Date: 18 - 20 February, 2021

  Positioning Petroleum Engineers for the future of the Energy Industry


Every year, thousands of fresh University graduates are churned out of the system to augment the existing population of unemployed youths. Empowered with the hope of a very bright future, they storm into the industry, ready to take it on. However, with the current situation in the world, diversification of world energy demands from the conventional oil and gas as well as the current economy of our country, the industry is not as welcoming as it used to be in the past decade. What then is the hope for Petroleum Engineers? This Conference aims to provide insights on the way ahead in preparing young engineers for their future career given the transitioning nature of the conventional oil and gas industry. There has been a morph in the trend of the energy industry and to brace ourselves for this transition, we need to have the requisite skills to adapt to this change by adequate preparation. .
