"I am absolutely delighted to be only the second woman to win the Significant Contribution Award and I look forward to hearing of other female recipients in the coming years as we look to the future of our industry. Piper Alpha changed the world for those working in O&G. We that continue to work in the industry must, and I emphasise must, change the environment and transition to leave a significant legacy built around new energy innovation."
