Join us for SPE-KSA’s petrothon covering three diverse aspects relevant to our energy industry: youth, sustainability, and digital transformation. SPE Energy Dynamics Petrothon , SPEED, is a unique platform that brings SPE community together to learn new skills, build amazing projects, and share ideas. SPEED aims to bring together multiple teams from diverse disciplines to tackle one of the three important challenges over a period of two days.
The team will get the opportunity to consult with subject matter experts to come up with their proposed solutions. The winning ideas/solutions will be based on three elements:
Innovation: How innovative and groundbreaking is the solution? And whether or not the solution used novel techniques?
Viability: Can we actually implement the solution? Is it realistic and original?
Benefits: How beneficial is it? And is there a potential to scale the solution in terms of social or economical value?
The winning solution will be potentially endorsed by our champions: Saudi Aramco’s Young Leader Advisory Board, King Salman Energy Park, and Saudi Aramco’s Upstream Digital Transformation.
