Offshore Technology Research Center



OTRC Research Areas

The Offshore Technology Research Center conducts basic and applied research into important problems of reliability and performance of deepwater offshore structures. That's everything from mooring and riser systems, motions and loads, wind, wave and current forces, and seafloor characterization.

The research program is carried out by staff engineers and faculty of Texas A&M University and the University of Texas at Austin. We focus on issues facing the deepwater oil industry to insure the safe advancement of developing technologies.

Offshore Technology Research Center staff and facilities are available for all your research needs. Contracts for OTRC are administered by the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station. This allows contractors to take advantage of streamlined TEES contract procedures and low overhead rates.
