Oil & Gas Middle East and Refining & Petrochemicals Middle East are excited to bring back the Middle East Energy Awards, where industry leaders will gather to celebrate at an afternoon awards ceremony on 30 June 2020!

The awards will recognise achievements of the entire oil and gas value chain, covering upstream, midstream, and downstream. Following the success of the last year’s ceremony, this year, we have expanded categories, which for the first time include the ‘EPC Company of the Year’ and the ‘Technology Provider of the Year’, rounding out our industry awards.

While nominees and winners for all 15 categories will be selected by the editors of the two hosting publications, we highly encourage anyone who believes they should be considered for any of the categories to contact one of the editors at the earliest opportunity, detailing the category and why they wish to be nominated (Martin Menachery:; Carla Sertin:

The awards ceremony is a great occasion to recognise the progress that the oil and gas industry has made in the past year, and to award the people, projects, and companies that stand out in the industry, but it is an equally strong opportunity to catch up with colleagues and peers in the industry, and to meet and network with industry leaders from across the value chain. The guest of honour at last year’s event was ENOC CEO Saif Humaid Al Falasi, who received the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award.

Our awards ceremony attracts decision-makers and professionals from leading oil and gas firms, including ADNOC, Saudi Aramco, Halliburton, McDermott, Sipchem, Kuwait Oil Company, ENOC, and many more! Look through some of our photos on the following page for a sneak peek into the 2019 edition of the awards.
