Special thanks to Indsur Stelcor, Inc.: AUCC and 2012 Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, Texas

4 May 2012

Sponsored by a new member of AUCC, Indsur Stelcor, Inc., AUCC had an excellent opportunity to participate in one of the largest and most prominent oil and gas exhibitions in the United States, the 2012 Offshore Technology Conference at Reliant Park in Houston, Texas.  The 2012 OTC, held from April 29, 2012 through May 4, 2012, was an enriching experience for AUCC to meet U.S. companies with existing investments in Uzbekistan as well speak to those who have interest and are in the process of studying the country's oil and gas potential and resources.  AUCC would like to express its special thanks and gratitude to our sponsor, Indsur Stelcor, Inc. and looks forward to continuing such cooperation and participating in similar events that would allow the chamber to increase the U.S. business community's awareness of our organization and the purpose that we serve.   

According to the press release issued by the event organizers, "Attendance at the conference reached a 30-year high of 89,400, the third highest in show history and up 14% from last year.

Attendance surpassed the 2011 total of 78,645, and the sold-out exhibition was the largest in event history at 641,350 ft² with the addition of the outdoor pavilion, up from 603,000 ft² in 2011. The exhibition had 2,500 companies representing 46 countries, including 200 new exhibitors that included exhibitors from Bahrain, Hungary, Israel, Lithuania, New Zealand..."

"OTC 2012 was the most successful event we have had since the early 80s," said Steve Balint, Chairman of OTC. "In terms of strength of the technical sessions and technology on display, OTC reached a record-breaking number of people and offered the most ways to connect, educate, and conduct business. The industry is on the rise and challenges are ahead, making it more important than ever to collaborate and share best practices with colleagues all over the world. OTC is the place to do that."

This year's event featured eight panel sessions, 29 executive keynote presentations at luncheons and breakfasts, and 300 technical papers. Speakers from major, independent, and national operators; global government officials; and academia presented their views on the current challenges and future directions of the industry.
