SPE Aberdeen Offshore Achievement Awards 2015

Relaunched by Mearns & Gill in 2012, the Offshore Achievement Awards recognises excellence in the industry, both from companies and individuals working in the offshore sector.

Mearns & Gill has managed the awards on behalf of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen Section for the past 4 years, transforming it to a highly successful event, making an increased income year on year.

As a not-for-profit organisation, the more funds raised from ticket sales and sponsorship fees, means more income for SPE Aberdeen to invest in various initiatives to help inspire the next generation.

The 2015 event proved to be the most challenging, yet most successful. With marketing and entertainment budgets being cut by many of the major operators and service companies, it was a challenge to sell sponsorship and tickets. However, by taking a different approach and contacting companies who were new to the market, or their main business stream was not Oil & Gas, we were able to meet, and surpass, our sponsorship target.

Refreshing the format, television personality and STEM ambassador Rachel Riley was a big hit as our host for the evening and leading UK magician Pete Firman provided top class entertainment.

Mearns & Gill were appointed as event managers, with a clear remit to reinvigorate the event, raise the profile of the SPE Aberdeen Section in the oil and gas industry, and to ensure that the event became profitable. The team has delivered spectacularly on all these objectives. SPE is delighted with the results, which quite simply couldn't have been achieved without the outstanding performance of the team.

Each year the OAAs recognise achievements in the industry, from new technologies to individuals making significant contributions to their companies and beyond. From finalists who have been in the industry for years to those just starting out, it is exciting to see the innovation and collaboration still taking place in the oil and gas sector and we look forward to seeing who will make the shortlist in the years to come.
