The winners of the 2014 awards epitomise the very best of the industry - not just the expertise, dedication and far-sightedness necessary to compete effectively in today's sophisticated market, but also the clarity of purpose and flexibility essential to negotiating the pressures and challenges inherent to a global industry in uncertain times. 

The winners were presented with their awards at a black-tie event held at the Banking Hall, in the City of London, attended by their colleagues and peers from across the energy industry.
