OTC 2013 was the largest ever with exhibitors covering some 652,185 sq ft (60,590 sq m) of floor space.  104,000 offshore drilling, exploration, production, and environmental professionals, the largest number in 30 years, flocked to Houston to take part in the show.

Aquaterra Energy was one of more than 2,700 companies from 40 countries exhibiting and its stand was teaming with activity throughout the event.  The star attraction was a scale model of its Sea Swift conductor supported platform.  Aquaterra Energy’s first unique Sea Swift was installed successfully in 2007, heralding a huge advancement in platform innovation.

Patrick Phelan, Managing Director of Aquaterra Energy said: “We are immensely proud of the Sea Swift, which offers ultimate flexibility and unites the advantages of a platform with the rig-run benefits of a subsea development, and the interest show visitors displayed in the model is testament to its success.”
