Queen's Award to Enterprise - International Trade 2016
Benchmark Geophysical Consulting Limited is very proud to announce receipt of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2016. The award is given by the Queen on the recommendation of the British Prime Minister. This year 259 U.K. companies received the award. The Queen's Awards for Enterprise is an awards programme for British businesses and other organizations who excel at international trade, innovation or sustainable development. They are the highest official UK awards for British businesses.
Benchmark’s Managing Director, Richard Llewellyn, said that the award “represents many years of focussed hard work from career experienced consultants. Benchmark consultants manage geophysical operations worldwide for major international and national oil and gas companies. Although the award is qualified over a three year performance period, it is the quality of professional support that Benchmark personnel have given to the industry since the company started in 1999 that has made such a small company so prominent in the geophysical industry. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all those consultants who went above and beyond so often.”
Benchmark Geophysical Consulting Limited is based in Farnham, in the U.K., but has provided consultants to operations in N.E. China, Inner Mongolia, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Kalmykia, Siberia, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, The UAE, Sudan, Libya, Nigeria, Chad, Angola, Gulf of Mexico, Peru, Iceland and Greenland.
The company has also contributed to industry quality management since its inception by sponsoring participation in the development of best practice guidance that is published by trade organisations such as the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP). Benchmark is a member of Oil & Gas UK, is a founding corporate member of The International Energy Consultants Organisation (IECO), and a continuous member of the International Geophysical Contractors Association (IAGC) since 1999.
