MTS Houston Section is the proud host of the 2017 Offshore Industry Outlook Conference, in association with the National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA).

The half-day Conference and lunch will be held at the Pelazzio, MARCH 30, 2017, from 8:00 am - 1:00 pm and included the regularly scheduled MTS Houston luncheon. (Registration/sign-in will open at 7:00 am)

Now in its 40th. year, the highly acclaimed Conference is designed to assist all those within the offshore oil and gas industry with a three-year forecast of both domestic and international developments, trends and critical issues that will impact business planning and future growth.

The marine/offshore industry continues to go through a myriad of changes - and the change in government always brings with it new policies and regulations. While some of these changes result in new challenges and opportunities, some bring with them countless problems and constraints, spurring the need for innovative corporate and industry planning and organization. The Conference addressed legislative issues and policies impacting activity in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as financial planning trends and forecasts within the offshore oil and gas industry.

A group of recognized marine offshore industry leaders discussed the outlook for offshore services and offshore drilling, with a focus on equipment use, regulatory policy, personnel and training, financial constraints, and technological developments. (Click here to view program online.)

The Conference concluded with a luncheon and presentation on future exploration and development opportunities in the offshore oil and gas industry.
