Does your company have the next great energy industry innovation to showcase at LAGCOE 2017?

For much of its existence, the oil and gas industry has pushed the limits of innovation. Through hard work, creativity and “out-of-the-box” thinking, extraordinary new technologies have been developed to find and produce oil and natural gas.

For the 4th time in the exposition’s existence, LAGCOE will host the New Technology Showcase program, a dedicated technical session recognizing exhibitors’ best forward thinking solutions by giving them an opportunity to present a brief overview of a recent innovation or technological advancement. This forum will allow companies a chance to showcase new technology to the scores of industry leaders and LAGCOE attendees assembled for this one compact time slot. All LAGCOE 2017 exhibitors and select sponsors are eligible to participate in this program.

The New Technology Showcase program is sponsored by Drilling Contractor.
