The Offshore Technology Conference marks 50 years, as it returns to Houston April 30 to May 3.
OTC 2018 returns to Houston’s NRG Park April 30 to May 3 this year, marking its 50th year bringing together engineers, technicians, executives, operators, scientists, and managers involved in offshore drilling, exploration, production, and environmental protection.
The oil and gas industry relies on the high-pressure power density of fluid power technologies to maximize exploration, production and drilling in harsh offshore environments. As wells are dug deeper and become more difficult to reach, the machines that are used in them must withstand extreme temperatures, pressures, damaging seawater and more. Hydraulics is up to the task.
This is why nearly 100 fluid power manufacturers can be seen on the exhibit floor (see the complete list below).
The 2017 edition of the event attracted more than 64,700 attendees from more than 100 countries and all fields in the offshore energy sector. This year’s event will see more than 2,000 exhibiting companies, and more than 350 technical presentations, 22 topical breakfast and luncheons, and 11 panel sessions.
