Jan Einar Gravdal, IRIS, was one of the researchers joining OTC on behalf of DrillWell


OFFSHORE TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE 2017

12.06.2017

More than 64,700 attended the annual Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) at NRG Park in Houston 1-4 May. For DrillWell it presented a significant opportunity of networking and industry meetings.

The 49th edition of the conference featured approximately 350 technical papers, 13 panels, 44 technical sessions as well as topical breakfasts and luncheons, according to their website.
Jan Einar Gravdal, Øystein Arild and Dave Gardner joined the conference on behalf of DrillWell as well as IRIS.

- We had several meetings with industry-partners as well as a stand and a poster (*) at OTC that generated a lot of interest. The research done in DrillWell on automation, modeling, digitalization and P&A are of broad and current interest in the industry and it is important being visible at these type of events. I also brought copies of the DrillWell annual report, but I should have brought more because they were all gone within the first hours of the conference, said Gravdal, programme manager in DrillWell and senior research scientist at IRIS.

Jan Erik Ødegård, Professor at Rice University, introduced the NORTEX
workshop about digitalization of the drilling process.


Øystein Arild, research director at IRIS and member of DrillWell, mentioned networking as a key benefit of joining the conference.  - Apart from the stand and poster at the conference, we went to visit ConoccoPhillips, Halliburton and Visuray to brief them on our activities within DrillWell and IRIS. These were rewarding meetings for both parties and I am pleased that they showed great interest in the research we are doing both in DrillWell and IRIS.

After business hours, the Norwegian delegation (Norway2OTC) also had time to visit the Royal Norwegian Consulate in Houston.

- This is another arena for networking where most of the Norwegians traveling to OTC get together and is welcomed by the Royal Norweigan Consulate General. We had an exciting time at OTC this year, and I am happy with the interest from the industry as well as the learning experience meeting up and discussing our research with the industry, concluded Gravdal.
