Thousands of alumni, faculty, students and industry leaders gathered to network and mingle as they enjoyed crawfish, bbq, beer, drinks and live music.

Since its inception, the annual spring event has raised over $1 million to benefit engineering scholarship and academic programs.

The event serves as the unofficial kick off to the 2019 Offshore Technology Conference, which took place May 6-9 at NRG Park.

Now in its 50th year, the OTC brings energy professionals together to exchange ideas and opinions to advance the scientific and technical knowledge of offshore resources.

In honor of the Crawfish Boil's 30th anniversary, select committee members and sponsors received awards for their support and participation at this year’s event. 

The 2019 UH Crawfish Boil awardees are:

• Cameron (a Schlumberger Company)
