ASCE OTC Hall of Fame Awards

  • The ASCE OTC Hall of Fame Gala takes place annually during the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, TX, at the Petroleum Club. 

    Please join us for our special tenth anniversary celebration May 5, 2015, as we recognize extraordinary papers submitted to previous OTCs. These papers form the core of current practice throughout the world, and have had a lasting impact on the profession.

    Purchase Tickets

    Tickets are available for purchase for either individual seats ($150) or a table of 10 ($1500). All seating is assigned and name badges are provided at the reception area of the Petroleum Club. If you purchase more than one ticket or a table reservation you'll be contacted for your full guest list, which must be provided by Friday, May 1.  

    Sponsor the Gala

    Sponsorship of the Hall of Fame is essential to its continued success, and ASCE and COPRI appreciate your generous support. With your donation, the Hall of Fame Awards Committee is able to host a wonderful evening for the honorees, and celebrate their lasting impact on the offshore industry.

    We hope your company will consider sponsoring the Gala in 2015. For additional information about our Sponsorship Packages, please contact: Sean Scully by email or at 703-295-6154.
