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

“The sheer quality and variety of entries we have received this year reflects everything that is great about our industry, particularly our ability to adapt to a volatile economic environment. It’s clear that service companies have truly risen to the challenge, providing operators with some of the world’s most advanced technology whilst remaining as cost effective as possible. 
“As ever, our esteemed panel of industry experts have spent a significant amount of time judging each entry before selecting the strongest contenders. I would like to congratulate all those who have been shortlisted for the 2017 awards, and I look forward to celebrating the winners at the ceremony in March.”

Donald Taylor, acting managing director for TAQA Europe said: 

“It is reassuring to see so many companies and individuals taking the time to share their success stories and enter into the awards this year.  The quality of the entries, particularly those shortlisted,  demonstrates how much the industry is still driving forward, finding innovative solutions and efficiencies against a persistently challenging background.”

The winners will be announced at a black tie ceremony on Thursday the 23rd of March at the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre. To book your place at the ceremony, visit our tickets page for more information.
