The OTC 2016 program is a collaboration between Greater Stavanger, GCE Subsea, Region Bergen, Subsea Valley, GCE NODE and Region Agder. The goal is to gather all Norwegian delegates and offer a varied program with a number of joint activities while also including the traditional regional activities. Together we will comprise “The Norwegian Delegation”.
The new organization of the OTC Norwegian Delegation is geared to provide an even better program tailored to include parallel sessions ensuring relevance for all participants. The OTC program includes activities and events for companies, politicians and public officials and academic and research institutions. The new organization will also be more cost-effective and simplify the registration process.
Agder’s OTC planning committee is comprised of both Agder counties, the municipalities of Kristiansand, Arendal and Grimstad, the University of Agder, Innovation Norway and GCE NODE. Agder’s OTC contingent to Houston will consist of company representatives, public officials and key academic personnel from the University of Agder and other regional research institutions.
In addition to the joint OTC program, GCE NODE together with IRIS and other partners, will host two workshops, one on Tuesday, May 3rd treating drilling and well technology, and another on Thursday, May 5th treating Plug & Abandonment. Both workshops are part of the NorTex Data Science Cluster recently awarded funding through the Norwegian Research Council’s INPART program.
More information regarding the preliminary OTC program and early registration with reduced fee may be found at www.norway2otc.no.
GCE NODE will have a 40 square meters stand in the Norwegian Pavilion hosted by Innovation Norway where NODE’s small and medium-sized enterprises will have an opportunity to showcase their technology, products and services at the industry’s key arena.

We look forward to your participation in the OTC 2016 Norwegian Delegation!
