Dear Readers,

We have all heard about the big crew change for a while and, with the current demographic shift in the industry, it seems to have arrived. Young professionals (YPs) are increasingly making important contributions to the industry. We see such star performers in our professional and social interactions: among our coworkers, our alumni groups, friend’s friends, and employees.

To turn the spotlight on YPs' contributions to the industry, the TWA Editorial Committee is proposing a new concept under the TWA banner: "TWA Energy Influencers 2020: Young Professionals Who ENERGIZE Our Industry.”

Below are details on the idea and the structure of the project.

Who Are We Searching for?

YPs in the oil and gas industry (under the age of 35) who have displayed excellence and integrity, or demonstrated innovation, social responsibility, sustainability, and passion for safety. This list is not exhaustive.

What Is the Nomination Process?

  1. Identify YPs who are doing outstanding work.

  2. Complete a 3-part, 15-minute, nomination form to nominate a YP whose work is having a positive impact on the process, technology, industry, community, or society, along with a brief description of the work they do and why you would like to nominate them.

  3. You can nominate a friend, colleague, client, or employee. Consider nominating individuals whose accomplishments have yet to be publicly acknowledged. Both SPE members and nonmembers can be nominated, and self-nominations from YPs are accepted.

  4. To avoid any perception of unfairness, members of the TWA Editorial Committee are excluded from the nominations.

What Is the Selection Process?

The TWA Editorial Committee will assess the submissions, evaluate the quality of the work involved, and select a final list of nominees. The selected list of candidates will be published on the TWA website as "TWA Energy Influencers 2020," with the bio of the candidates and highlights of their outstanding work. We aim to release the final list in Q1 2020.

Why Are We Launching This Initiative?

One of the best ways to create momentum, increase influence, and articulate our industry’s role in the society is by sharing success stories. Through this initiative, we intend to drum up the good work YPs do to inspire others, in the form of a list of summaries of selected YPs, their work, and the impact it has on the industry, society, and the environment.

We look forward to receiving your support in making this initiative a success. Please click the button below to submit your nominations:

Thank you in advance for your time.
