This year, participants of the Congress will hear the opinion of the leading oil and gas companies on one of the most currently important topics - Arctic Offshore Oil and Gas Industry.
The task for the case is given to the participants a few days before the event. So, participants have enough time to solve the case before and after the events during the Congress.
This is an absolutely new object of the Congress. The main idea of it is to show the technological chain of the most important and current problems of oil and gas industry. Actually, ProfChain includes excursions to petroleum companies and their laboratories, where top specialists will tell you about new trends, research and impressive development.
Soft Skills Fair
The project consists of organizing several soft-skills blocks on the same space in parallel. In 2019, there were the following blocks: Improve your CV (specialists help participants with compiling a resume), Bringing the Science (experts talk about scientific activities), SPE (part of SPE), WPC (part of WPC), Find Your Internship (about PetroStage project), Gubkin Talks (interesting stories of specialists about their career path).
The purpose of the object is to create a communication platform with the companies, to help students navigate the world of the oil and gas industry, learn something new for themselves and determine their own path in their careers.
