The laureates will be selected by vote of the International Award Committee. Fifteen scientists from nine countries – Canada, China, France, India, Kazakhstan, Russia, Singapore, USA, and Uruguay – have applied for the laureate title in such categories as Conventional Energy, Non-Conventional Energy and New Ways of Energy Application. The candidate shortlist was formed based on peer review of 119 applications from 43 countries submitted within December 01, 2021-March 20, 2022.
“The ceremony in Khanty-Mansiysk will continue the tradition of the visiting announcement of the award winners in Russian cities: the laureates’ names were announced in Kaluga in 2020, and Kazan – in 2021. At the same time, not only the geography of the association’s events is expanding but also the research topics among the prize nominees. The international committee is looking forward to an interesting choice,” says Global Energy President Sergey Brilev.
After announcement of the laureates, Rae Kwon Chung, Dmitri Bessarabov, and William Byun are going to hold a round table discussion at the Institute of Oil and Gas of Yugra State University.
