Oil & Gas UK’s outstanding contribution to raising the professional standards of the industry by producing good practice guidelines has been recognised by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) at an annual awards ceremony last night (July 14) in London.
IOM3 presented the Premier Award Medal for Excellence to Oil & Gas UK in recognition of its contribution to improving the safety and efficiency of UK offshore operations by publishing more than thirty peer-reviewed guidelines for the industry.
Oil & Gas UK’s operations director, Oonagh Werngren, said: “I am delighted to receive this award on behalf of Oil & Gas UK but also all the member companies who continue to dedicate specialist resources to facilitate the development of good practice guidelines to help the industry address issues including well operations, safe mooring of vessels, cargo handling, emergency response and decommissioning activities.
“This important work demonstrates the industry’s ongoing commitment to continually review and improve the performance of all aspects of offshore operations. It shows what can be achieved through working together with the operators, contractors, service companies, government representatives and other stakeholders to strengthen the long-term health of the UK offshore oil gas industry and improve safety for the people who work in it.”
