FIELD Challenge 2017: submission is open NEW: EAGE Student Newsletter November 2016

Gather a multi-disciplinary team of 3 to 5 students and enter the FIELD Challenge 2017!

Enter the Challenge
The EAGE FIELD Challenge promotes cross-disciplinary geoscience and engineering integration within universities. In teams, students will be required to analyze and propose a FIELD development plan for a dis¬covered hydrocarbon resource. To qualify for the FIELD Challenge, students are expected to unleash their creativity and technical excellence to 1) interpret an exploration dataset, 2) generate the most attractive prospect(s), and 3) win the licensing round. Deadline to submit and enter the competition is 8 January. 

The Trophy
The winning team of the FIELD Challenge will receive a trophy during the Paris 2017 Opening Ceremony in the presence of the top of our geoscience and engineering community. In addition, Total has a remarkable prize in store. The FIELD Challenge winners will receive a prize that will open doors in the students’ careers; a privileged visit to Total’s Scientific Headquarters in Pau, France. 

The latest EAGE Student Newsletter is out now! The new edition includes an interview with young professional Ivan Pires de Vasconcelos (Utrecht University) about his journey so far as a geophysicist. We are very excited about the FIELD Challenge 2017! In the newsletter you will read all about the upcoming dataset, how to enter the Challenge, and why Total is so eager to be involved in this prestigeous challenge.
