Now in its 48th year, the Special Meritorious Awards for Engineering Innovation (MEA) is the industry’s most established and widely respected engineering awards program. Each year, the world’s best new tools and techniques for finding, developing and producing hydrocarbons are recognized.
MEA entries are judged on their game-changing significance, both technically and economically. Judges include respected professionals with engineering and technical backgrounds who have extensive knowledge of the categories they are judging.
We invite you to enter the 2018 awards competition – entry is FREE!
Deadline is January 31, 2018
