"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.
