‘East meets West’ 2017!

‘East meets West’ 2017!

From 4th to 7th of April for the 8th time SPE AGH Chapter was organizing ‘East meets West’ International Student Petroleum Congress and Career Expo. We have gathered around 250 participants representing 26 countries and numerous companies from E&P sector. This year’s edition was special thanks to SPE International which enabled us to host European Qualifier to Student Paper Contest and Petrobowl. It is worth to mention that the winners of above contests will represent European region at ATCE Conference in October in San Antonio, Texas.

The winner of SPC Undergraduate was Wojciech Labuda, from AGH UST with the paper on ‘Profitability calculations of abandoned mine methane production in the Upper Silesian coal basin’. In the Postgraduate category the best was Dongue Dongue Dietrich Kevin representing Imperial College London, with the ‘Study of grid effects on leak-off rate calculation for a numerical fracture propagating model’. The best from PhD’s was Marsha Maraj from London South Bank University presenting the paper on ‘Deriving the pore size distribution of selected reservoir material using a combined microCT and NMR approach’.

Traditionally, we had the Poster Session during which selected students could present the results of their researches and compete in the contest. All the contestants presented a very high substantive level and Yiqun Liu from DTU was announced the winner. Needless to say, emotions were running high during Petrobowl Contest. It gathered 23 teams from Europe and Caspian Region and resulted in 5 teams which will represent this region at ATCE. They were from University of Stavanger, Herriot Watt-, Gubkin-, Leoben University and the best team- AGH UST! Congratulations to all, it was a pleasure to watch you!

Debates are always a very popular point in EMW’a agenda. It was no different this year with „HSE Aspects in Oil & Gas Industry” and „Womens role in modern O&G Industry” debates. The panelists who have taken part were extremely experienced professionals and thank to that the audience could gain knowledge, interact by asking questions and raise a discussion. Both panels showed that the future of our Industry and the situation of women in s.t  is bright despite the crisis.

This Conference though wouldn’t have been such a success if not for the Partnering Companies: MOL Group, Schlumberger, Baker Hughes, EuRoPol GAZ and PGNiG. Their support enabled to organize the Congress, gave students the opportunity to find out about the chances of employment and take part in the recruitment organized by Schlumberger.

This conference is and always has been all about bringing young people together in the center of Europe, creating the environment which will enable them to gain knowledge, exchange experience and develop friendships. Seeing you all there was a true reward for the year of preparations and I hope that our efforts will resulted in fruitful event and great memories. If you haven’t take part in this edition – do not worry, next year we see each other in Krakow with even bigger amount of knowledge and experiences!

IPTC – Education Week

International Petroleum Technology Conference, or popularly known as “IPTC” has been successfully held from 14th to 16th November in Bangkok!! This year, throughout the successful efforts of the organizing committee, the IPTC has attracted more than three thousand audience from 51 countries and 37 companies as exhibitors. This year proud to say that IPTC has come to 10th Edition! As a student, I am proud to be there to join this one of the world’s foremost oil and gas event! Much honorable is that I got the opportunity to join the IPTC Education Week Program!

What is Education Week?

The education week was held from 12th to 16th November with 67 students participated from 47 universities and 29 countries! It is a one week based program where the selected student will have the opportunity to learn and get some exposure to know more about the oil and gas industry through some panel session, experience sharing talk and field trip. It is proud to have Exxon Mobil, Hess and Mubadala Petroleum to be the sponsor of education week this year!

Overall Program Experience

On the 1st day of program, we have the welcoming party in which we get to know every student and also the young professional leader. It is a great networking activity where we get to know all the students from different countries and also different cultural backgrounds.  During the 2nd day of the program, we are proud to have the industry executive representatives sharing their expertise with us with the theme of “Innovation and Efficiency Excellence for our energy future”. We have the speaker from PTTEP, Schlumberger, Halliburton, Shell, Baker Hughes, Exxon Mobil, Hess and Mubadala Petroleum. The expertise advised us for not to give up to the oil and gas industry during this downturn. According to them, the energy demand is still on the track of increasing. Therefore, it is still a hope because during that time is our young generation to monopolize the oil and gas industry. The most important point is we have to find the dynamic balance point between the supply and demand. Moreover, the advancement of technology such as the advancement of data processing, renewable energy and (Autonomous underwater vehicle) AUV or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have proved to bring a bright future to us! Quoted from the words of Senior Vice President PTTEP, in order to overcome our business’s challenge, we have to be innovative and efficient in our task. That is why IPTC comes with the theme ”Innovation and Efficiency Excellence for our energy future”.

SEG Student Field Camp Poland 2016 – Searching for hidden treasures – Student’s Geophysical Quest

SEG Student Field Camp Poland 2016 – Searching for hidden treasures – Student’s Geophysical Quest

After a close collaboration between members of two SEG Student Chapters – SEG Bucharest Student Chapter and SEG Cracow Student Chapter – the idea of the Joint Field Camp was born and then successfully realised in September. It incorporated students from two different countries (Romania and Poland) and also international students from all around the world.

A group of 30 students was actively involved in geophysical field training and supervised by experienced researchers from AGH University as well as the professionals from the Polish Geological Institute – National Research Institute. Scientists taught international group of students how to use geophysical methods to identify underground structures. A training ground for research was sixteenth-century fortress Srebrna Góra in Lower Silesia, Poland.

1_srebrnagora_survey6

The first three days students spent on field measurements nearby the great, sixteenth-century fortress and at the fourteenth-century collegiate church in Kłodzko, looking for underground structures. Participants had the opportunity to learn how to use the equipment and how to make professional analysis of geophysical data. They also learned about satellite geodetic coordinates. Scientists from Polish Geological Institute demonstrated electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) and conductivity measurements (EM) in application of shallow geology surveys.

1_srebrnagora_survey2

In the gothic church in Klodzko dr Jerzy Ziętek from AGH led the measurements using ground penetrating radar (GPR). The aim of the survey was to investigate unknown underground structures of the building, including detection of basement walls and crypts. You can read more about this part of the project at: www.radiowroclaw.pl

The event was ended with a geological trip to The Stołowe Mountains National Park, located in the central part of Sudety Mountains in Kłodzko land. Participants had a chance to learn about the geology of the area – a wide region of old mountains, dating back to cretaceous.
