Finalists have been announced for this year’s Offshore Achievement Awards, which celebrate the highest-performing companies and individuals within the energy industry.

The 2013 awards, launched in October by SPE Aberdeen, received a high level of interest across each of the categories. They recognise exceptional talent and success in categories including overall company performance, commitment to safety and innovation, and individual contribution to the energy sector. TAQA Bratani is supporting the awards as main sponsor for a second successive year. Continued on page 3


This year’s OAA trophy design winner, Ewan Gray, is pictured with shortlisted fellow Robert Gordon University students Lucy Jamieson, Cara Walker and Isla Chlebowska. Ewan, from Orkney, says his design was inspired by relief maps of North Sea oilfields. The finished article will be made from a combination of wood, glass and metal. Third year students studying 3-Dimensional Design at Gray’s School of Art were set

the challenge in November by SPE Aberdeen. The competition was introduced as part of SPE Aberdeen’s successful re-launch of the awards and it has now been incorporated into the 3-Dimensional Design course to give students a real-life design brief. Ewan says: “I am honoured that my design will be presented to winners of these prestigious awards. Taking part in the project has given me a working example of how I can use my skills when I leave university and I am grateful to SPE Aberdeen for the opportunity to build my portfolio.”
