ADIPEC Awards regional select jury reveals

Winners to be Named at Prestigious Gala Dinner and Ceremony on ADIPEC Opening Day

The Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC), the world’s most influential event for the oil and gas industry, has announced the 31 shortlisted entries for the 2016 edition of the ADIPEC Awards.

The distinguished and internationally coveted accolades celebrate achievement in energy, and recognise the leading companies, individuals, initiatives, projects, and technologies that have demonstrated excellence across eight categories that are essential to industry development.

Mr Abdul Munim Saif Al Kindy, Director of Exploration, Development and Production at ADNOC, and ADIPEC 2016 Awards Chairman, said: “Today’s new energy landscape and dynamic business climate makes knowledge dissemination fundamental to progress in the petroleum industry.

“Technology and innovation play a central role in this drive towards operational excellence, and an organisation’s future ultimately depends upon its ability to deploy effective strategies and solutions that address today’s complex business challenges,” Mr Al Kindy added.

Nominees were shortlisted after a meticulous assessment by the Regional Select Jury, composed of experts from across the oil and gas industry. Winners and runners-up will be announced at the ADIPEC Awards Gala Dinner, hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), at The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, on Monday, 7 November 2016.

“The ADIPEC Awards not only offer companies and individuals, who have demonstrated success, an opportunity to be recognised, but also gives those looking to enhance their operations access to proven examples of industry best practice,” said Jean-Philippe Cossé, Vice President – Energy at dmg events.
