Petrofac employees shortlisted for Offshore Achievement Awards

Two Petrofac employees have been shortlisted as finalists in the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ (SPE) 2017 Offshore Achievement Awards (OAA) in Aberdeen.

Bob Banks, Mechanical Maintenance Technician, and Sam Lisney, Mechanical Engineer, have both been shortlisted in the ’Above and Beyond’ category.

The Above and Beyond award recognises the workplace contribution made by an employee which has brought significant improvements to their workplace, the wider industry or community. Bob was nominated for his work to improve safety in the North Sea through the commercialisation of safety innovations; and Sam for his involvement with STEMnet, the Woking Mentoring Scheme and Petrofac’s Graduate Programme.

Additionally, Sam is one of six nominees selected to progress to the interview stage in the Young Professionals category - those nominees will then be narrowed down to three. This award recognises the professional capability and the wider contribution made to the offshore industry by a person aged 35 or younger.

The SPE OAA is the biggest and longest established industry awards for the UK offshore energy sector, covering all aspects from supply to upstream operations and offshore renewables. For over thirty years, the awards have been celebrating and encouraging innovation and collaboration in the North Sea.

Well-deserved congratulations to both Bob and Sam for being recognised amongst the best and brightest in the industry. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 23 March at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre
