2018 Oil & Gas Middle East and Refining & Petrochemicals Middle East Awards nomination deadline extended till 5th August
We are happy to announce an extension of the deadline to submit the nominations for the 9th Oil & Gas Middle East and Refining & Petrochemicals Middle East Awards till 5 August 2018.
The Middle East energy industry professionals have responded to the 9th Oil & Gas Middle East and Refining & Petrochemicals Middle East Awards with overwhelming enthusiasm.
Nominations for the ten categories this year started trickling in ever since we opened the gates on 1 April this year, and started pouring in with every passing week. We have received a good number of nominations for each of the categories, indicating the aspirations of the energy sector players to be rewarded for their stellar performance.
Recognising many requests that the 2018 awards campaign team have received from a number of upstream, midstream and downstream entities recently, asking for more time to put together entries and be considered for their performance, we are happy to announce an extension of the deadline to submit the nominations till 5 August 2018. To nominate for the 10 award categories, please visit www.arabianoilandgas.com/oil-gas-awards/
We recognise the fact that companies and individuals in the regional oil and gas and refining and petrochemicals sectors are having to deal with numerous tasks and commitments each day, leaving them with little time to spare for engagement with social initiatives beyond their professional arena, like the awards.
Hence the decision to extend the nomination deadline has been consciously taken by the campaign team to expand the reach and scope of the awards, and in a bid to involve an increased number of stakeholders this year. The very purpose of the awards is to shine the spotlight on the laudable work happening in every nook and corner of the upstream, midstream and downstream segments, so it is only fair on our part to bring in more players into the fold and accommodate their requests.
We are waiting for your nominations to come through, so hurry up and send in your entries soon before the extended deadline ends. Before nominating, we would advise you to take a closer look at the 10 categories this year, understand what we are looking to acknowledge in each of those categories and then carefully choose the category/ies that you wish to nominate for.
The ten award categories this year are: (i) CSR Initiative of the Year; (ii) Downstream Project of the Year; (iii) HSE Initiative of the Year; (iv) Logistics Service Provider of the Year; (v) Oil & Gas Woman of the Year; (vi) Oilfield Services Company of the Year; (vii) Operational Excellence Strategy of the Year; (viii) Technical Innovation of the Year; (ix) Training Initiative/Programme of the Year; and (x) Young Oil & Gas Professional of the Year.
The winners and highly commended nominations for this year’s awards will be announced on 22 August. The awards ceremony is slated for 12 September 2018.
As announced earlier, the venue for the 9th Oil & Gas Middle East and Refining & Petrochemicals Middle East Awards would be the Buddha-Bar, Grosvenor House, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
