Round the Clock Resources
The contest includes quick, definitive lightening-round questions, and longer, thought-provoking questions, for each university team. Points are awarded for each correct answer, with the winning team announced at the end of the challenge.
The oil and gas industry has developed a greater understanding of the importance and need for health, safety, security, environment and social responsibility (HSSE-SR) industry specialists. As this understanding has increased, students now have more opportunities to engage and learn about the discipline.
The HSSE-SR Student Challenge aims to attract and engage undergraduate students of diverse disciplines to gain insight and knowledge of the oil and gas industry and detailed elements of HSSE-SR.

Young Professional (YP) Panel Discussion
Transitioning students into the oil and gas industry is essential for the sustainability of the industry. It is vital to have the most brilliant and enthusiastic students enter our industry. This panel (current YPs in our industry) will discuss: opportunities and strategies for success; growing/developing as a YP; segment of the industry to work in (upstream, midstream & downstream); how to keep growing, networking, and continuing education (advance degrees); managing your career; and dealing with a multigenerational work force. Students will have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss opportunities in our industry.
Table Topics (speed dating)
The discussion tables provides young professionals an informal opportunity to discuss topics ranging from the state of the industry to career advancement with leading industry professionals. There are four table discussion rounds. Each round will last 10 minutes with a 5-minute intersession.

Participants will receive an overview of key sustainability trends, challenges applying those concepts to a case study providing:
- Guidance on addressing sustainability early in a project’s lifecycle, with special attention on how to articulate the sustainability business case, apply organizational change management techniques, optimize sustainability through operations and increase the likelihood of a project’s success.
- Exploration of effective community engagement practices, including discussion of how to manage sustainability in different cultures and work with communities to manage the local economic aspects associated with oil and gas development.
Topics to be touched upon include:
- Articulating the sustainability business case
- Creating a deep and integrated understanding of sustainability
- Applying organizational change management techniques
- Integrating sustainability into the project lifecycle
- Identifying sustainability risks and opportunities
- Optimizing sustainability through operational understanding
- Optimizing stakeholder engagement and communications
- Contributing community sustainability – managing the boom and bust impacts to community economics
- A fundamental principle underpins this course:
Securing and maintaining a license to operate (as well as growing the commercial value beyond this threshold) extends well beyond legislative requirements and regulatory permitting to encompass not only the mitigation of adverse social and environmental impacts but also the advancement of financial, societal, and environmental benefits via the execution of strong sustainability performance.
Learning Objective: The objective of this course is to provide participants with tools, techniques, and knowledge for immediate use to help operators maintain project value through sustainability.
