Leadership and innovation in the energy industry are recognized at the Energy Intelligence Forum with our annual awards. Join your peers as we celebrate outstanding executive leadership, those at the forefront of the energy transition and emerging new talent.
Energy Intelligence has announced that Amin Nasser, President and Chief Executive Officer of Saudi Aramco, has been named as Energy Intelligence’s Energy Executive of the Year for 2020. He was chosen by a selection committee made up of top global energy industry executives, and he is the 24th winner of this highly-regarded, peer-selected honor. The award will be presented to Nasser during the inaugural Energy Intelligence Forum.
Nasser distinguished himself by stewarding Aramco through the unprecedented attacks on the Abqaiq processing plant and Khurais oil field last September. Through his leadership, Aramco was able to swiftly restore output with minimal disruption to customers, helping the company get through the industry-defining incident with flying colors.
The Energy Executive of the Year award is the international energy industry’s most prestigious award given in recognition of outstanding executive leadership in the energy sector.
Nominations for the award are solicited from over 100 of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, as they appear in Energy Intelligence’s annual TOP 100 Global NOC & IOC Rankings.
A confidential peer selection process involving current and former senior energy executives determines the final winner.
The award is traditionally presented by Energy Intelligence at the black-tie Energy Executive of the Year gala dinner, the marquee event of the Energy Intelligence Forum in London. In this extraordinary year, the award is being presented at a dedicated ceremony on day one of the Forum, to which all delegates are invited.
