Student Development Summit

SPE is pleased to announce the launch of the SPE Regional Student Development Summit, which will be held in conjunction with the CTCE.

The Russia and Caspian region has an extremely active Student membership and shows great potential for membership growth. To capitalise on CTCE being in Astana and linking in with the regional focus on talent development, SPE will host students from Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Russian chapters who will attend the  SPE Regional Student Development Summit which will run from the 11th – 13th November in Astana and will be hosted by Nazarbayev University.

Sessions will cover soft skills courses and prevalent technical issues in the region facing students today, which will enable students to gain a better understanding of the Oil and Gas Industry in the Caspian region. Students will be given the opportunity to network with peers, share ideas, meet with major industry figures and employers and also work together on joint technical projects.
