Over the course of 40 years, under the leadership of Norman L Gilsdorf, his company’s reputation as a trusted advisor and technology partner to the regional energy industry has grown exponentially. The company continues to contribute innovative technologies, know-how and global best practices that regional producers rely on to generate the most value from every drop of oil and every cubic foot of natural gas that they produce.

Gilsdorf is currently overseeing several cutting-edge digitalisation pilot projects with key energy sector stakeholders. Recently, he led a collaboration with a major Middle Eastern national oil company, putting in place a successful IIoT ‘proof of value’ project to improve operating asset performance by driving greater operating efficiencies and reducing costs, while maintaining safety and asset integrity.

Thanks to Gilsdorf’s concerted efforts, Honeywell today is supporting the regional energy industry in numerous ways, including new technologies for sulphur removal, heavy oil upgrading and alkylation, as well as modular gas processing and treatment solutions, and more efficient processes to manufacture high-value petrochemicals. His knowledge of industry trends and Honeywell’s portfolio of leading technologies are helping regional companies unlock value through higher levels of reliability, flexibility, efficiency and safety.

Being named Innovator of the Year is a great honour. The award recognises Honeywell’s efforts to advance digital transformation, and the great people we have working across our various teams who are shaping the future of the energy industry,” said Gilsdorf.

“Regional producers rely on us to generate the most value from every drop of oil and every cubic foot of natural gas they produce, and we will continue to create more value for our customers by applying innovative thinking and technology in a way that solves problems and continuously improves the way things are done.”
