  • Geology

  • Drilling & Reservoir

  • Finance

  • Processing

The workshops are presented by industry professionals and University of Aberdeen.

At the end of the day the teams received a copy of the Project Brief, a suggested resource list and necessary material.

2. Project Work - August to November at school

The project set is a comprehensive, in-depth and challenging series of 3 tasks to produce a Field Development Plan for the STEM field. The tasks cover subsurface work, production profiling, separator design, safety and the calculation of CO2 emissions. School teams are mentored by industry professionals throughout the project. Finally the teams complete a report on their work and submit this to TechFest.The reports are then forwarded to a panel of assessors for their appraisal.

3. Presentation Day

The teams each have a display board and a table to exhibit their work. The teams give a presentation to the panel of assessors and discuss their work informally with other visitors. The atmosphere is extremely supportive and previous students and assessors thoroughly enjoyed this occasion. Finally certificates and awards are presented.
