“It has been a challenging year for the sector as we work collectively to ensure security of energy supply for the UK whilst we have been faced with obstacles at home and abroad.
“However, our hard working and talented people have continued to provide the vital energy that we need for homes, hospitals and industries.
“This is a great opportunity to celebrate the key role our companies and individuals are playing, and continue to play, across the offshore energy sector.”
