81st EAGE Conference & Exhibition 2019
Embrace Change - Creativity for the Future
The Laurie Dake Challenge
The Laurie Dake Challenge is created with the aim to promote cross‐disciplinary geoscience and engineering integration within universities. Each participating university will have a multi‐disciplinary team of full time geoscience and petroleum engineering students, with a maximum of one PhD student per team.
The competition starts with an assignment prepared by each team, after this first round ten teams will be selected to submit the Field plan, the jury will select the six finalist teams. All teams work with the same data set, provided by BP this year.
The six winning teams will be supported with three travel grants to present their field plan to an expert jury during the 81st EAGE Conference & Exhibition at 2 June 2019 in London, UK.
Teams can consist of full‐time students from some or all of the following disciplines:
- Reservoir engineering
- Production engineering
- Petroleum economics
- Petroleum Engineering
Integration is the key!
How to participate in the Laurie Dake Challenge
Universities are invited to participate in the Laurie Dake Challenge with a multidisciplinary team of 3 to 5 students (one PhD student per team allowed). The competition includes three selection rounds that are further explained below. To enter the competition each team is required to submit an assignment on a certain topic.
All universities are invited to participated in this competition, details we be published soon and the time frame of the competition is described below:
|Application and submission first assignment||10 October to 21 December 2018|
|Semi-Finalist selection||21 January 2019|
|Second Round Submission||18 March 2019|
|Finalist announcement ( 6 team selected to present the final in London)||1 April 2019|
|Final presentation slides submission||20 May 2019|
|Final Development plan presentation in London||2 June 2019|
|Announcement of the winner in the opening ceremony||3 June 2019|
Every team that applies will receive a data set, which is sponsored by Shell, to work with. They will have the opportunity to analyze and interpret an exploration data set of a discovered hydrocarbon resource.
The first assignment should be submitted by 21 December 2019.
In this first round, the best ten teams will be selected for the next round of selection.
Please complete the submission of the assignment and if you have any further question do not hesitate to contact Rosmery Gonzalez
The ten still standing teams are required to start working with the data they received and; pitch your development plans in a 3-minute video.

To select the best 6 teams that we will invite to the finals on Sunday 2 June in London, the judges have decided to organize an interim review:
The video should be submitted no later than Monday 18th March (12:00 UTC +1)
The pitch interim review will result in the selection of the 6 finalist teams that will receive travel grants and free tickets to 81st EAGE Conference & Exhibition 2019 !
Requirements of the video:
- Acceptable quality visual and sound Landscape orientation
- The duration of the video should NOT be longer than 3 minutes
Remember that you pitch your field development plan to BP Company!
Teams selected in the Final round :
EAGE invites three team members of each of the six finalist university teams to come to the EAGE Conference & Exhibition in London to present their findings in front of an expert Laurie Dake Challenge jury. Therefore, each team will receive three travel grants (including free registration as a full student delegate during the conference). The presentations will be judged by 8 to 10 jury members, all with their own expertise.
All finalist teams are required to submit their Laurie Dake Challenge Development plans and the presentations a few weeks before the finals. The Laurie Dake development plans must include the following:
• Well log analysis
• Structural model
• Identified flow units
• Static reservoir model property modelling
• Dynamic reservoir model
• Forward (appraisal and) development plan
