Jun 13, 2016

A team of graduate students from Texas A&M University’s Departments of Geology & Geophysics and Petroleum Engineering competed against six other schools in the global European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers 2016 Field Challenge in Vienna, Austria.

Their goal was to construct a field development plan for an oil field based on the data available after an initial exploration and appraisal phase.

The team was made up of Geologist/Geophysicist Noah Miller and three Reservoir Engineers, Emmanuel Belostrino, Tarang Lal, and Ashley Knorr Gehring.

They placed 2nd on the global stage, being the only North American team in the competition.
