Award for Innovation and Leadership

PESA's Explorers of Houston program was established in 1999 to recognize exploration and production companies that demonstrate excellence in technological innovation and industry leadership.

Each year, PESA recognizes its Explorers of Houston recipient at an exclusive, members-only reception. In addition, the Explorers Committee sponsors an annual golf tournament with proceeds supporting the Explorers of Houston Award, the Offshore Energy Center, the National Energy Education Development Program (NEED)  and IPAA's petroleum exploration and production technology academies.
