OGUK Awards Return to Aberdeen

OGUK Awards Return to Aberdeen
The OGUK Awards are returning to P&J Live in Aberdeen on December 8.

Industry body Oil & Gas UK (OGUK) has revealed that its yearly awards show is returning to P&J Live in Aberdeen on December 8, following a first ever digital awards show in 2020.

The awards, which seek to recognize and celebrate the achievements of businesses and individuals across several categories, will also be live streamed for anyone unable to attend, OGUK highlighted. Last year’s event was held digitally for the first time ever in response to the pandemic.

“We are delighted to welcome you back to the P&J Live in Aberdeen to celebrate the best and brightest of the industry,” OGUK said in an organization statement.

“If you can't make the trip to Aberdeen, do not fret, we will be live streaming the ceremony to your office, living room, garden shed, or wherever you might be,” the organization added.
