SPE’s flagship competition matches SPE Student Chapter teams against one another in a fast-paced quiz competition covering technical and non-technical aspects of the oil and gas industry. Teams from six regional qualifiers are seeded through to the final. Competitions take place in the Asia Pacific, Africa, Europe, Middle East, North America and South America and Caribbean before the final which takes place at the Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE).


To broaden the geographical diversity of the PetroBowl question set, we invite volunteers globally to contribute their questions by participating in a question writing session in your region. When question writing sessions are set up in your area we will send you all details for you to attend. If you have a group of people who want to attend and would like to set up your own session please contact us as

PetroBowl question contributors must be

  • SPE Professional members in good standing (students are not eligible to partake)
  • Preferred previous experience in similar style contests and understanding of the question structure (full instructions will be provided to all volunteers)
  • Personal interest in the academic development of university students


PetroBowl question contributors must have the technical expertise to produce high competency level questions. Questions can cover any technical speciality, knowledge, or historical information about the industry or SPE. All questions will be reviewed before being considered to be used at PetroBowl and may be rejected without notice.
