Young talent, knowledge, and perspectives are vital for the world to solve our future energy challenge. Addressing the youth and involving young people in the design of our future energy solutions is key to recognising their significant role in the growth of the petroleum industry. It is important to give the young generation the scope to develop their own ideas, talents, and competencies to create viable solutions for the future of our world.
SPE has a vision for “youth engaged in the petroleum industry to design a sustainable future”, which can be achieved through creating collaborative, global forums for young professionals to be heard, promote a realistic image of the petroleum industry, its challenges and opportunities, and bridge the generation gap through mentorship networks.
The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for young professionals, engineers, and oil and gas industry professionals (with particular focus on the Middle East Region, North Africa, India, and Europe) to present and disseminate information amongst themselves in order to prepare and equip the new generation of leaders in the oil and gas industry to confidently face future global challenges. Topics like personal development, clear career paths, women’s challenges, leadership and management, professional societies, and more will be addressed in this workshop.
This workshop will aim at reviewing international best practices related to integrated services, focus on challenges and models available and applicable to the Middle East, and share regional experiences from a positive and negative standpoint.
SPE Middle East, North Africa, and India will assist in providing a visa invitation letter, upon request in writing, to confirmed registrants after receiving full payment of registration fees. Visa invitation letters take five days to issue from the date of request and it is the delegate's responsibility to obtain their own visa. SPE cannot issue the visa nor can we guarantee it will be obtained.
Two (2) days of informal discussions prompted by selected keynote presentations and discussions. Workshops maximise the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through brief technical presentations followed by extended breakout sessions and Q&A periods. The majority of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements, and lessons learnt.
The Steering Committee encourages registrations from professionals who are able to prepare and present a poster on a relevant project. For further details kindly contact May Asmer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Steering Committee encourages attendance from those who can contribute to the workshop most effectively either in discussions or with posters. A mix of attendees in terms of geographic origin, companies, and disciplines will be encouraged.
