Aberdeen-based global energy services company LR Senergy has been recognised for its role in a consortium working to help developing and emerging nations improve the efficiency of their oil, gas and renewables’ industries.

LR Senergy received the Best Oil & Gas Services Award at the 2014 African Achievement Awards Scotland for the firm’s role in the Ethical Energy Consortium (EEC) that is encouraging energy extraction and regulatory best practise. 

In forming the consortium, LR Senergy joined forces with the United Nations Association Scotland, organisational transformational management specialist, Miascape, and the Adam Smith International advisory firm.

The consortium’s over-arching goal is to deliver a framework for ethical and inclusive energy development for developing and emerging Resource Nations. As part of this, the EEC will help to produce deliverable strategies and work to minimise detrimental impact on the environment and ecology. The EEC also assists in the creation, design, implementation and delivery of ‘best practice’ energy projects.

 On receiving the award in Glasgow, Ian Williamson, commercial vice-president, LR Senergy, said: “What we look to do with the EEC, is to improve technical, safety and environmental standards, the quality of decisions and regulation in government organisations, and the capacity of those organisations to grow and become more self-sufficient.

“We are striving to introduce a best practice model based on good governance, technical expertise, innovative commercial arrangements, and insightful transformation management. This in turn helps investors, the host nations and their citizens, while minimising the environmental impact.”
