DSC_0111Talk about feeling energised. As I fly back to New York from Houston, blogging about my time there is a good way to reflect on what I’ve just witnessed. Offshore Technology Conference is the largest energy conference on the planet with over 90,000 delegates. This is Texas after all: ‘big’ takes on a whole new meaning here.

I was ready to be impressed with the British representation at the conference. Houston is the UK’s third largest US gateway for international trade, and Texas imports more from Britain than any other state. What I saw was beyond impressive. The UK, internationally recognised as a global leader in offshore products and services, has the largest international representation at this year’s OTC with 350 companies, universities and industry organisations.
