Petroleum Club of Romania Awards: Recognizing the Oil & Gas industry achievements
As oil and gas prices have crumbled, many companies have been forced to cut spending, cease costly projects, and some of them have made announcements that they will lay off employees through 2017. But even so, the industry has found the force to move forward, waiting for the oil price recovery sooner or later.
In this volatile context, the Petroleum Club Christmas Party that took place at the Champions Sports Bar & Restaurant at JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel on December 10th, 2015, gathered the top representatives from the oil & gas industry in Romania, honouring a tradition dating back to 2002. The theme of the party was “Game Day”.
In his introductory speech, Andrew Costin, the Petroleum Club President, mentioned the most significant achievements of the Petroleum Club in 2015, and thanked the members and partners for their active support that helped the Association better represent the oil & gas industry. He also nominated the 13 new members that joined the Club in 2015: Blue Spark Energy, Steder Group Logistics, Odfjell Well Services, VTU Engineering, Bureau Veritas Romania, Energy Rav-Sim, Oil Services Ltd Eastern Europe, Frank’s International, Informenerg, Aecom Romania, Koller Maschinen- und Anlagenbau, CFRO Service, Shengli Xinda Industrial Group. Another two companies joined the Petroleum Club since the beginning of the year: Roxtec and Kerui.
The contribution of the sponsors of the Christmas Party (Expert Petroleum, Habau PPS Pipeline Systems, Schlumberger, Bureau Veritas, Air France – KLM) was also acknowledged.
Following an initiative started in 2008, Andrew Costin, the Petroleum Cub President, and Costin Neagu, the Executive Director, handed out the annual awards to the 2015 worthy winners. The “Oilman of the Year 2015” was awarded to Florin Ianul, the General Manager of CDI Oilfield Services, for his outstanding contribution to the development of this company in Romania. The Petroleum Club also acknowledged his considerable and constant support of the oil & gas industry in this country, and his leadership among his industry peers.
Honeywell was presented with the “Company of the Year 2015” award.
