OPEC Awards 2018

OPEC has always recognized the important role played by scholars and journalists in increasing public awareness of the Organization’s work and emphasizing the petroleum industry’s essential contributions to the global economy.


In support of this, OPEC will once again honour individuals who have made outstanding professional contributions in these areas with the 2018 OPEC Award for Research and the OPEC Award for Journalism. The Awards will be presented by the President of the OPEC Conference at a gala event during this year’s OPEC International Seminar.


Instituted in 2004, the OPEC Award for Research is given to committed scholars who have contributed to an increased understanding of the determinants of oil market stability, and who have exhibited a critical, yet impartial, view of oil-related issues. Previous recipients include Professor Robert Mabro (2004), Oxford University fellow and former Director of the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies; Peter Odell (2006), formerly of Erasmus University in Rotterdam; Paul Stevens (2009), the University of Dundee; Oystein Noreng (2012), the BI Norwegian Business School; and Dr. Vaclav Smil (2015), Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the University of Manitoba in Canada.


The OPEC Award for Journalism is given to experienced print or broadcast journalists who engage in objective and balanced reporting of the oil market and related issues. Past recipients of the award are Dr. Walid Khadduri (2009), former Executive Editor and Editor-in-Chief of the Middle East Economic Survey; Bloomberg News’ OPEC correspondents (2012); and Ms. Margaret McQuaile (2015), a long-time reporter for Platts news service.
