Power Play Awards  

From all of us at ExxonMobil, congratulations to the winners of the 2020 LNG Power Play Awards. Now in its second year, the Power Play Awards celebrate the achievements of outstanding women in the LNG (liquefied natural gas) industry and the men who support and empower them around the globe. Just like its inaugural year, this 2020 awards received tremendous support with registered interest from more than 185 companies from across 37 countries.  

After reaching a consensus on finalists, a period of community voting took place where members of the LNG community were encouraged to vote for one person in each category. Community votes, which reached a record number of over 92,000, were tallied and made up a portion of the overall scores for each finalist. The individuals with the highest scores once the community voting period had ended were selected as the winners.

The winners of the 2020 Power Play Awards were announced virtually on September 16, 2020.
