During a special ceremony to mark the occasion in Houston, DP founder Howard Shatto characterised Dr Cargill as an active coach and mentor to industry professionals. He also praised Steven for his ability to empathise with contrasting industry opinions, and turn differing views into pragmatic technical solutions that benefit the sector.
