Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Exposition (LAGCOE), one of the world's pioneer oil and gas expositions, has announced the 2015 New Technology Showcase winners sponsored by Drilling Contractor.
Seven LAGCOE-exhibiting companies have been selected to showcase their new technologies. Each winning company will present a 10 minute overview of its innovation to industry leaders and LAGCOE attendees. This awards program recognizes companies with revolutionary technologies that advance the process of discovering and producing oil and natural gas. The winning technologies are:

“We received exceptional applications from companies presenting outstanding technological advancements,” said Jeff DuBois, LAGCOE Technical Sessions Committee Co-Chair. “This year’s award winners have pushed oil and gas industry limits through creativity, efficiency and safety.”
All technologies were reviewed by a panel of judges who evaluated submissions based on five criteria: new, innovative, proven, broad interest and significant impact. These criteria serve as an all-inclusive standard that measures the value of each submitted technology within the energy industry.
The winning technologies are no more than two years old based upon the first time it was used in application or announced to the market. Additionally, all winners introduced a new patent that is not in violation of any known patents.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
