Energy companies from 26 countries have been selected as finalists for the Platts Global Energy Awards, an annual program recognizing exemplary industry leadership. The 2014 finalists, chosen from nearly 250 nominees from three dozen nominating countries and representing 6 continents, were announced today by program host Platts, a leading global provider of energy, petrochemicals, metals and agriculture information.
Established in 1999 and often described as “the Oscars of the energy industry,” the Platts Global Energy Awards highlight corporate and individual innovation, leadership and superior performance in 18 categories that span the entire energy complex.
“It’s gratifying that in its 16th year, the Awards program has attracted a record number of submissions and that not only is CEO of the Year hotly contested, but Corporate Social Responsibility is as well,” said Larry Neal, president of Platts. “Energy stewardship and sustainability have been important themes throughout the program’s history. I look forward to honoring the winners in these and other categories later this year and I applaud all of the finalists for their accomplishments thus far.“
