Award Aims To Inspire Next Generation of HSE Leaders

Nominations are now open for the 2020 IOGP Outstanding Young Professional Award, sponsored by the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) in association with the biennial SPE International Conference and Exhibition on Health, Safety, Environment, and Sustainability.

“Our industry needs competent and confident leaders for decades to come,” said Gordon Ballard, executive director of IOGP. “This award aims to inspire the next generation. We want to recognize their efforts to promote safe, responsible and sustainable exploration and production operations.”

Now in its third year, the award celebrates the achievements of an individual with fewer than 10 years of professional exploration and production experience. The winner must demonstrate professional accomplishments and evidence of outstanding talent, dedication, and leadership working in at least one aspect of health, safety, security, the environment, sustainability, or social responsibility.

IOGP is looking to senior members of the industry to nominate young professionals who meet the award criteria.  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 International Conference and Exhibition on Health, Safety, Environment, and Sustainability in Bogotá, Colombia, 17–19 March 2020.
