OTC 2013 to focus on offshore regulation, expanding role of NOCs ///
With activity in the Gulf of Mexico back to pre-Macondo levels, and a plethora of new deepwater discoveries off Brazil, West Africa, Southeast Asia and the Eastern Mediterranean, a special emphasis is being placed during OTC 2013 on industry self-regulation, government policy and the increasing role of NOCs around the world.
OTC 2013 will be held May 6–9, at the Reliant Park complex in Houston, Texas. Attendance totaled 89,400 people from 110 different countries at last year’s show—the third highest level of attendance since 1982, when 108,161 visitors attended OTC. More than 2,500 exhibiting companies from 46 countries filled the exhibition area’s 641,350 sq ft, which exceeded the 1982 record of 631,000 sq ft of exhibit space. In 2013, OTC will break the record again, with an expected 650,000 sq ft of exhibition space to be used.
