OTL Africa has held a dinner and award night to conclude its Downstream Conference 2016 which kicked off three days ago.
The event incorporates awards of excellence and special recognition, with key players in the industry fully represented, expanding the networking range in a glamorous atmosphere.
Since it came into existence 10 years ago, it has become a constant on the diaries of the key players on the continent and beyond. It is the high point of the downstream industry calendar and the climax of the OTL Africa week.
The OTL Award celebrates some of their major sponsors and also celebrates excellence, innovation and achievement in downstream petroleum business, recognizing true value added efforts being made by organisations and persons in oil and gas business.
Awards were also given in the oil marketing categories like Best Consumer Service Retail, Best Marked Lubricant, Best Branded Lubricant and Oil Marketer of the Year.
The big one at the OTL Award is the Lifetime Achievement Awards. It went to three distinguished Nigerians; CEO, Oando Plc, Wale Tinubu; Chairman, WABECO Petroleum Ltd, Chief Silverius Okoli, and Chairman, Conoil Plc, Chief Mike Adenuga, who was ably represented.
The conference traditionally sets agenda for engagement by parties in business, policy, industry and operations.
Participants largely described the Downstream 10th anniversary annual social gathering as largely successful and with the success recorded this year, the players in oil trading and logistics say they look forward to another year to celebrate.
