The Council Awards program represents a global benchmark of excellence for those working in our industry. The Awards dinner has been a complete sell-out for the previous five years and over 800 executives will attend again this December, to join in the festivities and celebrations.
The Council Awards program honours and recognises those in our industry, who have created companies, been at the heart of frontier plays and some of the world’s largest discoveries. These people and their businesses have grown economies, created employment and encouraged thousands.
Hundreds of judges take part in our selection process each year. The process remains 100% independent, impartial and with no payment by any organisation or outside individual. The decisions made by our global and regional judging panels are final. The judges can withhold the right to give awards in categories where the required standard has not been met (this having only happened once previously).

On the 12th of October our esteemed Judging Committee met to review and shortlist the nominations submitted by the Oil & Gas Council network for the 2018 Awards of Excellence. The long lunch at the Bleeding Heart in Farringdon involved some excellent food, passionate discussion and serious deliberation. Our Judges will be voting on the Awards Recipients in the next two weeks and are looking forward to joining the 2018 Awards of Excellence Dinner.
