The Winners Circle
E&P magazine proudly presents the winners of the prestigious 2016 Special Meritorious Awards for Engineering Innovation. An independent team of experts judged the competition and included engineers and engineering managers from operating and consulting companies worldwide. They judged entries only in their areas of specialization. Judges had no business interest in the companies or categories they judged.
The winners spanned a broad range of disciplines and addressed a number of problems that posed roadblocks to efficient operations. The resulting technological advances opened new and better avenues to the challenging process of finding and producing hydrocarbons worldwide.
