EAGE Announces Third Minus CO2 Challenge

2021 Application Window Now Open

The application window for the 2021 EAGE Minus CO2 Challenge has just been opened. The prestigious challenge, in which teams from around the globe compete on a project related to energy transition and climate change, is accepting submissions up to 30 September. Students have the chance to win the grand prize of €2000,– so get your team together today.

Teams can apply here.

Offshore Canada focus of 2021 Challenge

This year’s assignment will take the Minus CO2 Challenge to the Western Hemisphere, as we’re focussing on the carbon sequestration potential of the Scotian Margin, Nova Scotia, Canada. Subsurface carbon sequestration is one of the key ways how (prospective) geoscientists and engineers can contribute to making the energy transition a reality, so we’re excited to see student teams take a shot at this year’s challenge!

How to apply

Student teams interested in participating are asked to do so by submitting a motivational letter and declaration of academic integrity by 30 September. The motivational letter should set out the team’s vision on why the energy transition is important and how geoscientists and engineers can make the energy transition a reality.

What’s at stake

Participating teams have a chance to win to €2000,–, in addition to international visibility through EAGE’s media and the opportunity to connect to leading experts from the community working on these challenges.

Minus CO2 Challenge and the EAGE Green Fund

The EAGE Minus CO2 Challenge is made possible through the work of the Offshore Energy Research Association (OERA) – a non-profit funded by the Nova Scotia Department of Energy, and funded through the EAGE Green Fund. The Green Fund was established in 2010 and has supported numerous projects since its inception.

Siddharth Misra


Prof Dr Siddharth Misra’s research focuses on improving subsurface characterization and prospect evaluation for the exploration of hydrocarbons, minerals and water resources.

His major contribution is in the theory of electromagnetic responses of geological formations to various charge polarization phenomena. The theory has enabled him to introduce a multi-frequency electromagnetic log-inversion technique to remove dielectric effects for improved estimation of hydrocarbon pore volume.
