Congratulations to SPE August Student Chapter of the Month – Middle East Technical University Cyprus!

The SPE August Student Chapter of the Month Middle East Technical University Cyprus (North Cyprus Campus) is staying busy while growing their membership.

The students of this chapter have been eagerly participating in and hosting petroleum engineering events.  They visited TPAO Akcakoca Natural Gas production facilities and three Offshore Production platforms, including GSP Bigfoot 3 that was doing drilling operation on Akcakoca shore.  They also visited the Research Laboratory of Turkish Petroleum Corporation. Some of the students attended the two day IPETGAS 2011 Chamber of Geophysical Engineers and UCTEA Chamber of Petroleum Engineers. They have also participated in the SPE Turkey Paper Contest. It is an objective of this chapter to learn and participate as much as possible with anything to do with petroleum engineering.

Keep up the great work Middle East Technical University Student Cyprus Chapter and once again, congratulations!
