Participate in the 2022 Minus CO2 Challenge 

The most recent edition of the Minus CO2 challenge took place in 2021. Congratulations to the team of the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay winning this year’s challenge!

The MINUS CO2 challenge application is open, and we plan to invite the semi-finalist of the competition to the Geoscientists & Engineering in Energy Transition 2022 Conference. More information about the conference is available on the GET2022 website.

Application and selection process

The world is changing – and the challenge of climate change is impacting the oil and gas business in many ways. As with other EAGE field challenges, we focus on a real field dataset bringing practical experience to help students with successful careers in applied geosciences. In the MINUS CO2 contest,  we challenge teams to work with a dataset of a carbon sequestration project

We invite university teams of three to five students to apply from 28 March to 13 May to take part in this innovative challenge, which has also received support from EAGE Green Fund. 

To ensure a successful application you should be aware of the rules and procedures of the MINUS-CO2 challenge and a signed ‘Declaration of Academic Integrity should be attached to the application.  Please include a motivational letter why renewable energy is important in the future and how geoscientists and engineers can make the energy transition a reality.

Every team selected in the first round will receive a dataset to work with. They will have the opportunity to analyze the dataset and propose a project with zero-net CO2 emissions. 

 If you have any further questions do not hesitate to contact us via  students@eage.org.

Siddharth Misra

Award-Spinning-coin-

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.
