Stocks in this article: XOM

Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) announced today that Timothy J. Nedwed, Ph.D., has received the prestigious Edith and Peter O’Donnell Award for Technology Innovation for his work in the development of offshore oil spill response technologies.

Dr. Nedwed leads the oil spill response research program for ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company in Houston. His innovative research has been instrumental in furthering industry’s capabilities for responding to potential offshore oil spills.

The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas (TAMEST) will honor Dr. Nedwed and other recipients of the Edith and Peter O’Donnell Awards on January 17 at a banquet in Dallas.

“Tim Nedwed is a true innovator. He sees things differently, envisions the possibilities and makes connections where none existed before,” said Sara N. Ortwein, president of ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company. “His research is critical to our industry’s continued success and has resulted in dramatic benefits to the environment. We are pleased his efforts are being recognized by such a prestigious organization.”

Dr. Nedwed conducts research to develop new oil spill response technologies and to study oil spill fate and effects. His primary areas of focus are in situ burning, dispersants and remote detection.

“It is essential that our growing energy requirements be met with a strong commitment to safeguard the environment,” said Dr. William Brinkley, TAMEST’s 2012 president. “We are especially pleased to recognize Dr. Timothy Nedwed as the 2013 O’Donnell Award recipient in Technology Innovation for his research in oil spill response technologies.”

The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas was founded in 2004 to provide broader recognition of the state’s top technical achievers, and to build a stronger identity for Texas as a center of achievement in these fields. The awards are named in honor of Edith and Peter O’Donnell who are among the state’s staunchest advocates for excellence in scientific advancement and STEM education.
