From May 4-7, 2015, NRG Park in Houston, Texas will host the 2015 Offshore Technology Conference. OTC 2015 brings together thought leaders in the offshore energy industry to discuss and introduce new technological advances, safety and environmental solutions, and regulations impacting the sector. The event includes a number of informative technical sessions and panels in addition to downtime for scheduled breakfasts and luncheons.
The event will be kicked off by the Annual OTC Dinner on Sunday, May 3rd, which will recognize OTC Distinguished Achievement Award recipients. Proceeds from the dinner will support this year’s beneficiary – the IPAA/PESA Energy Education Center for the benefit of the Energy Institute High School. The Energy Institute is a magnet school with three educational focus areas for students; geosciences, energy alternatives, and offshore technology.
Supporting the next generation is a major emphasis of OTC 2015. Monday’s events will include “The Next Wave, a program for young professionals,” sponsored by BP. The expert speakers in the program will introduce challenges and opportunities for young people in this line of work, and provide a guide on how to land a job and drive the future of the offshore energy sector.
OTC 2015 will also showcase industrial leaders in the offshore equipment industry. United Electric Controls will be exhibiting at booth #5832 with our specialty transmitters for oilfield automation. We offer pressure, differential pressure, and temperature transmitters for critical safety, alarm, and emergency shutdown (ESD) applications. All of these solutions are vital to ensure safety during offshore operations. In particular, we’ll be showing off our award-winning One Series Safety Transmitter, which was recently recognized as Control Engineering’s 2015 Engineers’ Choice award winner in the Safety – Process Safety, Intrinsic Safety category.
In addition to the One Series Safety Transmitter, UE will be exhibiting pressure switches and transmitters that address the following offshore applications:
- BOP closing systems
- Instrument safety and emergency shutdown (ESD) panels
- Fire suppression systems
- Sub-sea valve monitoring
Adding to their suitability for offshore environments, UE instruments are compact to maximize panel space. They are welded, hermetically sealed, and composed of stainless steel, making them resistant to salt spray and humidity.
