Awards 2019

Oil & Gas Industry Awards Scheme

The FIPI Oil and Gas Awards have been created to recognise the leaders, innovators and pioneers in the oil and gas industry. The objective of the FIPI Oil & Gas Awards is to celebrate the industry's most outstanding achievements.

FIPI will select among applicants and reward those companies and individuals who have demonstrated an unparalleled ability to succeed, continually set standards of excellence, and who will be or are the stars of the industry.

All companies operating in India, including those who are not members of FIPI but have significant involvement in the oil & gas sector, are eligible to apply. 

This year FIPI has revamped the Awards scheme making it more objective by adopting quantitative parameters to the extent possible. The parameters for existing awards have been modified and some new categories of awards have also been introduced. New categories of awards include ‘Value Creator company of the year’, ‘Oil and Gas Retailer company of the year (with 500 or less outlets)’, ‘EPC company of the year ‘and ‘Young Achiever of the year’. The ‘Exploration and Production company of the year’ has been split into two categories viz. ‘Exploration company of the year’ and ‘Development and Production of the year’. The ‘Responsibly Growing company of the year’ and’ Environmental Sustainability company of the year’ have been merged and modified to include more sustainability related parameters. This award shall henceforth be known as ‘Sustainably Growing Corporate of the year’. Another important change made this year is the shifting the Awards function to 2nd December which coincides with the Annual day of FIPI. There are nineteen categories of awards in which the performance of oil and Gas companies will be judged.

All awards carry a trophy and a citation. The individual and team categories also carry a cash award.



The applications are evaluated by the Awards Committee comprising of experts from oil and gas industry. Evaluation by Award Committee is submitted to Jury for final verdict

The decision of the Jury for selection of a particular awardee will be final and binding.
