Quorum

Oilfield Helping Hands (OHH) has been named the 2017 beneficiary of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) Distinguished Achievement Award. OHH is a nonprofit charitable organization, established in Houston in 2003, that is comprised of volunteers devoted to providing financial assistance to oilfield workers in financial crisis.

“The OTC Distinguished Achievement Awards Luncheon does more than just support great causes in the industry, it also raises awareness about them. We’re beyond proud that Oilfield Helping Hands has been chosen as this year’s beneficiary and know this honor will have a positive impact on the lives and wellbeing of several worthy families in need,” OHH President Gregory Rachal said.

On May 2, OTC will host the Distinguished Achievement Award Luncheon at the NRG Center in Houston. The event raises funds for worthy causes, recognizes industry achievements, and provides an opportunity for industry leaders to network with colleagues from around the world.

“We’re proud to name OHH as this year’s beneficiary. The event’s Executive Advisory Board was most impressed by the organization’s commitment to helping families that have been a part of our industry and have hit hard times,” Joe Fowler, OTC Board of Directors said.

He continued, “Specifically, OHH assists families in financial crisis due to medical and other serious circumstances. It works diligently to keep costs low to ensure as much money as possible can go directly toward benefitting the families.”

To date OHH has distributed more than $3.3 million to hundreds of families across the U.S.

“Thanks to OTC, we are confident that we’ll be able to support even more oilfield families experiencing financial crisis,” Rachal said.
