Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Exposition officials are accepting applications for the 2015 Spotlight on Technology program that will highlight innovation and technological advancement by exhibitors at this October’s LAGCOE show.

The awards program, sponsored by oil and gas publication Drilling Contractor, recognizes new technologies that advance discovery and production of oil and natural gas.

Registration is restricted to companies that have signed up as exhibitors or sponsors for LAGCOE 2015, which will be held at the Cajundome & Convention Center in Lafayette on Oct. 27-29. LAGCOE is held every two years in October. There is no cost to exhibitors who register for the program.

The deadline to register is Friday through an application at lagcoe.com/spotlightontechnology.

Finalists for the program will be evaluated by a panel of judges using five criteria: new; innovative; proven; broad interest; and significant impact.

Each winner will present a 10-minute overview to industry leaders and LAGCOE will produce a one-minute video of each winner.
