The LAGCOE 2013 program schedule, sponsored by Drilling Contractor, is now available online. The event will be held 22-24 October in Lafayette, La. Additionally, DC is sponsoring the LAGCOE Spotlight on New Technology Awards, which will recognize the industry’s forward-thinking solutions, innovations and technological advancements. Applications for the awards are due by 1 July. Information on eligibility and judging criteria can be found here.

This year’s technical program will include topics such as shale gas risk management, private equity investment in oilfield services and equipment companies, and decommissioning process optimization. Additionally, keynote speaker Stephen P. Thurston, VP of Chevron North America E&P Co, will address the short- and long-term outlook for the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

“LAGCOE 2013 offers technical sessions to address topics of high interest to attendees. As technology changes in our industry, so does the need to convey the associated effect it has on all facets of our business,” Technical Session Committee chairman Greg Stutes, Completion Specialists, said. “Our technical session committee focuses on producing a slate of technical speakers and topics that have significant relevance to the current state of our industry and also tie in well with LAGCOE, an onshore and offshore exposition. The technology transfer associated with the technical sessions provides critical technical information that is of high interest to decision makers.”

In 2011, LAGCOE welcomed 400 exhibiting companies from around the world and 14,000 attendees from 26 countries and 47 states. Register for this year’s show here.
