The Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Exposition, one of the world’s pioneer oil and gas expositions, announced the 2013 Spotlight on New Technology award winners for innovation and technological advancement.

The awards program recognizes companies with revolutionary technologies that advance the process of discovering and producing oil and natural gas.

LAGCOE dedicates a technical session to recognize the winning technologies. Winners each present a 10-minute overview of their innovation to industry leaders attending LAGCOE. The technologies were reviewed by a panel of judges who evaluated submissions based on the five criteria of new, innovative, proven, broad interest and significant impact.


Eunice-based 5D Oilfield Magnetics' Open Hole Net can be used to retrieve a dropped object in the wellbore.

“We had outstanding applications from companies presenting exceptional technological advancements,” Chuck Schaub, LAGCOE technical sessions committee co-chair and EDG Inc. project manager, says in announcing the winners. “This year’s award winners have pushed industry limits through creativity, efficiency and safety.”

The following 2013 Spotlight on New Technology winners will be recognized Wednesday, Oct. 23, from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. during the technical presentations portion of LAGCOE at the Cajundome Convention Center second level.
