Dalhousie’s IBA team would like to invite you to mix and mingle with us at The Palomino Smokehouse on Friday the 27th of March. We will be celebrating the accomplishments of this year’s seven competing IBA teams including (in no particular order): University of Alberta, University of Calgary, Queen’s University, University of Western Ontario, McMaster University, Memorial University, and our house team Dalhousie University (Dawson Energy). Be sure to RSVP here.
For those of you who aren’t aware, the Imperial Barrel Award (IBA) is an intensive petroleum-based competition, which is run annually by teams of undergraduate and graduate geoscientists from universities across Canada. Participants are given a real-world dataset and asked to demonstrate their knowledge of the local stratigraphy, structure, and petroleum system in order to identify an efficient production strategy. The teams are then asked to pitch their play to a panel of industry professionals to compete for first place, and the chance to represent the Canada Region against other leading teams from around the globe.
