The SPE NED Student Chapter was given a complimentary stall by POGEE at the POGEE Conference and Exhibition held at the Expo Centre Karachi from 19th to 22nd May. The students displayed 6 projects at the stall, the subjects of which included synthesis of biodiesel, geothermal power plant, CO2 sequestration, coal bed methane, drilling rig model, and tidal energy.
All the projects had attracted about 500 visitors from upstream, downstream, and energy industries. The visitors had shown great interest in all the projects, but especially in biodiesel. The rig model, tidal energy, and geothermal power plant had also drawn attention from the visitors. For the upstream sector, CO2 sequestration and coal bed methane were of greater interest. The rig model helped those unfamiliar with the upstream industry understand basic drilling operation.
The SPE NED Student Chapter’s Representatives shared with the visitors the benefits of becoming members of SPE. The response of industry personnel was overwhelming. Everyone appreciated the efforts of the students, and the event proved to be very successful. It gave an excellent exposure to the students and encouraged them to continue their work in future.
Great job, SPE NED student chapter!
