STORE Partners with Chevron and Denbury Resources to Train Petroleum Engineers from University of Stavanger
STORE members Jon Olson, Hilary Olson and Vanessa Nuñez-Lopez were contracted by Chevron to put on an educational workshop for 50 visiting students from the University of Stavanger who spent a week in Houston, Texas learning more about U.S. oil and gas operations. Graduate students from the Dept. of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering (Iona Precious Williams and Li Ji) helped deliver the workshop on January 19, 2012 at Chevron's office. In addition, Denbury Resources partnered with STORE to host the students at a field trip of the Hastings Field, south of Houston.
Students from the University of Stavanger spent the morning working a STORE problem set on Storage of CO2 in Geological Formations, followed by an afternoon field trip to Denbury's Hastings Field.
