A group of OU SPE members traveled to Romania with Dr. Catalin Teodoriu this winter break. While taking a graduate course in drilling, they also had a chance to experience some genuine Romanian cuisine and visit a number of attraction sites. The team also met another student chapter SPE Upgploiesti !
The objective of this course is to provide petroleum engineering students with a unique intercultural experience by learning, together with local students, about the reliability and maintenance of oil equipment in one of the oldest oil producing country worldwide. The course is focusing on understanding the proper way to select and make use of drilling equipment such as drilling rigs, workover rigs, pumping units and other drilling and workover hardware.
