Oil & Gas Awards Judges Comments

“An impressive submission from an impressive operator. BHP have addressed the criteria thoroughly and provided, where applicable, relevant figures to support their statements of achievement. They have clearly profiled their expertise in the two regions they have submitted for and for this reason have scored well. BHP, it seems, are well placed to continue the development of their increasing North American shale oil and gas portfolio.”

“Established themselves as a significant shale operator with a keen eye on safety and environmental stewardship. Thoroughly responded to the elements requested, providing specific safety incident rates.”
