Offshore Technology Conference Asia (OTC Asia) 2016

Excellence in Asia - There are few events with a legacy as deep and rich as that of the Offshore Technology Conference. Founded in 1969, OTC broke new ground in 2014 with the inaugural Offshore Technology Conference Asia held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Over the past 45 years, the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) has become the industry’s largest and most prestigious conference and exhibition of its kind. With over 94,000 attendees from 130 countries in 2015, the world’s leading offshore event has firmly cemented its presence during a challenging period for the industry. With its focus on the development of offshore resources in the field of drilling, exploration, production, and environmental protection, it is the ‘gold standard’ forum where energy professionals meet to exchange ideas, opinions and best practices to advance scientific and technical knowledge. 

To ensure a diverse and multi-disciplinary programme, OTC’s 13 industry organisations and societies representing a broad spectrum of engineering fields related to geoscience, petroleum, mining, metallurgical, civil, mechanical, electrical, marine, oceanic and naval architecture work cooperatively to develop the comprehensive technical programme. 

Themed Excellence in Asia, the conference will address Asia’s longstanding recognition for delivering excellence in technology, innovation, execution and human resources to many major international flagship industries. As the region continues to develop as a foremost consumer and provider of energy, the Excellence in Asia theme resonates strongly.


In line with the conference theme there will be two Executive Plenary sessions.Featuring high-level CEOs from cutting edge industries, this non-oil and gas plenary will address leadership styles, innovation philosophies and business models that have helped Asian enterprises achieve global success. Not only will the conference programme include these engaging plenaries, but will also feature Country Briefing Sessions and complimenting these unique conference sessions will be a robust technical programme built by the OTC Asia 2016. 

Country Briefing Sessions will see nine nations including Australia, Indonesia, Korea and Malaysia showcase their offshore experiences, strategy developments, regulatory structures and investment opportunities. 

Malaysia's country session will be moderated by YBhg. Dato' Azman Mahmud, CEO of MIDA. This country session will provide a platform for global players in the O&G industry to have a first-hand take on Malaysia’s plans to be the Asia Pacific hub for O&G; and the opportunity to meet Malaysian companies that are seeking collaborative partners for their engagement in the Asia Pacific O&G sector.
