About PTTC

The Petroleum Technology Transfer Council is a national not- for-profit organization established in 1994 by producers, state organizations and the DOE. While emphasizing the needs of independent oil and gas producers, PTTC’s activities also benefit consultants, service and supply companies, and other industry participants. To ensure timeliness and relevance of technical workshops and other activities, PTTC’s regional programs are developed under the guidance of local Producer Advisory Groups. Through these volunteers and the National Board of Directors, who are primarily domestic oil and natural gas operators, hundreds of producers and other industry participants nationwide contribute their time and expertise to the technology transfer program.

PTTC connects people, which impacts domestic production.

  • Producers rely upon the network for unbiased, no-nonsense technical information;

  • Technology providers communicate developing or under-applied technologies to producers;

  • Consultants better equip themselves for serving producers, which further broadens application; and

  • DOE uses the network to disseminate its R&D results and gather insights on domestic concerns and issues.

The connections achieved and technology information transferred through PTTC’s programs are reducing costs and increasing recovery in existing mature fields, expanding recovery from unconventional reservoirs, profitably developing ever-smaller domestic production and reserves, and increasing environmental stewardship.
