Technical Class for Engineering Students

Neuquen, Argentina – September 11, 2020

GeoPark gave a technical talk to 70 students on “Monitoring and supervision in fields with secondary recovery” in coordination with the Comahue Student Chapter of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) on September 11.

In the fourth event of a series of talks, GeoPark engineer Sofia Malamud covered basic principles of waterflooding, recovery methods, operational efficiency of secondary recovery projects, monitoring and supervision, and pattern balancing, as well as sharing her own academic and professional experiences.

“GeoPark has been sharing with us its experience and knowledge, which are of great value to us as students nearing the end of the degree,” said Karen Quidel, a member of the steering committee of the SPE Comahue Student Chapter. Students from institutions elsewhere in Argentina and the region also attended.

As part of its mission to “Create Value and Give Back”, GeoPark promotes educational projects and activities in the communities that neighbor its operations, with the commitment of becoming the neighbor and partner of choice based on a sustainable relationship of learning and mutual benefit.
