Hess Corporation received the 2015 Explorers of Houston Award for Leadership & Innovation on Oct. 20.

And, Hess’ recent Deepwater success of the Tubular Bells field yielding first production in the fourth quarter of 2014 proved that the company was a natural selection to receive the award this year.”

Accepting the award on the company’s behalf were:

  • Mike Turner, Senior Vice-President, Onshore
  • Brian Truelove, Senior Vice-President, Offshore
  • Zhanna Golodryga,  Senior Vice President & CIO Services & IT
