Hunt for offshore success stories

Published:  07 September, 2016

Following a reported record 30th anniversary year (in terms of both entrants and attendees) for the awards in 2016, event organisers the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen and returning principal sponsor TAQA say they are looking forward to hearing the success stories of both companies and individuals when entries open on 3 October. As in previous years, entries are welcome from both the offshore oil and gas and renewables sectors.

Categories this year will continue to feature a heavy focus on technology with The Innovator, Emerging Technology, Safety Innovations and Environmental Innovation Awards remaining an important part of the line-up.

Similarly, individuals will be eligible for the Young Professional, Above and Beyond and Significant Contribution categories, whilst businesses can apply for the Great Large and Great Small Company, Outstanding Skills Development Programme, Export Achievement and Collaboration.

Last year’s Significant Contribution winner, Dan Purkis (pictured) , was part of the opening breakfast for this year’s Intelligent Energy. He said: “Winning the 2016 Significant Contribution Award wasn’t just a great honour, it has also served as a platform for recognition, aiding Well-SENSE’s exposure and leading to enquiries from operators and service companies around the globe.”
