The Recognition Award was bestowed to individuals whose careers included a long association with the midstream industry.
Initiated in 1949, it awarded those whose business careers and relationships have been marked by the integrity and cooperative spirit that is characteristic of the midstream industry fraternity. 2012 was the last year that this award was given; individuals with significant industry history and accomplishments are candidates for the Lifetime Achievement Award introduced in 2012 and first awarded in 2013.
