Following the success of last year’s awards, the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen Section has announced that entries are now open for the 2014 Offshore Achievement Awards.
The awards, which are hosted by SPE Aberdeen with the support of principal sponsor TAQA, have recognised outstanding success and innovation in the oil and gas sector for over 27 years. Last year’s awards ceremony attracted a record attendance of more than 530 industry professionals.
This year SPE Aberdeen has introduced two new categories, the Inspiring Leader and the Environmentalist awards. Both awards have been created to recognise excellence in the industry – by an inspirational leader of a team or organisation; and in the ever important area of environmental performance.
Ian Phillips, director of business consultancy Pale Blue Dot Energy Limited and the SPE board member responsible for organising the OAAs, said: “The Offshore Achievement Awards is a high profile event in the oil and gas calendar, celebrating all that is outstanding within this industry. The awards provide the ideal opportunity to recognise high achievers, new technologies and innovations and overall company performance.
