AGR is honoured as top talent of industry at annual OGUK Awards celebration.
The winners of the 2021 Awards were honoured during a gala dinner at P&J Live in Aberdeen as industry came together to celebrate the best and brightest talent the UK offshore oil and gas industry has to offer.
Over 900 people joined the ceremony in-person and through the livestream. A total of 27 entrants made it to the finalist stage after an expert panel considered over 90 nominees from across the sector.
The 2021 OGUK Awards, sponsored by Shell UK Ltd, aim to champion those who have made an extraordinary impact on the industry in the past year. Winners were awarded across ten different categories, ranging from excellence in decommissioning to contribution to the low carbon energy transition.
Hosted by celebrity guest and comedian Jon Culshaw, attendees also ‘live-voted’ for the coveted Audience Award to honour a person they think has performed particularly well in the past year.
AGR was awarded Excellence in Decommissioning for the recent successful management of planning and wellsite operations for Ireland’s first ever decommissioning project. In particular, decommissioning of 14 platform wells and 10 subsea wells in the Kinsale field, in the Celtic Sea.
Andrew Stannard, EVP of AGR’ Well Management for UK/Med/Africa regions commented, “We are very proud that our efforts in the field of decommissioning have been recognised by the industry peers. To have been chosen as one of two winners in this fiercely competitive category is real testament to the hard work we put in day-in-day-out and our long-standing commitment to innovation in delivering decommissioning solutions.
AGR has the ability to support our clients at all levels as they plan for decommissioning. Through early engagement and collaboration, they can rely on us to deliver an integrated, cost-efficient decommissioning service that delivers out-standing operational, safety and environmental performance.
We are thrilled to be celebrated as industry talent and the Award is an outstanding recognition to our Aberdeen-based Well Management team.”
Commenting after the event, OGUK’s chief executive Deirdre Michie said:
“Congratulations to all of our winners and nominees in achieving the recognition they deserve for the excellence they deliver!
“It is people like these who ensured that as a sector, we’ve overcome challenges and seen significant achievements this year – from volatile prices to making real change happen within the energy transition space.
“The whole community is part of the effort to make sure we can reach our net zero goals.
“It was a real pleasure to be part of such an inspiring night. We have great people that as part of this wonderful industry.”
