Minus CO2 Challenge

A GREAT CHALLENGE IS COMING

The EAGE Green Fund is inviting all our student members from around the world to participate in the Minus CO2 Student Challenge. This competition aims to encourage innovation and environmental awareness amongst the next generation of geoscientists and engineers.

Enhance your scientific and technical knowledge

The world is changing – and the challenge of climate change is impacting the oil and gas business in many ways. As with other EAGE field challenges, we focus on a real field dataset bringing practical experience to help students with successful careers in applied geosciences. In the MINUS CO2 contest,  we challenge teams to work with a dataset of a carbon sequestration project. 

The Minus CO2 Challenge 2024 main topic will be ‘Geothermal Electrical Power Generation in the Netherlands’.

We invite university teams of three to five students to apply from 22 April to 3 July 2024 and take part in this innovative challenge, which has also received generous support from EAGE Green Fund.

Every team selected in the first round will receive a dataset to work with. They will have the opportunity to analyze the dataset and propose a project with zero-net C02 emissions.

Please find more information about this challenge here and complete the submission of the assignment.

If you have any further question, do not hesitate to contact us.

Minus co2 challenge

The EAGE Green Fund is inviting all our student members from around the world to participate in the Minus CO2 Student Challenge. This competition aims to encourage innovation and environmental awareness amongst the next generation of geoscientists and engineers.

Enhance your scientific and technical knowledge

The world is changing – and the challenge of climate change is impacting the oil and gas business in many ways. As with our other EAGE field challenges, we will focus on a real oilfield dataset that will provide practical experience that can help students develop successful careers in applied geosciences. In the Minus CO2 Student Challenge, we challenge teams to use a subsurface hydrocarbon resource but with zero net emissions of CO2 to the atmosphere. Any form of CO2 management may be used in association with the hydrocarbon resource model (eg. CO2 capture, CO2 storage, CO2 EOR or other renewable energy options).

We invite university teams of three to five students to apply from 22 April to 21 June 2024 and take part in this innovative challenge, which has also received generous support from EAGE Green Fund.

Every team selected in the first round will receive a dataset to work with. They will have the opportunity to analyze the dataset and propose a project with zero-net C02 emissions.

Every team that applies received an assignment, which is sponsored by Shell, to work with.

Your team will have the opportunity to propose a novel way of utilizing this resource with zero-net emissions.

Please complete the submission of the assignment and if you have any further question do not hesitate to contact us.
