Obi C Edmond Jnr is a Petroleum Engineering graduate student at the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering, Texas A&M University. Obi Edmond earned a BEng in Petroleum Engineering (First Class Honors) from Covenant University, Nigeria, in 2018 having been found worthy of character and learning. Obi Edmond has been an active member of SPE International since 2015 volunteering in various capacities such as social, technical, Petro quiz team, and served as the Treasurer of the SPE-Covenant University student chapter. Edmond has interned with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). His undergraduate thesis, which proffered an improved stability criterion for predicting severe slugging in offshore pipeline-riser systems was motivated from his industrial experience with the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG).
Jones Mueje Maju grew up in the Niger Delta area of West Africa. For the latter part of his years he has been in South West Texas where exploration, development and production of petroleum is the center of the local economy. His desire to pursue studies in oil & gas exploration and production dated far back to his passion and curiosity in geology as it relates to petroleum, ore and water. The process stages from the formation, extraction and the end use of petroleum was a mystery to his young mind – one he was determined to unfold. With this goal in sight, he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Geology from the University of Benin, Nigeria and an Associate Degree in Process/Petroleum Engineering Technology at Houston Community College.
Elsie Ladan is a graduate student presently pursuing a master's at the Harold Vance School of Petroleum Engineering, Texas A&M University. Her journey began early on when she discovered a penchant for natural resources through science classes and earth science documentaries. With support from family, she enrolled for a bachelor's program in Petroleum Engineering at the prestigious University of Ibadan. Having garnered sound work ethic from an internship experience with Schlumberger and several awards for academic excellence through her undergraduate studies, she emerged as the best graduating student for the class of 2017. In addition, she was recognized as the first female student from Northern Nigeria to graduate with a first class from the department of Petroleum Engineering.

This course covers the fundamental principles concerning how hydraulic fracturing treatments can be used to stimulate oil and gas wells. It includes discussions on how to select wells for stimulation, what controls fracture propagation, fracture width, etc., how to develop data sets, and how to calculate fracture dimensions. The course also covers information concerning fracturing fluids, propping agents, and how to design and pump successful fracturing treatments. Learn more about training courses being offered. Current and future SPE Section and Student Chapter leaders are invited to engage and share.
More than two dozen storage tanks holding crude oil, gasoline, and other contaminants ruptured or otherwise failed when Harvey slammed into the Texas coast, spilling at least 145,000 gal of fuel and spewing toxic pollutants into the air, according to an AP analysis of pollution reports. Measuring product in oilfield storage tanks can pose significant risks to workers if proper precautions are not taken. This video discusses the risks and ways they can be reduced to protect workers. Italian oil major Eni said on 18 April it had decided to temporarily shut down a treatment plant serving its biggest domestic oil field in southern Italy to meet a local order.
San Antonio-based Petro Waste Environmental (PWE) announced the opening of its newest state-of-the-art nonhazardous oil and gas waste landfill facility in Howard County, Texas. Milestone Environmental Services has announced the ground breaking for its new oilfield waste-disposal facility south of Midland, Texas.

There is increasing interest in drilling the Austin Chalk formation, with hopes that the latest unconventional development methods can deliver a boom in a play that has seen several over a 90-year history. The Austin Chalk play could go through a revival if the industry can view the formation through “a fresh set of eyes,” says EnerVest’s Tony Maranto.
