We are pleased to announce that the first of six PetroBowl Regional Qualifiers for 2016 will be held in conjunction with SPE/IADC Middle East Drilling Conference and Exhibition on Thursday 28 January.

The PetroBowl competition pitches SPE student chapter teams against each other in a series of quick-fire rounds, answering technical and nontechnical industry-related questions.

All SPE student chapters within the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia SPE Regions are eligible to participate, except those affected by US and EU Sanction Laws. The top 32 teams from the six regional qualifiers, and the four finalists from the previous year’s championship, will be invited to attend the championship at ATCE on 26–28 September in Dubai, UAE.

The event will take place throughout the day and is free to attend for teams (upon approval of their registration) and for anyone else wanting to be part of the audience. Exact timings and location will be confirmed nearer the time.
