80 students for major energy conference

Manama, October 21, 2007

More than 80 students from 27 countries representing 40 institutions will participate in a major energy conference in Bahrain this December.

This is part of an innovative new initiative from the organisers of the International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) 2007.

“A Changing World – Interdependence, Innovation and Implementation,” will take place at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from December 4 to 6, 2007.-

Some of the world’s brightest final year undergraduates in science, engineering and geoscience field have been extended an invitation to attend the conference, as part of the IPTC’s “Education Week”.

The objective of the week is to provide a clear insight into the energy industry for the next generation of specialists, geologists and engineers. As well as attending seminars during the event, the students will also work collaboratively on a number of technical projects, which will be presented at the end of the conference, said an official spokesman.

Organisers are optimistic that Education Week will be particularly beneficial for young GCC nationals looking to work in the oil and gas industry, offering them an important global perspective on an essential industry within the region.

“Education Week is part of the IPTC’s investment in the future of our industry,” said IPTC executive manager and Society of Petroleum Engineers Executive Director Mark Rubin.

The Education Week initiative is made possible by donations from a number of major energy leaders, including Baker Hughes, BP, ENI, Halliburton, PETRONAS, RasGas, Shell, Total, Petroleum Development Oman and Schlumberger.

Students will also benefit from meeting with representatives from the leading professional groups of the energy sector, including The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG).-  TradeArabia News Service
