  • OTC 2006 expands vistas to new depths, new horizons

    K. Abraham

    Topics ranging from use of technological gains to meet burgeoning world energy needs to how the industry must cope with manpower deficits pack the schedule. As the world’s premier event for the global upstream industry, OTC continues to showcase innovations and innovate, itself. An ability by managing partner SPE and 21 co-sponsoring, endorsing and supporting organizations to bring new features to OTC has reinforced attendance, which hit a 20-year high in 2005. This year, the theme is “New Depths, New Horizons,” and the OTC Board has found several new ways to make this year’s experience better and more valuable for attendees. Top among the 2006 improvements is the addition of the Pavilions exhibition section in front of Houston’s Reliant Center. There will also be “The Next Wave” session, a new venue on Thursday afternoon for professionals under 35. In addition, attendees will be able to register online until the last day of the conference.
