Second Middle East Boot Camp 2016 NEW: EAGE Student Newsletter November 2015

“Seismic Imaging of an Active Fault Zone”

Put geophysical theory into practice during the EAGE Middle East Geophysics Boot Camp! This second edition aims to expose participants (M.Sc. and Ph.D. students, young professionals) to industry-grade geophysical operations, which involves reflection seismic acquisition and processing. The overall aim for the Middle East Boot Camp is to complement high-resolution seismic data with a magnetic and gravity profile and, possibly extend the surveyed area and add more geophysical data (geoelectric & remote sensing) in the near future. Register before 10 September! Read more.  


In this November newsletter Student Affairs Committee Co-Chair Pierre-olivier Lys (Total) introduces the Vienna 2016 Student Programme theme and you can expect a sneak peek all the activities we have scheduled for our delegates! Are you planning to participate in the FIELD Challenge? This issue includes all information you need to know about the challenge and the dataset provided by OMV.

Jesper Dramsch, Master student at Hamburg University, writes his first column for EAGE, and the newsletter gives the stage to the best EAGE Student Chapters of 2014-2015. Of course the newsletter also includes industry news and upcoming EAGE events.




FIELD Challenge 2016: submit your essay now! Regional Geo-Quiz winners to Vienna 2016 Student Lecture Tours for 2015-2016

Universities are invited to participate in the FIELD Challenge 2016 with a multi-disciplinary team of three to five fulltime geoscience and petroleum engineering students (max. one PhD student per team). Disciplines that could be represented in your team are geophysics, geology, petrophyscis, reservoir and production engineering. Teams can enter the challenge through an essay submission (2000-3000 words) on the following topic:

"Many geoscientists and reservoir engineers in your company will retire in three to five years from now. How would you organize the transfer of knowledge between these senior geoscientists and the new generation?"

Read more about the topic here.

The six best teams will be selected to analyze and propose a FIELD Development Plan based on a dataset provided by OMV. Those teams will receive travel grants to Vienna 2016 to present their findings in front of an expert jury on Monday 30 May 2016. 

More information about the FIELD Challenge is available here. For questions, please contact the Community Manager (Students) on
