Energy industry event returns

Published:  07 September, 2011

One of the energy industry’s best known and most respected professional organisations has announced it is to re-launch the Offshore Achievement Awards, with the support of main sponsor Taqa Bratani.

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

These prestigious 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 and 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.

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.’

The awards, previously organised by Scottish Enterprise, will open for entries in October, with judging taking place early in the New Year.
