The search is on for industry’s brightest stars as Offshore Energies UK (OEUK) invites nominations for its 2023 annual award ceremony, sponsored by Shell U.K. Limited

As host of the event at P&J Live in Aberdeen on Thursday November 30, OEUK will be celebrating the outstanding achievements of businesses and individuals across the offshore energy sector.

A trio of new categories has been added to this year’s roster of award categories. The first is for an Outstanding Contribution to Energy Decarbonisation, which recognises a company that is leading the way in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and driving progress in delivering the UK’s climate change target.

A second award is for an Outstanding Contribution to Energy Security. This will be presented to the company that has had the greatest impact on ensuring the UK’s security of supply in either oil and gas or renewable energies. It will recognise the company that has most effectively demonstrated exceptional leadership, innovation, and measurable outcomes in addressing challenges including energy supply, diversification, efficiency, and sustainability.

Also new for 2023, is the Neighbour of the Year category, which focuses on recognising companies that exemplify exceptional corporate social responsibility and community engagement.

David Whitehouse, Chief Executive OEUK, said:
 “Our awards give us a great opportunity to recognise the brilliant skilled people and companies working tirelessly to produce the energy that powers our homes, transport and industry.
