Hosted by energy industry publisher Hart Energy, the 2021 Special Meritorious Awards for Engineering Innovation (MEA) is one of the industry’s most established and widely respected engineering awards programs. This year, Data Gumbo is thrilled to be named a winner in the Digitalization category for its trusted smart contract network, GumboNet™.
The MEAs recognize service and operating companies for excellence in achievement in the upstream petroleum industry. Each year, the world’s best new tools and techniques for finding, developing and producing hydrocarbons are recognized with entries judged on their game-changing significance, both technically and economically. Judges include respected professionals with engineering and technical backgrounds who have extensive knowledge of the categories they are judging.
“Being named as a winner in the Digitalization category of this prestigious award is a testament to Data Gumbo’s headway in fundamentally transforming how industry executes business,” said Andrew Bruce, Founder and CEO, Data Gumbo. “Oil and gas is a capital and resource-intensive industry that is ripe for innovation.
