Aberdeen-headquartered Enpro Subsea has won the Innovation Award at the Press and Journal Gold Awards 2017.
The subsea intervention specialist company was recognised for its patented flow access module (FAM) technology which was a contributing factor to a major operator in the Gulf of Mexico achieving first oil in just 11 months – a record time for the operating company and one month ahead of schedule.
The judges also heard how the company’s in-house team of production optimisation experts are supporting early adopters of its FAM systems in West Africa, which was brought to market just 18 months ago.
The P&J; Gold Awards black-tie event is considered a key highlight in the social calendar for celebrating leading companies and influencers in the energy industry. Now in its third year, the evening was hosted by BBC breakfast reporter and TV presenter Steph McGovern for the second time and saw around 280 people in attendance.
Enpro Subsea marketing director, Tom Bryce, said: “It is an honour to have our hard work recognised by the judging panel and to be chosen to win this innovation award. We were in a shortlist with some of the most highly-respected businesses in the industry so it is a big complement to our team which works tirelessly to produce great results for our clients with our innovative subsea architecture.
“It’s been a very successful period for Enpro. We are a young company and seeing our patented FAM technology, which is an ‘off the tree’ multi services modular hub, being deployed and providing clients the efficiencies we know it can, has made us all very proud.”
This is the company’s third accolade in 2017. Enpro managing director, Ian Donald, was recognised at this year’s Subsea UK Awards for his outstanding contribution to the sector, and the business also collected the Great Small Company Award at the Offshore Achievement Awards in March.
