That the Parliament congratulates everyone who took part in the Offshore Safety Awards on 17 August 2016 at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre; welcomes all of the people and businesses that are helping make a positive difference to safety in the North Sea and congratulates those who were honoured by the oil and gas sector for their efforts, with 18 being shortlisted in the six categories, and congratulates Enquest's operations manager, Derek Ellington, whose leadership, it believes, has transformed the culture of one of the North Sea’s most mature assets, the Heather A platform, by improving standards and ensuring good relationships with everyone to improve efficiency and productivity and maintain an excellent safety record.
