Young professionals (YPs) are making important contributions to all aspects of the oil and gas industry. We see such star performers in our professional and social interactions: among our coworkers, our alumni groups, and employees.

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

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?

  • Identify YPs who are doing outstanding work.
  • Complete a 3-part, 15-minute nomination highlighting a YP whose work is having a positive impact on the process, technology, industry, community, or society, along with a brief description of the work they do and why you would like to nominate them.
  • 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.
  • To avoid any perception of unfairness, members of the TWA Editorial Board are excluded from the nominations.

What Is the Selection Process?

The TWA Editorial Board will assess the submissions, evaluate the quality of the work involved, and select a final list of nominees. The selected candidates will be published on the TWA website as "TWA Energy Influencers 2024," with their bios and highlights of their outstanding work.

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 will highlight 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.

We look forward to receiving your support and nominations.
