Our EVOLVE team, The Ragin-Razorbacks, consisting of three students from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (Mark Mlella, Olawale Ariyibi, and Samsideen Ajala) and one student from the University of Arkansas (Lanre Aboaba) made their debut at the SEG EVOLVE Student Contest. The competition was during the SEG Annual meeting at San Antonio, Texas, September 15th -20th, where over 20 Universities from all over the world presented their Investment Opportunities after three months of tireless major exploration work.
During the two days’ program, our team has been recognized as the winner of the “Best Investment Opportunity (NZ)” for presenting their prospects at offshore New Zealand. Our team also emerged as the only team to bag another two awards “Best Basin Modeling” and “Most Creative Powerpoint” through a general ranking among all participating Institutions.
The EVOLVE program, sponsored by Halliburton through SEG, offers students direct experience in conducting multidisciplinary subsurface integration projects using real-world seismic, wireline, core, production, and other data. Using iEnergy® the Halliburton Landmark DecisionSpace Platform, and local software (Petrel and IHS Kingdom), students utilize modern technology through experiential learning to find the best investment opportunity. https://seg.org/EVOLVE
