Why do YOU attend the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC)?

by Visitor John_M on ‎03-14-2012 06:30 AM

OTC 2012 is just around the corner! Taking place in Houston at the Reliant Center, organizers are expecting record breaking attendance from around the world. And since this is the biggest event of the year for the Oil and Gas industry, it is the perfect opportunity for us to showcase our products and services and network with our customers - we wouldn't miss it for anything.

 

Once again, Caterpillar will be prominently displayed in the center of the main hall exhibiting an array of the latest in drilling products and technologies. Caterpillar continues to develop these products with the customers success in mind, utilizing future technologies today. One such technology that will be highlighted at our booth this year will be the 3512C DGB (Dynamic Gas Blending) engine. Our Dynamic Gas Blending technology is a closed loop control system that continuously optimizes gas substitution and has the capability to automatically adjust to changing gas quality, as well as having an improved control display and functionality and maintaining the traditional 3500 power and transient response ratings.

Also on display will be a multitude of other drilling and well service products as well as a variety of services from our world class Dealer support network - but most important of all, a staff of product experts will be on hand to answer any question you might have!

 

This year, we will also be proudly displaying our newly designed exhibit structure based around our 2012 theme 'Tomorrow's Power Solutions. Today'. And, like last year, we will be hosting a cocktail reception on Monday and Tuesday evenings, free to all in attendance, so please feel free to stop by!

 

So, those are just a few of the reasons why Caterpillar will be attending OTC this year - now we want to know why YOU attend OTC!
