A 500 Level Petroleum Engineering student of Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State, Zainab Titus, has emerged first at the 2015 SPE Africa Region Students Technical Paper contest.
The contest took place on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at the Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda.
She came first after a rigorous process in which the SPE considered over 170 submitted abstracts from African students in various universities across the continent.
From this, twelve (eight in the undergraduate category and four in the postgraduate category) were successful and invited in an all-expense paid to present their works at Makerere University, in Kampala, Uganda.
She presented an abstract on “Analytical Model for Improving Completion Efficiency and Production Optimisation,” a newly developed diagnostic tool with wide industry applications.
However, the first place winners in both categories would represent Africa at the Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition in Texas, USA in September 2015.
