A committee of industry experts selected Repsol Chairman and CEO Antonio Brufau from nearly 200 nominees. These awards are considered one of the most prestigious in the energy industry.
The panel of judges valued Antonio Brufau’s strategic vision and leadership in successfully directing Repsol’s trajectory, especially after the expropriation of YPF.
Platts is the world’s leading agency specialised in providing information on energy, petrochemicals and metals, and is over a hundred years old.
Platts highlighted the transformation seen in Repsol in recent years, during which it has become a world leader in exploration and has made five of the most important hydrocarbon discoveries in the world. In addition, the company has recently developed the largest industrial project in Spain, which has placed its downstream area at the forefront of European refining systems. Along with this transformation, Repsol has also created exemplary human resources and environmental management policies.
Repsol is well known for its commitment to innovation and technology, which was already recognised by Platts in 2009, when the company won the "Commercial Technology of the Year award" and in 2004, when it was awarded the "Best Engineering Project of the Year".
