Energy industry Oscars return to Aberdeen

Energy industry Oscars return to Aberdeen
The cream of the UK energy industry is gathering in Aberdeen tonight for the pinnacle of its awards calendar, recognising excellence, innovation and achievement across the oil and gas and renewables sectors.

The cream of the UK energy industry is gathering in Aberdeen tonight for the pinnacle of its awards calendar, recognising excellence, innovation and achievement across the oil and gas and renewables sectors.

The Offshore Achievement Awards have recognised the top individuals and companies in the energy industry for more than 25 years and are widely regarded as the offshore industry’s Oscars.

The awards were re-launched in October by the Society of Petroleum Engineers with the support of main sponsor TAQA Bratani and media sponsor the Press and Journal. They will celebrate the finest talent in categories including overall company performance, commitment to safety and innovation.

Entries were opened up to UK-registered companies in the oil and gas industry and, for the first time, to renewables companies – a move demonstrating the increasing significance of companies in this sector operating in the North Sea.

The black-tie awards ceremony, now in its 26th year, will take place tonight at the Ardoe House Hotel in Aberdeen.

SPE board member Ian Phillips, director of CO2DeepStore Limited, said: “It has been hugely encouraging to see such a positive response and high number of entries, from both established companies as well as newer entrants. The return of the Offshore Achievement Awards has made a significant impact on the industry calendar.

“The entries we received this year were of an exceptionally high standard which made the selection process very difficult, however our expert judging panel is confident that the very best of the nominations have been identified and made it through to the shortlist.”

Leo Koot, managing director of main sponsor TAQA Bratani, said: “There has been a fantastic response to the re-launch of the offshore achievement awards and it’s very encouraging and exciting to see so many organisations proud to share the successes of their company and people.

“It’s important to celebrate excellence and achievement in the industry and help foster talent, creativity and innovation through awards such as this.”

Scottish Enterprise also aims to support the industry in its ambitions and recognises that innovation and internationalisation are key drivers for Scottish companies to achieve their growth ambitions.

In recognition of this, Scottish Enterprise announced its continued support of the Offshore Achievement Awards by offering each finalist the opportunity to take part in an Independent Business Review provided by their Company Growth Team, followed by a fully-funded strategy workshop with the aim of identifying key growth priorities within the company. Following this, there may be potential to access SE services and supporting activities to further support these priorities.
