ExxonMobil Announces Power Play Awards Highlighting Women in LNG

Wednesday, April 3, 2019

What started as a series of ExxonMobil networking events promoting diversity in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry, has now grown into an awards program. This is designed to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of remarkable women and the men who uphold the importance of supporting and empowering them in the industry.

The key objectives behind the awards are to shine a light on the newcomers and smaller players in the LNG value chain, in particular, encouraging nominations from resource holders, buyers, partners and FSRU providers. We invite all players in the LNG business to submit nominations for these awards, which will open on April 8th.

The three award categories are:

  • The Rising Star – presented to an outstanding female professional under the age of 35
  • The Vanguard – given to a male or female professional who displays outstanding leadership
  • The Rainmaker – awarded to a female professional who has delivered exceptional value and business results.

Anyone is welcome to submit a nomination, but all nominees must be employed within the LNG value chain. Award nominations must be submitted by July 15, 2019. A panel of six judges will determine three finalists for each of the award categories. Once finalists are announced, the LNG community will have the opportunity to vote on their chosen candidates. Winners for each category will be determined by a combination of the final judges’ scores and community votes.

Presented by ExxonMobil, the first-ever Power Play Awards will be awarded at the Gastech Exhibition and Conference 2019 on September 18, 2019.
