Carter Henderson, a junior Aggie petroleum engineering student, obtained 3rd place in the Student Paper contest held at the 5th Annual ‘East MeetsWest International Student Petroleum Congress and Career Expo’. The contest was held in Krakow, Poland last April and gathered 22 students of undergraduate and graduate level from all over the world displaying their technical work. First and second place were awarded to Master level students from the University of Texas and the University of Leoben in Austria.
Carter’s project started last fall as part of the SPE Mentorship Program working along with Ernesto Valbuena, a PhD candidate in our department. The program is intended to provide guidance and tools for undergraduate students to develop their Student Paper Contest work. Combined with his internship experience, Carter worked in the integration of surface and subsurface models to evaluate liquid yield production in tight gas reservoirs.
The Texas A&M PE Department and AGH University of Science and Technology Student Chapter kindly supported Carter’s attendance to the four-day long conference in Poland. Over 100 students from 30 countries joined the congress to share ideas and learn more about the energy industry. The conference included several technical and networking activities to disseminate knowledge and inspire future leaders.
