Oil & Gas Awards, a London-based group that plans a series of award events around the United States and Canada, named 67 finalists for its Southwest region. The firm says its programs "promote and celebrate the positive contributions made by organizations in the upstream and midstream sectors of the oil and gas industry." Its Southwest region awards presentation is scheduled for Oct. 22 at the Sheraton Hotel and Spa in downtown Fort Worth. It plans similar programs in six other North American regions.
Nominees either based in the Tarrant County area or with a strong local presence include Atlas Resources, Bosque Systems, Clear Fork Royalty, Crosstex Energy, Energy Transfer Partners, FTS International, Hearn Trucking, Legacy Reserves, Pioneer Natural Resources, Quicksilver Resources and Tokyo Gas America.
