GL Noble Denton to Poll O&G Professionals at OTC 2012

GL Noble Denton, the global independent technical advisor to the oil and gas industry, will poll hundreds of industry professionals on issues affecting the Americas market during the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) April 30 through May 3, 2012.

The company will be conducting three Industry Snapshot Polls during the conference, one for each full day of the event. Conference attendees are invited to GL Noble Denton’s stand (2241-K) to take part in the poll, which will ask them to vote on three key issues:

  • Will gas replace oil as America’s primary energy source by 2030?
  • Should operators always be liable for exploration and production risks?
  • Has US investment in deepwater R&D stalled since Macondo?

Participants will be invited to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to these questions each day, using their business cards as ballot slips. The results of each day’s question will be announced the following morning, before voting on a new issue begins. The poll will also completed online by senior professionals from across the industry.

Pekka Paasivaara, member of the GL Executive Board, said: "After a period of volatility, this year’s Offshore Technology Conference will demonstrate how quickly the American oil and gas industry is returning to growth and stability. But there are still a number of issues that are being debated by professionals across the industry that are key to the future success of the sector; particularly when it comes to innovation, risk and the growth of the unconventional gas market.

"In conducting these polls, GL Noble Denton is able to capture our clients’ expectations for the future progress of the sector. We’re looking forward to welcoming conference attendees to our stand to have their say."
