D CEO Presents

Oil and Gas Awards

A Celebration of Innovation and Resiliency in North Texas

For a third consecutive year, D CEO is proud to honor North Texas leaders in oil and gas and energy finance. They continue to innovate and propel the industry forward, even in turbulent times.

Awards will celebrate leaders in upstream, midstream, services (including technology companies), and finance sectors. We’ll also present Rising Star and Legacy/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. The deadline for submissions is July 10, 2020.

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