Since 2010, the annual awards event hosted by Oil & Gas Middle East and Refining & Petrochemicals Middle East has featured categories across the oil and gas value chain. But this year the awards are bigger than ever with a rebrand to the Middle East Energy Awards, which for the first time includes renewable and alternative energy, through sister publication Utilities Middle East.
With 16 categories, up from 10 in the 2018 edition of the awards, there is more room than ever to celebrate the wide scope of achievements from the individuals and organisations striving to innovate and change the energy sector.
