D CEO Presents

The Energy Awards

Honoring excellence and innovation in oil, gas, and renewable energy, from North Texas to the Permian Basin.

Now in its sixth year, D CEO is proud to honor outstanding leaders in oil and gas, energy finance, and renewables that continue to innovate and propel the industry forward.
