SPE To Relaunch Offshore Achievement Awards In 2012

Thursday, September 8, 2011      
  • The Society of Petroleum Engineers Aberdeen section is re-launching Offshore Achievement Awards
  • The awards are open to entries from UK-registered companies and, reflecting the growing reach of the North Sea Industry, the OAAs will be open to offshore renewables companies as well as the traditional oil & gas players

The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen section is building upon the established high profile of the Scottish Offshore Achievement Awards awards by re-launching the Offshore Achievement Awards. The awards have a 25-year history of celebrating outstanding success in the oil & gas industry.

The awards are open to entries from UK-registered companies and, reflecting the growing reach of the North Sea Industry, the OAAs will be open to offshore renewables companies as well as the traditional oil & gas players.

SPE chairman Masud Javaid, of Total E&P UK, said: "We are confident that the Offshore Achievement Awards will quickly be re-established as the premier forum to celebrate the very best of the whole of the offshore energy industry as it continues to evolve and develop to overcome the challenges of the future.

"There has been a very positive reaction from the energy industry to the re-launch, with high levels of interest in sponsoring the various awards. We are delighted to welcome Taqa Bratani as the main sponsor and would like to thank them for their support."

As well as recognising exceptional business growth, the awards will focus on particular innovations, safety breakthroughs and collaborative efforts contributing to ensure the UK remains at the forefront of the international energy scene. Individual success will also be highlighted through the Rising Star and Lifetime Achievement Awards.

Leo Koot, Taqa Bratani managing director, said: "The Offshore Achievement Awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise and celebrate the successes of the companies, organisations and people who work so hard to ensure the energy sector continues to thrive on a global scale.

Celebrating excellence and achievement plays a vital part in TAQA's own philosophy and therefore we are pleased to be supporting the re-launch of these important awards, highlighting the best in the industry."

The awards, previously organised by Scottish Enterprise, will be open for entries in October, with judging taking place early in the New Year. The Black Tie awards ceremony is scheduled to take place on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at the Ardoe House Hotel, Aberdeen.
