As a result of these achievements, and award, Andrew Sorrie has been awarded a place at the Scottish Enterprise Oil & Gas Future Industry Leaders Programme, designed to bring together the brightest and best from across the industry to learn the new leadership behaviours needed for the future of the industry in Scotland.

Oil & Gas UK’s chief executive, Deirdre Michie, highlighted the key role supply chains play in helping the industry tackle tough business conditions. She also outlined the range of tools the trade association has developed to promote cross-industry learning including the Rapid Efficiency Exchange and measures the trade association has introduced such as the Industry Behaviours Charter designed to encourage companies to commit to working effectively, efficiently and co-operatively to the greater benefit of the UK oil and gas industry.
