Visit of The president of SPE international 2016

On 28th of October The president of SPE international 2016 and the Senior Executive Advisor of Baker Hughes – D. Nathan Meehan visited our university.

It was a truly a historical moment for Gubkin SPE Chapter. During his stay at the University, Nathan Meehan visited the student office of SPE. After that, a meeting was held with the board of the university and the students. The meeting was attended not only by students of Gubkin University, but also with students of Moscow State University, MIPT University and with representatives of the Mining University of Leoben.

Nathan presented his presentation, talked with the students about the importance of oil and gas in the global energy sector and held a motivational training, during which he shared his opinion on the current price of oil. In addition, it was presented the structure and the projects of our chapter and the MSU Chapter SPE. After the meeting the coordinator of the Gubkin SPE Chapter Vlada Streletskaya was awarded with the Young Member Outstanding Service Award for her outstanding contribution to the development of SPE. At the end students did not miss the opportunity to take a lot of selfies, or as we say in our chapter “spelfies.” The president of SPE International also has seen the 3D simulator at the Department of drilling and reservoir management center.

Nice to hear kind words in respect of our chapter. “Keep it up, Gubkin SPE chapter! You are certainly one of the best in the world. It is not important how many awards you have – what matters is what you do, what opportunities you give to the students and results you get. It is important that you are known all over the world! I saw a photo of your delegations in different countries and understand that it’s not just fun and games. Keep up the good work! and I’ll help you any way I can! “- Said Nathan.

Today our Gubkin University SPE Student Chapter – is a real brand.
