This year’s Technology Showcase will feature a keynote address by Kemal Anbarci, Vice President & Managing Executive of Chevron Technology Ventures (CTV). CTV champions innovation, commercialization and integration of emerging technologies within Chevron. CTV identifies, acquires, tests, validates, and, if appropriate, helps integrate technologies into the company's core businesses. Currently 15 companies in the O&G space are in their investment portfolio.
The Research Collaborative is seeking applications from technology providers who are interested in presenting to the natural gas community their technology that is ready for “field test”. The technology should be ready for pilot testing, slip stream or full scale demonstration in the Marcellus shale, Utica shale or at a coal-bed methane or coal-mine methane site. Technologies relating to natural gas producing, pipeline and service companies are of interest. In a format similar to that of a venture capital fair, selected suppliers will be asked to deliver an 8-minute presentation followed by a 2-minute Q&A session at the September 23, 2014 showcase. Up to twelve applicants will be selected to present at the showcase. In the past two years, several technologies that were presented have established industry partnerships.
To be considered as a presenter, the application available at http://www.sgicc.org/technology-showcase.html must be completed and submitted online by the deadline of July 25, 2014. A selection committee of MSC Research Collaborative members will review the applications and notify the selected presenters by August 15, 2014.
