Safe Influx has been named a finalist in the S&P Global Platts Global Energy Awards, an annual program recognising exemplary corporate and individual innovation, leadership and superior performance. The 2020 finalists, chosen from some 300 nominated entries from over three dozen countries, were just announced by program host S&P Global Platts. 

Safe Influx was nominated for its unique Automated Well Control technology, which is designed to fully automate influx detection and shut-in sequences to dramatically reduce the influx size and prevent major accident hazards. 

Bryan Atchison, Managing Director at Safe Influx, comments: “We are delighted to be nominated for the Global Energy Awards. It is wonderful that S&P Global Platts recognises the significant contribution of our Automated Well Control system to the industry by nominating Safe Influx for the Global Energy Awards in the Emerging Technology of the year category. Winning this award would represent a significant milestone for Safe Influx, underlining our view that Safe Influx technology can dramatically improve wells’ operations. 

 “The Global Energy Awards, nominations and finalists continue to reflect the evolution of the industry, highlighting technology innovations, as well as accelerated focus on energy transition to a lower-carbon environment,” said Martin Fraenkel, president, S&P Global Platts. “Innovation, resolve and transformation were characteristic throughout this year’s applications and each of the finalists and nominees are to be congratulated for their accomplishments.”
