Arctic Technology Conference 2015*
The Arctic Technology Conference (ATC) 2015 makes a move to Copenhagen, Denmark, for its fourth conference, building on the highly successful conferences held in Houston, Texas. ATC 2015 will provide easier access for European and Asian Arctic practitioners, while still allowing easy access from North America. This will create an opportunity for unprecedented communication and collaboration about challenges and solutions for the global exploration and development of onshore and offshore Arctic basins. ATC 2015 will be held 23–25 March 2015 at the Bella Center in Copenhagen. ATC will return to North America in 2016 and the plan is to alternate between continents every year.
“There is a huge amount of Arctic activity currently being planned and executed in regions of Scandinavia, Greenland and Russia,” said Han Tiebout, ATC 2014 Technical Program Chair. “Copenhagen’s central location and broad accessibility make it a strategic choice to host ATC 2015 and attract these international professionals who wouldn’t normally attend in Houston.”
ATC is an Arctic-focused expansion of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), the world’s foremost event for the development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production and environmental protection, founded in 1969. ATC is built upon OTC’s successful multidisciplinary approach with 14 technical societies and organizations working together to deliver the world’s most comprehensive Arctic event. The annual Arctic Technology Conference has a proven success record in providing a worldwide platform for industry colleagues, vendors and academia to network, share ideas, research and cutting edge technology to overcome the challenges for producing in the world’s harshest climate.
“ATC represents the culmination of years of growing and successful Arctic sessions happening at OTC and expanding the event to the international arctic regions will keep energy professionals on the cutting edge of its exploration and development” said OTC Board Vice-Chairman Joe Fowler.
