MPGE Hosts Indian Students

Twenty-four students along with one faculty from Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU) in Gandhinagar, India visited OU’s Norman campus between July 5 and July 27 as part of PDPU’s International Exposure Program. The goal of the program was to provide students an experience typical of what is common for our own students each semester. They attended seminars on┬áReservoir Rock Properties, Unconventional Reservoirs, Geostatistics, Drilling, and Formation Damage. As part of the curriculum, students were introduced to petroleum engineering labs including those at MPGE’s Well Construction Technology Center (WCTC) while studying with Professor Subhash Shah. They also took field trips to Halliburton and the Arbuckle Mountains, where they examined geological formations.

MPGE staff member Dalton Brasington played host and guide to our visitors. Dalton arranged lodging, meals, transportation, and cultural and social activities. The group stayed in Traditions and dined in Couch Cafeteria, which gave them a true OU student experience. In addition to their academics, students enjoyed visits to the Fred Jones, Jr. Museum and Art, Sam Noble Museum, and the OKC National Memorial and Museum, as well as shopping at Penn Square Mall and bowling and laser tag at HeyDay Entertainment.
