The Stanley Slipper Medal is amongst the highest honours awarded by the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists. The medal is presented annually for outstanding contributions to petroleum exploration and development either in Canada or by Canadian-based petroleum geologists working internationally. The contributions of the winner of this award may encompass one or more activities including initiating and/or leading exploration or development programs, making significant discoveries on new or existing exploration trends, applying new technologies to exploration and exploitation, and teaching and/or training of petroleum geologists. In contrast to other CSPG awards, the Stanley Slipper Award recognizes, in part, accomplishments in business and in the broader petroleum industry through the application of the knowledge of petroleum geology. The award is limited to individuals. Candidates must be alive at the time of their selection. The winner must be a petroleum geologist and a CSPG member.
The recipient of the Slipper Medal for 2018 is Grant Douglas Wach, Professor in the Department of Earth Sciences at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia and Director of their Basin and Reservoir Laboratory.
