D CEO Presents

Oil and Gas Awards


D CEO is honoring the CEOs, CFOs, innovators, and private equity leaders who’ve made Texas a national and international center for energy activity and finance. Awards will celebrate leaders in the upstream, midstream, services (including technology companies), and finance sectors. We’ll also present Rising Star and Lifetime Achievement awards. The program is open to industry players from East Texas to the Permian Basin, as long as there is a strong North Texas tie.

All finalists will be recognized in the November issue of D CEO and at a special awards presentation in late October.
