IPTC Excellence in Project Integration Award

IPTC Excellence in Project Integration Award

As the upstream oil and gas industry moves towards increasingly complex and capital intensive projects, we must challenge our conventional practices. It is critical that lessons are shared from successfully integrated projects that embody excellence. The IPTC committees and sponsoring societies believe in highlighting projects above USD 500 million that have demonstrated distinction throughout the entire exploration and production value chain.

The IPTC Excellence in Project Integration Award is given to a project that adds value to the industry and exemplified strong teamwork, solid geoscience knowledge, reservoir and production engineering acumen, determined and watchful construction, and outstanding facilities engineering practices. Equally important, a successful project requires a pervasive culture of HSE, and a positive impact on the communities it affects. 

Nomination Deadline: 3 July 2020
