The African Regional Student Paper Contest (ARPC) organized by the African Region of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) was held in Accra, Ghana on Friday, 16th March 2018. The event is a platform for students to present their technical research papers in petroleum engineering related areas. There are three categories: undergraduate, MSc and Ph.D. Miss Hajara Kabeer Abdulfatah of Nile University of Nigeria Abuja was among the ten students that presented in the undergraduate category before a panel of judges drawn from experienced industry professionals and academicians worldwide. The great news is that our own Hajara took the 1st position in her category. This means she will represent Africa at the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE) to be held in Dallas, Texas, USA from 24-26 September 2018. A very big congratulation to Hajara for making Nile University and indeed Nigeria proud and wishing you greater success in your future endeavours.
