The oil industry is still a future industry. Even though the oil price is low and many companies are downsizing, there are many opportunities. This is the subject for the student meeting at Alf & Werner Wednesday, September 6th. The meeting is organized in collaboration between University of Stavanger, Schlumberger and Stavanger Chamber of Commerce, where Centre Director Merete Vadla Madland is a member of the Resource Group for Energy.

Job opportunities

What job opportunities are there for the next decades? What will be required of those who will continue to develop this high-tech industry? Come and get updated, come and be inspired and join new contacts. 

The oil industry will remain Norway's main industry for the foreseeable future. The need for new technological solutions – and smarter ways to work – will be increasing. What opportunities, requirements and expectations will meet those who will work in the oil industry in the years to come? How will policymakers facilitate continued sustainable and competitive industry on the Norwegian continental shelf?

Petroleum students and everyone else who is keen on the future of oil, are invited to this combined professional and social meeting on Wednesday, September 6th, 19:00–21:00.

Meet the politicians

Entrepreneur and CEO Odd Skjærseth in West Group will share his experiences. West Group is a growth company that develops new technology in drilling and well service. He will talk about both the future opportunities in the industry and what qualities those seeking the industry should have.

You will also meet three young politicians from Rogaland: Tina Bru (H), Torstein Tvedt Solberg (Ap) and Iselin Nybø (V). They will be challenged on what oil and energy policy the government should take over the next four years.

The event has no attendance fee, but requires registration.
