Participating universities will showcase their R&D projects during one of the four days of the conference. See the schedule for Tuesday.

Distinguished Achievement Awards Luncheon

1200–1400 | NRG Center, Level 2 | Room TBD

The luncheon promises to be a memorable afternoon. We will recognize the OTC Achievement Awards for Individuals and Organizations. We will also recognize a beneficiary (Oilfield Helping Hands) with a donation from the event. 

The desire to give back to the oil and gas community is an important aspect of the luncheon, in addition to recognizing our most distinguished individuals and organizations. The event will donate the net proceeds from the Luncheon to a charitable organization that is in some way connected to the offshore energy industry or to the communities where we operate.
