TALISMAN Energy (UK) welcomed the 2009 intake of students on to the company’s scholarship programme at a gala awards dinner in the magnificent surroundings of Aberdeen Art Gallery last month.
Talisman’s principal offshore contracting partner, Wood Group, joined the celebrations as it also handed out scholarships. A total of 23 students – 19 on the Talisman programme and four from Wood Group – received their awards in front of an audience of staff from both companies, senior representatives of both the University of Aberdeen and The Robert Gordon University, family and friends.
The awards were handed out by Talisman UK vice-president John Forrest and Wood Group chief executive Allister Langlands.
Entertainment was provided by the Ruby Electric Strings Quartet.
