To our friends at Schlumberger - Thank you for coming to the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and providing the Petrel Training for our students. It is greatly appreciated by the students and faculty to have such a service provided. This training helps the UTEP students not only be better prepared for their research projects and the IBA competition, but also for the work place after graduation. The students felt that they learned a lot from Randy Justin and truly enjoyed his style of teaching.
Thank you again for providing this opportunity to UTEP!
