Press Release
Monday, January 28, 2013

Finalists for this year’s Offshore Achievement Awards have been named  {Tuesday 22 January}, in an announcement which celebrates the highest performing companies and individuals within the energy industry.


The 2013 awards, which were launched in October by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen Section, received a high level of interest across each of the categories. TAQA Bratani is supporting the awards as main sponsor for a second successive year.


The awards, which were re-launched in 2011 by SPE Aberdeen, recognise exceptional talent and success in categories including overall company performance, commitment to safety and innovation and individual contribution to the energy sector.


Ian Phillips, director of CO2Deepstore Limited and the SPE board member responsible for the organisation of the awards, said: “The re-launch of last year’s Offshore Achievement Awards was extremely successful and it was important for SPE Aberdeen, as the organisers, to continue to build upon this platform. The level of interest we received this year demonstrates that the awards are a highlight of the energy industry calendar.


“The entries we received were of a truly exceptional standard, which presented the judging panel with some very tough competition. We are confident that the best of the nominations have been selected to form the shortlist however, and look forward to celebrating the winners and the finalists at the ceremony.”


The black tie awards evening will take place on Thursday 21 March, 2013 at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre. Winners will be announced on the evening and presented with a bespoke trophy designed by Robert Gordon University student Ewan Gray.


Back by popular demand and fresh from his ‘The Story Continues….’ Tour, comedian Kevin Bridges will return to again host this year’s awards ceremony.


Leo Koot, managing director of main sponsor TAQA Bratani, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the Offshore Achievement Awards for a second year. It is of huge importance that we recognise success and high performers, but also encourage and foster a culture of innovation to ensure the long term sustainability of our industry.”
