UK: Offshore Achievement Awards Finalists List Revealed

UK: Offshore Achievement Awards Finalists List Revealed

The shortlist for the Offshore Achievement Awards has been announced today, recognising the top individuals and companies in the energy industry.

The awards, re-launched in October by the Society of Petroleum Engineers with the support of main sponsor TAQA Bratani, will celebrate the finest talent in categories including overall company performance, commitment to safety and innovation.

Entries were open to UK-registered companies in the oil and gas industry and for the first time renewables companies, a move demonstrating the increasing presence of companies in this sector operating in the North Sea.

The black-tie awards ceremony, now in its 26th year, is to take place on Thursday 15 March, 2012 at Ardoe House Hotel in Aberdeen. Winners will be announced on the evening and presented with a bespoke trophy designed by a Robert Gordon University student.

Masud Javaid, chairman of SPE Aberdeen and senior economist at Total E&P UK, said: “It has been hugely encouraging to see such a positive response and high number of entries, from both established companies as well as newer entrants. The return of the Offshore Achievement Awards has made a significant impact on the industry calendar.

In recognition of this, the Scottish Enterprise Company Growth Team is offering each finalist the opportunity to take part in an Independent Business Review, followed by a fully funded strategy workshop with the aim of identifying key growth priorities within the company. Following this, there may be potential to access SE services and supporting activities to further support these priorities.

The entries we received this year were of an exceptionally high standard which made the selection process very difficult, however our expert judging panel is confident that the very best of the nominations have been recognised and made it through to the shortlist.”

Leo Koot, managing director of main sponsor TAQA Bratani, said: “There has been a fantastic response to the re-launch of the offshore achievement awards and it’s very encouraging and exciting to see so many organisations proud to share the successes of their company and people.

“It’s important to celebrate excellence and achievement in the industry and help foster talent, creativity and innovation through awards such as this.”

Following this, there may be potential to access SE services and supporting activities to further support these priorities.
