USA Chapter Events

Monthly Lunch & Learns

At these regular monthly events, networking and lunch are followed by a concise, topical technical presentation. With an emphasis on case studies, this bite-size event consistently provides members and their guests with a look at the latest and greatest that the industry has achieved.

Lunch & Learns are typically held the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Notifications will go out if one is postponed or cancelled.

We’re starting an offshore section of the ICOTA USA chapter. This section is going to focus on all types of intervention work being performed in the Gulf of Mexico, from new deep water subsea completions to P & A work on the shelf. The goal is to bring to light the existing and new challenges of today’s offshore well intervention industry and help solve these issues by improving communication and promoting technical awareness.

We are accepting abstracts for the 2015 technical luncheon schedule for both Houston and New Orleans / Lafayette.    Contact me if you are interested.
