During a special ceremony to mark the occasion in Houston, DP founder Howard Shatto characterised Steven as an active coach and mentor to industry professionals. He also praised Steven for his ability to empathise with contrasting industry opinions, and turn differing views into pragmatic technical solutions that benefit the sector.

Commenting on his receipt of the Award, Steven said: “It is a great honour to have been recognised for my work in dynamic positioning. As the oil and gas industry increases its activity in deepwater environments, it is crucial that operators are able to rely on safe and reliable DP systems."
