The Oil & Gas Middle East & Refining & Petrochemicals Middle East (RPME) Awards were first held in 2010 to create a suitable platform to celebrate the massive accomplishments and achievements being carried out in the upstream and downstream communities in the region. In the seven years of the awards programme honouring these achievements, the event has grown to become the definitive awards programme and a must-attend networking occasion for senior executives in the industry.
