About the Challenge

Join us on September 2, 2015 for CCIA’s Oil & Gas Cleantech Challenge.  The OGCC is a product innovation showcase and competition that connects clean technology solutions to the oil and natural gas industry.

This invitation-only event brings together oil and gas producers, clean technology solution providers, and Colorado’s research universities and includes pitch presentations, panel discussions followed by a VIP reception.

About the Selection Process

Oil and natural gas companies confidentially identify their greatest technology needs. A call for technology solutions is nationally distributed and interested clean technology companies enter a competitive vetting process, after which 10-12 of those selected will be invited to Denver on September 2, 2015 to present to the oil and gas companies.

Applications will be solicited for the following categories: Air, Water, Remote and Distributed Power, Power Management, and Materials. (scroll down to detailed descriptions)

Applications will be accepted beginning in July 2015. Please contact Mary Austin to receive more information.

Do You Have What We Are Looking For?


The Oil and Gas Cleantech Challenge: A Product Innovation Showcase and its partners would like to see:

  1. Innovative Products and Technologies
  2. Post Prototype
  3. Clean Technologies

Specific clean technology sectors include:


AIR (including but not limited to): control/reduction/detection of methane emissions from valves, piping and vented sources; control of flashing emissions from tanks, improved pressure relief devices and new designs to contain flashing emissions; smokeless burners for flash emissions combustion; flare control and flare efficiency improvements; remote sensing; non-emitting field equipment such as chemical pumps.

WATER (including but not limited to): real-time, efficient sampling and analysis; beneficial re-use of produced water including recycling; recycling of flowback water (gel fracs); new disposal methods; minimization of water volumes; well bore integrity monitoring systems.

REMOTE/DISTRIBUTED POWER (including but not limited to): rechargeable sources including batteries, fuel cells; modular combined heat and power; micro/islanded grid technology; field gas powered equipment.

POWER MANAGEMENT (including but not limited to): more energy efficient and responsive natural gas engines; efficient and clean generators; more efficient duel fuel (diesel and natural gas) engines that coordinate operations to provide power and response.

MATERIALS (including but not limited to): novel materials comprised of no or fewer hazardous chemicals; new products made from captured CO2.

OTHER (including but not limited to): limiting water and energy usage in operational divisions; mitigating engine noise pollution; dust control; information technology applications that limit environmental impact.
