PetroCup World Student Olympics 2023 | Finals

The PetroCup World Student Olympics (PWSO) Finals took place from January 29-31, where students were challenged to develop digital oilfield over the course of three days.

This year's tournament saw students across five oil and gas universities from Russia, Middle East, and Southeast Asia.

The final tournament was also held online, providing a platform for students worldwide to join and demonstrate their skills and knowledge in field development.

Each team used PetroCup simulator, to simulate a wide array of oilfield activities.

Students were faced with a wide spectrum of challenges, which included addressing sophisticated engineering and geological complications, performing data analysis, and making key strategic decisions to promote field development even further.

The PWSO Finalist team displayed exceptional performance this year. Below are the results:
