Australian School of Petroleum Research Seminars 2018

These seminars highlight research being conducted by researchers within the Australian School of Petroleum (ASP) and visitors to the ASP. Presentations will cover a range of disciplines focused around petroleum engineering and petroleum geology, with other areas of research expertise including petroleum management and decision making, and developments in learning and teaching. Whilst presentations will include details of new research findings and thinking, they will also be accessible to a non-specialist (i.e. mixed engineering and geoscience) audience.

When: Thursday lunchtimes, 12.10pm – 1.00pm

Where: Ground floor of the Santos Petroleum Engineering Building, Room G13.

Weekly seminars will continue until November.
