Leading oil and gas industry body the Intervention & Coiled Tubing Association (ICoTA) is inviting nominations for its widely respected European Chapter Innovation Award.
The award recognises the application of technical innovation in the area of well intervention, with entrants being judged by the ICoTA European Chapter Committee.
The judging guidelines comprise three main criteria: technology, application and value to industry and is open to service companies and operators, which have developed technology within Europe across the past 18 months.
The deadline for entries is September 17, 2012. Finalists will be required to deliver a short presentation to judges on November 1 at the Marcliffe Hotel, Aberdeen.
The winner will be announced at the coveted SPE ICoTA European Well Intervention Seminar in Aberdeen’s AECC on November 14 and 15. The successful finalist will receive a trophy and a small award.
ICoTA Europe chairman, Callum Munro, said: “This award gives organisations the opportunity to showcase their products and knowledge in well intervention, an increasingly important sector within the North Sea. The award is unique in not only recognizing new technology development but also by understanding the application of existing technology to solve challenges in an innovative way.
