JJVL Nominated for Platts Global Energy Awards

AG’s flagship company, JJVL, is a finalist in two categories at the 2012 Platts Global Energy Awards. JJVL, Pakistan’s premier producer of liquefied petroleum gas, is nominated in the Commodity Excellence and Industry Leadership categories.

JJVL is proud to once again be representing Pakistan at the international awards. Its operational and technical excellence and consumer awareness and community outreach programs make JJVL an LPG sector pioneer. This is the seventh consecutive year that JJVL has been recognized by its peers in the global energy world. In previous years, JJVL has competed in the Downstream Business of the Year, Downstream Operations of the Year, Energy Pioneer, Energy Producer of the Year, Industry Leadership, and Rising Star categories.

Energy companies from 23 countries have been selected as finalists for the 2012 Platts Global Energy Awards, which recognize exemplary industry leadership. The finalists, chosen from nearly 200 nominees from 26 nominating countries, were announced on Sept. 24 by Platts, a leading global provider of energy information. Established in 1999, the Platts awards highlight corporate and individual innovation, leadership and superior performance in 19 categories spanning the entire energy complex.

“It’s notable that this year’s awards attracted nominations from 26 countries, making it truly the most international representation in the program’s 14-year history,” said Larry Neal, president of Platts. “While U.S. companies dominated, nominees and finalists also came from such places as Dominica, South Africa, Pakistan, New Zealand and Malta. We congratulate each of the nominees and finalists and look forward to announcing the winners in November.”

“The list of finalists also shows the broadening of influence well beyond the Western majors, with many nontraditional names among the Commodity Excellence categories in oil and natural gas,” said Patsy Wurster, head of the Platts Global Energy Awards program.

The 2012 judging process relied on the expertise of an impartial panel of international energy experts, who include energy ministers, national regulators, past and present heads of major energy companies and leading academics and legislators. The judges evaluated the entrants and will select the winners based on the criteria listed in each category, taking into consideration, where appropriate, company profiles and financial performance in the designated timeframe.

Winners will be announced Nov. 29 in New York.
