PetroChallenge for Schools with OilSim



PetroChallenge is a two day educational event for either university or senior high school students, with the purpose of developing the students’ knowledge of the oil and gas industry and their interest in pursuing professional careers in the industry or relevant higher education choices.

PetroChallenge utilizes the upstream learning simulator, OilSim, in which teams compete and collaborate to discover and develop hydrocarbons. OilSim is also used by industry to train professionals in technical and non-technical disciplines like geology, geophysics, project management, strategy, decision making and teamwork. 

University students participate in challenges involving the whole upstream value chain, whereas events for schools have a one day training day and then an intense competition on day two involving the exploration challenges.
