Sunday 4 June – 9:00 to 16:00 CEST
Where: Room 3 (Schubert 4)
The Laurie Dake Challenge is a student competition created to promote cross-disciplinary geoscience and engineering integration within universities.
For the first time, Geothermal energy exploration is the main topic of our challenge, so participants are invited to test their knowledge and ingenuity in producing stable, low-carbon energy solutions.
The competition starts with an assignment that must be prepared by each of the 13 selected teams. After this first round 10 teams will be chosen to submit a Field plan, and the jury will select the best 6 proposals.
All teams work with the same data set, this year, provided by OMV.
On Sunday 4 June, the six finalist teams will present their field development plan to an expert jury during the 84th EAGE Conference & Exhibition, in Vienna, Austria.
Integration is the key!
How to participate in the Laurie Dake Challenge?
Universities are invited to participate in the Laurie Dake Challenge with a multidisciplinary team of 3 to 5 students (one PhD student per team allowed).
The group can consist of full-time students from some or all of the following disciplines:
- Reservoir engineering
- Production engineering
- Petroleum economics
- Petroleum Engineering
To enter the competition each team is required to fill-in an Application Form, and submit a Motivational Letter along with a signed Declaration of Academic Integrity.
Thank you to all the student teams that submitted their applications before 3 January 2023!
