The 2016 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is taking place May 2 – 5 in Houston, TX. During this conference, energy professionals meet to exchange ideas and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for offshore resources and environmental matters. Founded in 1969, OTC’s flagship conference is held annually in Houston. OTC gives attendees access to leading-edge technical information and also holds the industry’s largest equipment exhibition. It’s large international participation provides amazing opportunities for global sharing of technology, expertise, products and best practices.
Houston recently faced a major flooding event. However, the city is currently drying out and recovering. According to the OTC website, “The safety and security of OTC attendees is always a priority.” The board is consistently monitoring the weather and conditions and if serious weather conditions threaten to affect the conference of the safety of the attendees, they will work closely with all parties involved to keep attendees informed. However, OTC is on-track and opened up as planned. OTC is also making a donation to the Houston Flood Relief Fund to assist in recovery efforts.
OTC brings together more than 90,000 professionals from 130+ countries. RF System Lab is excited to be one of the 2,752 exhibitors at this year’s show.
Casey O’Tool, RF System Lab’s borescope expert, is onsite presenting the VJ-Advance articulating video borescope to offshore maintenance professionals. The lightweight and extremely portable AA-battery-powered VJ-Advance is the ideal tool for inspecting pipes and ensuring that no pitting, corrosion, cracks, or other defects are occurring. Additionally, the joystick-controlled 360-degree articulation on the line of VJ-Advance video borescopes makes turbine and rotating machinery inspections stress-free.
