p>The shortlist for this year's Offshore Achievement Awards was announced today {Monday 13 January, 2014}, and recognises some of the very best talent and successes from across the UK offshore industry.

The awards, organised and hosted by the Society of Petroleum Engineers Aberdeen Section with the support of principal sponsor TAQA, celebrate exceptional performance across a range of categories including safety innovations, technology breakthroughs and company successes.

"The awards showcase examples of true innovation and hard work, and present a superb opportunity for companies and individuals to be recognised by their peers. SPE Aberdeen hopes to inspire and encourage others to take a creative approach to their work in the offshore industry and to stand up and be recognised by telling their story."
