Lifetime Contribution Award
Africa Oil Week this year introduced the Adrian Bligh Memorial Award to give recognition to someone who has made a ‘Lifetime Contribution to Africa’. The first award was made posthumously to Adrian Bligh, who sadly passed away in September this year. Adrian had worked for PGS for many years, focusing on Africa, and he had many friends and colleagues from the continent – he is hugely missed both there and in PGS. He was described during the award ceremony as having a passion for Africa and for driving successful partnerships with companies and ministries – and it was also remembered that he was always great fun to be with.
The award was accepted on his behalf by his PGS colleagues Rob Holden and Dawn van Zeelst, and was presented by Paul Sinclair, Conference Director at Africa Oil Week.
