Offshore Technology Conference Houston

the dti invites South African exporters of Oil and Gas engineering, products and services to apply to participate at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC 2018) exhibition, scheduled to take place from 30 April – 3 May 2018 in Houston, Texas, USA. The deadline date for submission of complete National Pavilion application forms is 08 December 2017. No further applications will be considered thereafter. 

Although the conference is historically labelled “Offshore” (started in 1969), most of the exhibitors and visitors are involved in both the onshore and offshore industries.

We are expecting the Final Investment Decision (FID) of the Anadarko and/or ENI onshore LNG projects in Mozambique early next year and will again use the OTC event to maximise our structural steel capabilities exposure to the major Houston based EPCMs.

the dti will offer the following financial support to qualifying firms:

  • Air travel assistance up to R17,000 (SMME’s and Black Owned Enterprises only)
  • Daily subsistence allowance up to R3,000 per day (SMME’s and Black Owned Enterprises only)
  • Exhibition space and booth rental costs.
  • Freight forwarding of display material
