Grant Finnigan, Apprentice Assembly Technician with Swagelok Scotland has been announced as an industry champion, as the leading representative body of the offshore oil and gas industry revealed (Monday 13th September) its shortlist for this year's prestigious OGUK Awards, sponsored by Shell U.K. Limited.
Grant has made it through to the finals after being nominated for Apprentice of the Year.
A total of 27 entrants have been shortlisted after an expert panel considered over 90 nominees for the eight award categories.
The event, considered the highlight of industry's social calendar, will be taking place both virtually via live stream and physically on Wednesday 8th December at P&J Live in Aberdeen. Interested parties can book their place at the highly anticipated black-tie event here.
Commenting on the announcement, OGUK CEO Deirdre Michie OBE said:
"This shortlist is a real reflection of the great talent and expertise of our energy communities - those that personify the North Sea grit and innovation this industry is known for.
I am delighted to see this recognition for their accomplishments; keeping the UK's lights on, hospitals running, and transport going, all while really driving industry toward its net zero goals and transitioning the UK towards a sustainable future."
Award finalist Grant Finnigan commented:
"I was thrilled that Swagelok Scotland nominated me for the Apprentice of the Year award. Being selected as a finalist is a fantastic achievement in my journey as an apprentice. I would like to thank Swagelok Scotland and OGUK for the opportunity and wish all finalists the best of luck."
