The Paper Proposal Form
A proper review of your paper proposal requires that it contain adequate information on which to make a judgment. The suggested limit of 200-350 words should not be constraining if the paper proposal is limited to the following factual highlights:
- Description of the Proposed Paper: Outline the scope and nature of the work upon which the paper is based (e.g., field data, laboratory data, original analysis, or computer work). If the paper is a review paper, carefully state the extent of the coverage.
- Application: Describe the possible applications of the information provided in the paper.
- Results, Observations, and Conclusions: Summarize the results and major conclusions to be presented in the paper, and state how these differ from previous work on the same subject. State whether new information will be revealed and whether the data from field, laboratory, or computer work will be included.
- Significance of Subject Matter: Describe the significance of the proposed paper by listing up to three technical contributions or additions to the technical knowledge base of the petroleum industry.
The program committee will observe the following criteria when selecting papers for the conference.
- The paper must not have had prior publication or circulation.
- The paper should contain significant new knowledge or experience in some field of offshore exploration and production.
- The paper must be technically correct and should be of interest to a reasonable number of people working in the field of offshore operations. It may be theoretical or present the results of laboratory studies, and it may state or analyse a problem. The paper may also be a review paper, but must be significant value to the technical field.
- The paper may present information about equipment and tools to be used in exploration and production. Such papers must show the definite application and limitations of such equipment and avoid commercialism and the used of trade names.
- The paper proposal should have the necessary clearance before it is submitted to OTC. Prospective authors should advise of any clearance problems when the papers proposal is submitted.
Preparation of Manuscripts
A manuscript wil be required for the conference per the OTC policy of “no paper, no podium.” Manuscripts will be included on the CD proceedings, available for purchase at the conference.

Commercialism in papers submitted for the CD proceeding may be cause of removal of the paper from the program.
- The paper must be written in English.
