University and Schlumberger set example of academia and industry collaboration
Texas A&M University at Qatar recognized Schlumberger as an essential knowledge-sharing partner and industry collaborator on 21 January at an event at the University's Engineering Building at Education City. The event also gratefully acknowledged Schlumberger's donation of a suite of software that enables the University's students to train and further improve their skills on reservoir modeling and history matching, as well as work on integrated solutions from exploration to production.
The recognition was part of a speaking engagement by Dr. Jeff Spath, the 2014 president of the Society of Petroleum Engineers and Schlumberger vice president for Industry Affairs.The longtime collaboration between the University and Schlumberger has focused on research, educational support and an exchange of expertise, especially in the areas of reservoir simulation and oil and gas production.
