Since the WPC was formed in 1933 it has experienced vast changes in the industry. Our 60 member countries, representing 95% of the Worlds oil and gas production, are in a unique position to witness the technical achievements that allows the petroleum industry to work with greater efficiency, at lower cost and to produce a vast range of products with a care for the environment. Whether it’s drilling deeper, using new analytical techniques, producing cleaner fuels our technical excellence awards will pick from the very best from upstream or downstream.
Our global industry is also leading the way in a number of social and environmental areas and we will showcase the best of these initiatives in our Social Responsibility Award.
Moving foreword into the new millennium we will have new technical, environmental and social challenges ahead and the WPC’s dedication to these principles is demonstrated by the following awards. By recognising partnerships between the environment, social responsibility and business, and encouraging a better understanding of the complex relationship between a clean environment, good business practice and a healthy economy, these awards, and thus their recipients, reflect the future of the industries achievement.
The objective of the WPC Excellence Awards (WPCEA) is to distinguish companies, institutions or any public or private organisation (not individuals) engaged in the oil and gas industry for promoting or operating with high excellence standards in two categories:
The judges are independent of WPC. There are two winners in each category (representing large and small business). In addition we award two highly commended awards within each category. The following criteria is taken into consideration when assessing the projects:
WPCEA on Technological Developments
