Editor's Note: MTR June 2014

By Greg Trauthwein, Editor

Last month I dispatched Eric Haun, our web and MTR contributing editor, to the scenic west coast of Norway for a “Subsea Norway” tour, a week filled with visits to some of the largest and most powerful subsea companies on the planet (read Statoil, DNV GL, FMC, etc.) as well as a large number of small and innovative organizations, the type of organizations that make up the backbone of the subsea market. Traditionally I would never miss an opportunity to travel to and through Norway, as it is one of my favorite countries in the world, professionally and personally. But a hectic travel schedule and the need to see the country and its subsea industry players with a fresh perspective fell in Eric’s favor. Starting in this edition and continuing through September, Haun delivers insightful overviews on the subsea trends in and around Norway, including a special “Subsea Norway” feature focus in the coming MTR100 edition scheduled for publication in the July/August edition.

Speaking of the MTR100, our editorial team has been busy for months collecting and collating applications for this, our Ninth Annual MTR100. As many of you know, the MTR100 has evolved and taken on a life of its own, a showcase for 100 innovative companies and organizations in this space.  While the deadline is drawing closer, I encourage you to visit our newly designed website at and register your company for consideration for inclusion in the 2014 MTR100. While I cannot guarantee that your efforts will be rewarded with publication in the July/August edition, I can guarantee that if you don’t apply, you will not be considered, as “applying” is requirement number one. Take a few moments to fill out the information at, or simply email to me your details at [email protected] and we will ensure that your details are entered into the system.
