Nominations Are Open for TWA Energy Influencers 2022

To turn the spotlight on YPs' contributions to the industry, SPE's The Way Ahead Editorial Committee is accepting nominations for "TWA Energy Influencers 2022: Young Professionals Who ENERGIZE Our Industry.”


With the progression of the big crew change, young professionals (YPs) are increasingly making important contributions to the industry. We see such star performers in our professional and social interactions: among our coworkers, our alumni groups, friend’s friends, and employees.

To turn the spotlight on YPs' contributions to the industry, the TWA Editorial Committee launched a new concept under the TWA banner in 2020 called the "TWA Energy Influencers: Young Professionals Who ENERGIZE Our Industry.”

After two successful editions in 2020 and 2021 showcasing outstanding young professionals in the oil and gas industry, the nomination process for the TWA Energy Influencers 2022 is now open.

Who Are We Searching for?

YPs in the oil and gas industry (under the age of 35) who have displayed excellence and integrity, or demonstrated innovation, social responsibility, sustainability, and passion for safety. This list is not exhaustive.

What Is the Nomination Process?

  1. Identify YPs who are doing outstanding work.
  2. Complete a three-part, 15-minute, nomination form to nominate a YP whose work is having a positive impact on a process or technology, the industry, community, or society, along with a brief description of the work they do and why you would like to nominate them.
  3. You can nominate a friend, colleague, client, or employee. Consider nominating individuals whose accomplishments have yet to be publicly acknowledged. Nominees should be SPE members and self-nominations are not accepted.
  4. To avoid any perception of unfairness, members of the TWA Editorial Committee are excluded from the nominations.

What Is the Selection Process?

The TWA Editorial Committee will assess the submissions, evaluate the quality of the work involved, and select a final list of nominees. The selected list of candidates will be published on the TWA website as "TWA Energy Influencers 2022," with the bio of the candidates and highlights of their outstanding work. We aim to release the final list in Q2 2022.

One of the best ways to create momentum, increase influence, and articulate our industry’s role in the society is by sharing success stories. Through this initiative, we intend to drum up the good work YPs do to inspire others, in the form of a list of summaries of selected YPs, their work, and the impact it has on the industry, society, and the environment.
