Recognizing Today's Rising Technology Influencers

Innovation is the lifeblood of the oil and gas industry. However, innovation requires invention. Invention requires ideation. Ideation requires inspiration.

The value of an idea is found in how it is used, as Thomas Edison, the inventor of the modern-day lightbulb and more, once noted. Ideas and all of their possible uses become reality when the brightest minds transform inspiration into innovation.

In recognition of the oil and gas industry’s brightest minds, inventive innovators and rising stars of cutting-edge technology development, E&P is proud to announce the 2021 40 Under Forty recognition program.

We invite you to nominate professionals under 40 who are moving the industry forward. These men and women should have demonstrated leadership and made significant contributions to advancing oil- and gas-related technologies. Their impact can be demonstrated by innovations that enhance (or have potential to enhance) a company’s mission or the industry’s long-term success.
