Best Innovators is Exploration & Production’s in-house innovation competition. It’s been around for more than 20 years and recognizes employees, regardless of field, who have developed innovative projects. Every entry is reviewed based on a variety of criteria, including its innovative nature, technical contribution, simplicity, whether it can be reproduced elsewhere and cost culture.

So Best Innovators throws an annual spotlight on our innovativeness while striving to inspire others to follow suit. We want our employees to identify with the winners and innovate themselves.

A perfect illustration of our pioneer spirit

Treating “new ideas” with the importance they deserve. Making our future projects viable, acceptable and cost-effective. For the 2018 edition of the Best Innovators, we meet with Emmanuel Thomazo to share his insights on innovation.
