New Young Professional Award aims to inspire the next generation of oil and gas professionals

The award will recognize the achievements of an individual with fewer than 10 years of professional E&P experience.

For 40 years, IOGP has promoted safe, responsible and sustainable exploration & production operations.  To maintain this momentum, the upstream industry will have to rely on future generations of leaders. In recognition of this fact – and to inspire the next generation – IOGP has launched the Outstanding Young Professional Award in association with the biennial SPE HSSE-SR International Conference.

"We have launched this award to inspire the next generation of leaders by recognizing their efforts to promote safe, responsible and sustainable exploration and production operations,” said Michael Engel-Jensen, Executive Director of IOGP.

The award will recognize the achievements of an individual with fewer than 10 years of professional E&P experience, who can demonstrate professional accomplishments and evidence of outstanding talent, dedication and leadership in at least one aspect of health, safety, security, the environment and/or social responsibility.

IOGP is looking to senior members of the oil and gas industry to nominate young professionals who meet the award criteria.

Nominations must be submitted using the official application form, by Wednesday November 4, 2015. The nominee’s CV must also be included with the nomination form. Please email with any queries.

Nominees must:

  • Be well-respected and in good standing within the community.
  • Serve as a role model for other young professionals.
  • Demonstrate noteworthy professional and personal achievement.
  • Demonstrate commitment to excellence and proven leadership.
  • Exhibit expertise, passion and the ability to inspire others.

A special awards committee will announce the winner at the SPE HSSE-SR International Conference in Stavanger, Norway, April 11-13, 2016.

The winner will receive an Outstanding Young Professional Award certificate and trophy.
