"A Sea of Resources. An Ocean of Knowledge" is the theme for the 2005 Offshore Technology Conference. The Offshore Technology Conference is a unique opportunity to:

--  Meet with hundreds of vendors offering everything related to offshore
    oil and gas
--  Listen to hundreds of technical papers sharing field experience and
    technical developments
--  Learn about technologies recognized as innovations (through the
    Spotlight on Technology)
--  Network with individuals and companies who share your offshore
Through all the new technology developments, political changes, and economic volatility of the oil and gas industry for the past three decades, the Offshore Technology Conference has grown into a stable and valued event for industry executives, engineers, managers, and scientists. From its debut at the Albert Thomas Convention Center in Houston in 1969 to its zenith in 1982 to the stabilizing 1990s, OTC has experienced and reflected the pulse of the offshore industry. The 1999 event boasted the second-highest attendance and exhibition since 1985.

"The ICoTA Exhibition was a tremendous success. Buyers reacquainted themselves with our product line, while having the first public opportunity to view the unveiling of our 'Jet Motor.' The response and interest, over one thousand inquiries, was quite positive," said Jim Dial, President and CEO of Grifco International, Inc. "We believe the contacts generated at the exhibit could generate rental revenue of approximately $10 million in 2005."

Grifco International will be at booth number 3724 exhibiting our line of tools, including the "Jet Motor." Grifco International executives hope to see old and new faces at our booth and demonstrate our Coil Tubing Tools, Perf-drill, Motors, Rotor Jet, Pulsator, Rotating Tool, and Corrosion Inhibitor Tool.
