The ICoTA Award for Innovation & Technology
The ICoTA Award for Innovation and Technology is judged and presented annually by the Europe Chapter of the Intervention & Coiled Tubing Association. Awarded first in 2001, it recognises both the contribution to innovation and the introduction of new technologies within the well intervention arena. As of today, it is the most established and longest running award which ICoTA has globally. The aim is to recognise a service company and/or operator for the application of technological innovation in well intervention.
The 2019 winner will be announced at the SPE ICoTA 25th European Well Intervention Conference on 13-14 November 2019. Winners are presented with a perpetual trophy and an individual award which they can retain.
The winner’s success in pushing forward the boundaries of well intervention and coiled tubing technology will be publicised widely in the media and throughout the industry, including to both the ICoTA and SPE Aberdeen membership and at SPE ICoTA European Well Intervention Conference.
Entries are judged by the Committee of ICoTA European Chapter and finalists are requested to make a short presentation to the judging committee.
Judging Criteria and Guidelines for Entries
- Technology - either new technology or existing technology used in an innovative way.
- Application - where is the innovation being applied and what does it do?
- Value to the industry - why did you use this technology? For example, to reduce risk, increase recovery, improve safety or minimise environmental impact.
Conditions for Award
The technology should have been either:
- developed in Europe and applied in Europe or elsewhere for the first time, or
- developed elsewhere and applied for the first time in Europe
The technology must have been applied for the first time since 31st March 2018.
The award may be presented for a variation of a theme rather than an entirely new technology.
The award may recognise the general nurturing of new technology rather than a single project.
