Oil & Gas UK announced Thursday that it has launched a new category for the 2015 Oil & Gas UK Awards, which will be held at Aberdeen’s Exhibition and Conference Centre on November 5, 2015.

The new Oil and Gas Authority MER UK Award will recognize companies whose “cooperative approach and positive behaviours have helped to maximize the economic recovery of oil and gas from the UK Continental Shelf”, according to an Oil & Gas UK statement. The MER UK Award joins the scheme’s five other award categories, which comprise the Award for Invesment in People, the Award for Business Innovation, the Award for Mentor of the Year, the Award for Apprentice of the Year and the Award for Graduate of the Year. Nominations for the new MER UK award close on September 2, 2015 and nominations for all other categories close on August 14, 2015.

Oil & Gas UK Chief Executive Deirdre Michie said in an organization statement:

"I’m delighted to announce this award, which recognizes the importance of addressing our current challenges. This latest addition to our awards line-up reflects one of the key challenges facing industry today. Industry as a whole is putting a great deal of effort into improving its performance and I look forward to hearing just some of those examples of excellence on the night."
