PetroFed Awards 2011

The PetroFed Oil & Gas Industry Awards 2011 for excellence in performance in various categories were presented by the Hon’ble Union Cabinet Minister for Petroleum & Natural Gas, Shri S. Jaipal Reddy at a well attended function at New Delhi on June 8, 2012.

Congratulating the Award winners the Hon’ble Minister termed PetroFed as ‘a unique organisation’ which represents both, the public sector and the private sector. ‘This institution needs to be strengthened and its process and presentation of awards needs to be encouraged. I shall do everything in my power to strengthen PetroFed and the sector as a whole’, stated the Hon’ble Minister while addressing the gathering.

In view of the paucity of time available with the Hon’ble Minister the formal welcome by Chairman, PetroFed& Chairman, IndianOil, Shri R. S. Butola and presentation about the Awards by Director General, PetroFed, Shri A. K. Arora were dispensed with. The Vice Chairman, PetroFed and President (Refinery Business), RIL, Shri P. Raghavendra thanked the Hon’ble Minister for encouraging the industry and sought an enabling environment & framework to promote self sufficiency in oil & gas for the country.

The scheme of Awards is open to all companies operating in India in the oil & gas sector. The evaluation is undertaken in line with pre-determined weightages assigned to various parameters fixed after due validation. Each award category must receive a prescribed minimum number of applications for giving away an award. Each award carries a trophy and a citation. The Woman Executive of the Year award also carries a cash prize of ` one lakh. The Innovator of the Year individual award has a cash component of ` two lakh while the team award has a prize of ` five lakh with each member of the team getting at least ` 50,000/-

The lessons learnt during awards evaluation every year are incorporated. The application form for each award has been carefully designed and validated to minimize subjectivity while giving benefit of additional initiatives taken. A significant contribution has been made by PetroFed knowledge partner and member company, PricewaterhouseCoopers in conceptualizing the Awards scheme and the preliminary evaluation of applications.
