With the support of the EAGE Latin America Team, we are proud to let you
know the first ever digital Student Lecture Tour takes place this week.
This week is rather different than a regular Student Lecture Tour. Usually,
Student Lecture Tours bring experts from the EAGE community to
universities around the globe. With campuses and universities closed and
travel restricted, this means the traditional Student Lecture Tour series
would not be viable.
With the support of our new student lecturer, Mr. Yucel Akkutlu, we were
able to turn this around by making his SLT the first ever online tour. This
week, students from Argentina, Bolivia, Mexico, Brazil and Colombia will
have the opportunity to participate in the lecture: ‘Resource Assessment
and Envirnmental Considerations of Petroleum Recovery from Organic-rich
This online format will be free & open to all students. We were pleased to
see high interests in the course, with many of the online sessions already
We want to thank Mr. Akkutlu for helping us to bring this SLT series online
in such a short amount of time and we hope we can repeat this with SLTs in
the near future.
