"We are excited about the response to the introduction of the Spotlight on New Technology program," said Rod Allan, OTC .04 Chairman. "The companies that are involved in the offshore industry are incredibly innovative, as they have to be, due to the technical challenge inherent in producing oil and natural gas at ever-increasing water depths in more remote locations."
Applications for the Spotlight on New Technology were distributed at OTC .03 and were due 9 January 2004. Submissions had to meet four criteria: new and innovative, proven, broad interest, and significant impact.
Winners will be recognized on site at this year's conference, scheduled 3-6 May, on the exhibition floor and in the registration area. Spotlight on New Technology will continue as an annual recognition program coinciding with OTC. For more information about the winners, visit OTC 2004
