The Offshore Achievement Awards 2017 have been launched at this year’s Intelligent Energy.

The event will have a heavy focus on technology with The Innovator, Emerging Technology, Safety Innovations and Environmental Innovation Awards remaining an important part of the line-up.

The awards will also see the return of Ian Phillips as chairman of the awards.

He is also chief executive of the Oil and Gas Innovation Centre and part of the Intelligent Energy 2016 executive committee.

Ian said: “In the middle of a significant downturn, last year’s awards were an encouraging boost for the offshore industry, and a reminder that innovation and collaboration are still a vital part of the current much-needed cost-reduction efforts.

“A key part of ensuring this innovation continues is by encouraging the development of new ideas and technologies, which is why Intelligent Energy is such a perfect platform to launch this year’s awards. The conference theme, ‘New Horizons: Intelligent Energy in a Changing World’, is completely aligned with SPE’s mission to exchange knowledge related to exploration, development and production, the foundation of the Offshore Achievement Awards.

“With just under a month until entries open for this year’s awards, we again urge anyone with a success story to come forward and be recognised. Previous winners have used the OAA accolade in a number of ways, from peer endorsement of their technology to recognition of their workforce. We hope to see the 2017 finalists and winners continue to build upon this momentum.”

The 2017 Offshore Achievement Awards categories are:

• Emerging Technology
• Innovator
• Safety Innovations
• Environmental Innovation
• Export Achievement
• Collaboration
• Outstanding Skills Development Programme
• Young Professional
• Above and Beyond
• Great Small Company
• Great Large Company
• Significant Contribution

The awards are open for entries until November 30th.

A black tie ceremony will take place at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on Thursday, March 23rd, 2017.

Last year’s Significant Contribution winner, Dan Purkis, 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.

“I would whole heartedly encourage those considering entering the awards to do so; celebrating success has never been more important.”
