Awards of Excellence

CELEBRATING SUCCESS & EXCELLENCE

awards

There has never been a more important time to celebrate and reward outstanding achievements.

The Energy Council's Annual Awards of Excellence represents a global benchmark of excellence for those working across the upstream industry. Recognising and honouring the individuals and companies who, over the last 12 months, have been at the forefront of first-class deals, value creation, innovation, or exceptional financial and operating performance.

The Awards of Excellence also celebrates the executives who continue to change the face of the oil & gas industry, demonstrating outstanding leadership and performance.

A core social gathering in the industry’s calendar concluding the year with a bang, it’s not to be missed!
