The SPE Aberdeen Offshore Achievement Awards (OAA) is the biggest and longest established oil, gas and renewables industry awards for the UK offshore energy sector, covering all aspects from supply to upstream operations and offshore renewables.
The 2020 Ceremony will take place at P&J Live on Thursday 19 March 2020.
The 34th annual Offshore Achievement Awards, supported by principal sponsor TAQA, will once again commemorate all that is great about the offshore oil and gas and renewables industries, celebrating business growth and success, highlighting individual achievement and rewarding revolutionary technologies.
New category ‘Energy Transition for Future Generations’ has been introduced this year as a result of the UK Government’s target to reach net zero emissions by 2050 and the Scottish Government’s ambition to reach the same target by 2045. The award will recognise the progress already being made by industry technology developers, service providers and operators.Meanwhile the ‘Internationalisation’ accolade replaces ‘Export Achievement’, a change which means as well as those exporting products and services, companies who are increasing their physical global footprint and making inroads to new regions are also now eligible.
The OAAs remain a not-for-profit event, with any surplus generated from sponsorship and table sales directly invested back into events and initiatives organised by SPE Aberdeen to promote STEM subjects and support future generations. Activities supported by the SPE Aberdeen Section include student bursaries, CV workshops, TechFest and NASA in Aberdeen.Supporting this strong focus on promoting STEM subjects and sharing SPE’s enthusiasm to uncover the offshore industry’s highlights from the last 12 months is principal sponsor TAQA.
Asset Manager at TAQA and member of the OAA Organising Committee, Stuart McIntosh said: “TAQA is proud to have supported the OAAs since its relaunch by SPE Aberdeen in 2011. The ongoing success of these awards and the importance of them in highlighting and celebrating outstanding work, is key to why we continue to support the OAAs.
“The oil and gas and renewables industries both play a huge part in the energy transition and I am particularly looking forward to hearing how companies are tackling this, as we continue to ensure the future of our industry and provide great opportunities for the next generation.”
