After months of meticulous scrutiny and following intense discussions and deliberations with our judges at the jury meet this week, the editorial team has now decided upon the finalists for the 7th annual Oil & Gas Middle East and Refining & Petrochemicals Middle East Awards 2016.

Much like every Awards season, our team this year has been overwhelmed with nominations for every category, with ‘Technical Innovation of the Year’ and ‘Young Oil & Gas Professional of the Year’ proving to be two of the most popular categories.

Another highlight of this year’s Awards campaign has been the focus on the downstream industry, with the newly introduced ‘Downstream Project of the Year’ winning a considerable number of entries.
