IPTC – Education Week

4 December, 2016 Events No comments
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”.

Apart from that, we have the chance on the 4th day to visit IPTC education booth, technical session and panel session.

On the last day of IPTC Education Week, we have our group presentation in which we present our group works since July 2016. Each group consists of 6 to 7 people from different universities and different background of study, which consists of Petroleum Engineering, Geology, Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering and etc. Every group has different topics such as Deep water development, renewable energy, Field development, social license to operate, High Pressure High Temperature and etc. My group got the topic of Social License to Operate. It was a great exposure and learning experience listening to another group presentation. During the preparation of the works, you have the opportunity to know other students from different universities. It is so wonderful to see everyone coming from different universities and cooperate together to get the work done successfully. That’s truly a great experience and great social networking event for students!

Hope to see you again in China 2019!

Last but not least, IPTC Education Week is truly a great experience for students! Opportunity doesn’t wait! Grab the opportunity next IPTC in China 2019. As a student, grab this opportunity and apply through your society, such as SPE, SEG and AAPG, and EAGE. IPTC is a platform to promote knowledge sharing and scientific and technology dissemination on a global scale. (IPTC Home Website). Can’t wait again for the next IPTC!

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.

2nd South Asian Geosciences Student Conference (SAGSC) 2016 – Event Summary

   The 2nd SAGSC 2016 was held on August 22nd – 27th 2016 by Society of Exploration Geophysicists Universitas Gadjah Mada Student Chapter (SEG UGM SC) and Himpunan Mahasiswa Geofisika Universitas Gadjah Mada (HMGF UGM). The event itself consists of eight sub-events, they are Conference, Exhibition Competition, Grand Ceremonies, GeoBowl, City Tour, Field Trip, and Lectures.

   2nd SAGSC 2016 is a forum where geosciences students from various field of study may interact with each other and share their knowledge and ideas for a better future. By participating in 2nd SAGSC 2016, it means that, as geosciences students, the participants have already start their movement to become the part of a great change in the future, where we, geosciences students will be able to strengthen the geosciences itself, which will eventually lead us to a better tomorrow.

   The main event of 2nd SAGSC 2016 was held in University Club Hotel, Universitas Gadjah Mada. It was opened by an opening ceremony which was held on the first day (August 22nd 2016) and was closed by a closing ceremony, gala dinner, and winner announcement on the third day (August 24th 2016). This year, 2nd SAGSC 2016 received about 194 abstracts coming from many countries around Asian continent. After getting reviewed by our peer-reviewers, we selected 85 papers to be presented in the conference which comprise of 50 oral presentations and 35 poster presentations that will be divided into several sessions. We also took note of 20 best that were presented here, which consist of 12 papers from the oral session (taken from each oral session) and also 8 papers from the poster presentation to be considered as the best papers. Even though this event was held in Indonesia, the best paper from the oral and poster presentation came from the students of National Central University, Taiwan. Congratulations to them for beating the host country of this event!

   Even though the main interest for 2nd SAGSC 2016 lies within its conference, we also hold several student competitions and a student exhibition. Those sub-events were hold to increase the euphoria of the events held in 2nd SAGSC 2016. These student competitions consist of photography competition, essay competition, and GeoBowl. The biggest interest in these student competitions lies with the GeoBowl, a smart competition which was designed to test the students’ knowledge and also ability to compete in several matches in order to see which team that can be considered as the best one. The winners for this event came from Universitas Gadjah Mada (1st place) and Institut Teknologi Bandung (2nd and 3rd places).

   After journeying the three days conference, our participants were entertained by the field trip to Merapi volcano (for those who wanted to feel the adrenaline of a real adventure) and also a city tour to several tourism spots on Jogjakarta (for those who wanted to know the Javanese culture). After having one day break from the activities of the past four days, 2nd SAGSC 2016 was continued by one seminar and two workshops which were delivered by selected professionals from the energy industry to, again, increase the participants’ knowledge about geosciences itself.

   The total participants for this event were 628 persons, which consists of the authors, participants from the conference, GeoBowl, student competition, student expo, seminar, and workshop, with several additional amounts of participants coming from our committees themselves. Compared to other student conference around this region, 2nd SAGSC 2016 can be considered as one of the biggest student conference ever held on this region because of the amount of the participants.

   Last but not least, we would like to thank our sponsors, supporters, and media partners, without their help, 2nd SAGSC 2016 will not became as big as what it was. We also would like to the crowd of participants that have enliven this event as well.

Associated with a very rich historical background, Kotlina Kłodzka is best known for its underground
buried buildings like abandoned mine shafts that are ready to be discovered.

Students participating in a Field Camp will have a chance to gain new experience both in solving field cases and field work. We are planning to use different types of geophysical surveys. We would like to present student to several geophysical methods :
– Electrical Resisitivity Tomography and Electromagnetic Conductivity Meters surveys which are used in archaeological geophysics and for shallow geology prospection;
– GPR – a method which allow us to show students how ground penetrating radar works in searching for crypts in old churches.

One of the most important aspects of Field Camp for the society members is the practical implementation of the theoretical knowledge during field measurements and further processing and interpretation of collected data.
