The 2022 Distinguished Achievement Award recipients will be announced in early 2022.
The Offshore Technology Conference Distinguished Achievement Awards is a significant event for OTC and its supporters. It recognizes the OTC Distinguished Achievement Award recipients, raises funds for a worthy cause, and provides an excellent opportunity for industry executives and leaders to network with colleagues from around the world.
The net proceeds from the awards dinner are donated to a charitable organization that is in some way connected to the offshore energy industry or to the communities where we operate. Approximately USD 2 million has been donated to worthy organizations in the past nine years of the event.
