OTC Asia 2018 - Advisory Committee Chairman

Message - Advisory Committee Chairman

Datuk Wan Zul

Dear Industry Colleagues,

Following the success of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) Asia in Malaysia, we are pleased to invite you to participate and showcase your technical and innovative solutions, advancements and services at the upcoming OTC Asia, to be held from 20 - 23 March 2018 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


Designed and programmed to benefit the industry in the region and around the globe, OTC Asia is a collaborative effort amongst 13 international professional sponsoring organisations, two endorsing organisations, and numerous supporting organisations.

Following OTC Brasil and the Arctic Technology Conference, OTC Asia represents the third international expansion of the highly successful OTC held annually in Houston, Texas, U.S.A. OTC is the world’s premier event for the development of offshore resources, concentrating on the fields of drilling, exploration, production and environmental protection. For over forty-five years, it has provided a platform for the industry to come together to solve challenges, network, share lessons learnt and conduct business.

The maiden OTC Asia, held in March 2014 in Kuala Lumpur, achieved a remarkable attendance of over 25,000 industry professionals from 88 countries and 79 nationalities. More recently, the second OTC Asia held in March 2016 succeeded in attracting more than 20,000 attendees from 70 countries despite the challenging industry climate, establishing it as the region’s premier international offshore energy event. It is anticipated that OTC Asia 2018 will match, if not exceed, the benchmarks set by previous OTC Asia editions.

PETRONAS is pleased to be continuing its support of Asia’s premier offshore energy event as OTC Asia’s Corporate Supporting Organisation. We look forward to your participation and working with you to make OTC Asia 2018 a success.
