Winners of the 2021 Laurie Dake Challenge

Five students of the IFP School European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers Student Chapter won the 2021 Laurie Dake Challenge, which took place on July 28.

The multicultural team, named "ROCKIT", is made up of: Feriel Adjaout (Algeria, Petroleum Engineering and Project Development), Guzel Alibaeva (Russia, Reservoir Geoscience and Engineering), Nargiz Mammadova (Azerbaijan, Petroleum Geosciences), Douglas Rodrigues Moura (Brazil, Petroleum Geosciences) and Oswald Segda (Burkina Faso, Reservoir Geoscience and Engineering).

The Laurie Dake Challenge, formerly known as the FIELD Challenge, is organized by the European association of geoscientists and engineers (EAGE). This competition pits 10 EAGE student chapters from around the world against each other.

This year, IFP School’s team had to elaborate a field development plan using data provided by Wintershall DEA.

Frédérique Fournier, Director of IFP School’s Georesources and Energy Center, points out: “It was their hard work, incorporating all their energy, their enthusiasm for geosciences and reservoir engineering, their skills and team spirit that enabled them to win this prestigious professional award. They can all be proud individually and as a team for having carried the School’s colors high!”

Over the past ten years, IFP School has reached the podium of the Laurie Dake Challenge six times, including in 2019 when it won the world championship.

The School congratulates its students on this new achievement!
