On the 9th of October 2014 Oliver Kinross will be hosting the 2nd Annual Africa Oil & Gas Awards. The awards are taking place at the world class Sandton Convention Centre as part of the Africa Oil & Gas Expo.
The awards ceremony is an initiative of Oliver Kinross to reward achievements made by African and International companies operating across Africa. Oliver Kinross has built a very strong reputation in the last six years establishing itself as a global name in oil & gas through providing high level workshops, conferences and unique networking opportunities across the world.
The first edition of the Africa Oil & Gas Awards saw operating companies such as Tullow, OMV and Oando Plc pick up awards for demonstrating continued excellence in HSE, Local Content and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). There were 8 awards for the solutions and services industry. Last year’s winners included Halliburton, Maersk Drilling, GNPC-Technip and Drillmec.
The awards are judged by a prestigious panel consisting of oil & gas operators and government representatives. Amongst those on the panel last year were Anadarko, Afren, Marathon oil, NOC Kenya as well as ministerial representatives from Namibia, South Africa and Ethiopia. The judges for 2014 will be reviewing submissions and giving their individual verdict on 14 awards. This year there are 10 award categories for solutions and service providers and 4 awards for oil & gas operators.
The awards ceremony is part of the Africa Oil & Gas Expo which is taking place on the 9th & 10th of October in the world class Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.
