Finalists announced for the 2015 Offshore Achievement Awards

January 12, 2015

Recognising some of the UK offshore industry’s strongest talent, the shortlist for the 2015 Offshore Achievement Awards has been announced today {Monday, 12 January 2015}.

Sponsored by TAQA in association with rigzone.com, the annual awards are organised and hosted by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen Section and recognise exceptional performance across a range of categories. The 12 awards celebrate individual achievements, company performance and significant innovations in safety and technology.

Ian Phillips, SPE Aberdeen director and chief executive of the Oil and Gas Innovation Centre, said:

"The 2015 Offshore Achievement Awards have again attracted an exceptionally high calibre of entrants and we are delighted to announce the very strong line-up of finalists this year. Once again, judges were impressed by the talent and performance demonstrated in the UK offshore industry.""These awards are a great platform for companies and individuals to gain recognition and this year, we have had more entries than ever. There was a particular increase in nominations in the Emerging Technology and Small Company categories which is extremely encouraging. It is vital to the longevity of the energy industry that new technologies are continually being developed and new, smaller players often play a key role in this innovation.""We are also pleased to announce the shortlist for this year’s new category, Outstanding Graduate Programme, and are confident that the initiatives devised by each company will inspire others to ‘grow their own’ skilled personnel"
