22 September 2022

Innovators and champions from across the UK’s offshore energy sector have been revealed today (Thursday, September 22) as the shortlist for this year’s prestigious OEUK Awards, sponsored by Shell UK Limited, was revealed.

A total of 24 entrants have been shortlisted after an expert panel considered over 70 nominees for eight different award categories. The finalists represent those who have made an extraordinary impact on the industry in the past year.

The annual ceremony celebrates the outstanding achievements of businesses and individuals across the sector and will take place on Thursday, December 8, at P&J Live in Aberdeen.

This year the awards were revamped with the announcement of four new categories, including the Early Career Professional of the Year Award, People and Culture Award, as well as Operator of the Year and Supply Chain Company of the Year. Those interested can also book their place at the event here.

OEUK also announced finalists for its pivotal Offshore Decommissioning Conference Gala Dinner to be held on Tuesday, November 22. The finalists announced for the Award for Excellence in Decommissioning are EnQuest, TAQA and Well-Safe Solutions.

 Commenting on the announcements, OEUK Acting CEO Mike Tholen, said: 

“From an impressive list of submissions, these finalists are a real reflection of the great talent and expertise of our energy communities – those that personify the North Sea innovation this industry has become known for.

 “I am delighted to see this recognition for their accomplishments in keeping the UK’s lights on, our hospitals running, and transport systems going – all while really driving industry toward its net zero goals and transitioning the UK towards a sustainable future.

“Both events are a great opportunity to celebrate the key role our companies and individuals are playing, and continue to play, across the offshore energy sector and we look forward to welcoming guests to celebrate the industry’s achievements later this year.”
