Following its launch during last month’s Intelligent Energy event, entries have opened today for the SPE Offshore Achievement Awards 2017.

With the support of principal sponsor TAQA, the prestigious awards will celebrate 31 years of technology innovation, safety and exceptional individual and company performance in the oil and gas, and renewables sector.

Ian Phillips, chief executive of the Oil and Gas Innovation Centre, SPE Aberdeen Chairman and board member responsible for the OAAs, said: 

“Year after year some of the greatest success stories from the industry are heard at the OAAs, and it’s important that we continue to celebrate all that is great in our sector.  Recognition at the OAAs has acted as a springboard for growth for many companies, and testament to this is the number of previous winners who have come forward to tell us about their recent successes, despite the current industry climate.
“The awards continue to grow each year, and the 2016 awards marked a record number of entries and attendees. We look forward to uncovering more success stories and celebrating those at the ceremony in 2017.”

The 2016 ceremony saw more than 500 industry professionals in attendance. Among the winners, Technology Director of upstream technology company Well-SENSE, Dan Purkis, was recognised for his Significant Contribution to the offshore industry, whilst Hayleigh Pearson, Graduate Process Engineer at engineering solutions provider, Costain, was presented with the Young Professional accolade.

Donald Taylor, Operations Director at TAQA, said: 

“Now more than ever, individuals and companies in our industry are achieving great things and looking at new ways to tackle problems and find innovative solutions.  This is what will maintain our industry well into the future so it is vital that we foster this enthusiasm and recognise and celebrate the hard work that is happening right now.”

Entries from UK-registered companies operating within the renewables, or the oil and gas industry, are now open.

The awards are open for entries until Wednesday 30 November 2016, with the black tie ceremony taking place at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on Thursday 23 March, 2017. 

The OAA Organising Committee would like to wish all entrants the best of luck, and we look forward to seeing you at the ceremony!
