The winning team of the inaugural Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Europe Petro League is Team KAMA from the University of Aberdeen, the SPE announced Thursday. The team beat nine of theams of students studying oil and gas-related subjects to win a $3,120 (GBP 2,000) prize.

Team KAMA, which was awarded the prize Wednesday at the Offshore Europe 2013 conference, impressed a judging panel of leading industry professionals with its members’ technical knowledge of the oil and gas industry, the SPE said. The day-long competition saw case study rounds and quick-fire question and answer rounds.

SPE Europe Petro League Project Lead Oludare Elebiju commented in a statement:

"We would like to thank all of the students who entered this year’s Europe Petro League. The enthusiasm and determination of each team has truly contributed to the overall success of the competition. It is clear from the high level of interest we have received that the event has a long future ahead.  

"The winning team KAMA, has proven that [it deserved] the title and the students have really impressed the judges with their knowledge. They are not only taking home the prize money but also, more importantly, new connections made within the sector will increase their chances of employment when they complete their university courses. 

"Offshore Europe has provided an excellent forum for the Europe Petro League competition to be held, and given it the exposure needed to become a major student event that we aim to hold every two years."
