Berkeley Engineering Consultants (BEC), a single access point for specialist engineering services for the global oil & gas sector, is celebrating winning The Queen’s Award for International Trade. It is a major achievement with BEC, being one of just over 200 companies to have been recognised out of more than 4 million registered businesses nationwide.

BEC is a strategic partner to major names in oil & gas including Saudi Aramco and their JV partners, providing process engineering services which enable its clients to select the safest, most efficient and cost-effective designs for their processing facilities. Its activities encompass extraction, refining, petrochemical and petrochemical processing projects.

Based in London with an engineering office in Reading, BEC employs engineering specialists delivering high value optimal cost driven client solutions. It operates from facilities worldwide including Saudi Arabia, India, Pakistan, Kazakhstan and South Korea, and opened a new dedicated office in Oman earlier in 2019 to support this rapidly growing market.

Innovative and flexible approach 

BEC’s CEO, Irteza Piracha, commented: “Winning The Queen’s Award represents another major milestone in our journey. We have built our success on offering an innovative and flexible approach to supporting our clients who are some of the world’s biggest oil & gas companies. Key to that is being physically close to them and we continue to open offices in strategic locations to support their needs.

“A very special thank you to each of the employees and their families for their belief in the owners and their ideals.”

The Queen's Awards

Now in their 53rd year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the UK, with winning businesses able to use the esteemed Queen’s Awards emblem for the next five years.

Made just once a year, The Queen’s Awards are the most prestigious awards for UK businesses, recognising outstanding achievement among UK-based companies in four categories which also include Innovation, Promoting Opportunity (through Social Mobility) and Sustainable Development.

BEC is one of just a handful of organisations supporting the oil & gas sector to have been recognised in The Queen’s Awards this year.

BEC will celebrate its award during a royal reception for Queen’s Awards winners in the summer.
