HOUSTON (Nov. 9, 2006) – Platts, the world' s leading supplier of energy information, along with sponsors Bracewell & Giuliani LLP and Capgemini, have announced the 2006 Global Energy Award finalists. Winners in 16 categories will be named at a gala celebration Nov. 30 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.
