Luis and Mikael are happy to be top ranked

Drillbotics is an international competition between universities organized by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). The challenge is to design, build and successfully implement a fully functional drilling rig at lab scale in order to perform fully autonomous directional drilling through a rock sample. The aim of the competition is to promote the application of digital solutions and autonomous systems into drilling operations.  This will bring innovation and technology development from the academy which can be applied at an industrial scale

The Dream Team: Jarle Ness, Mikaela Solberg, Henrik Helgeland and Luis Alvarez

Final tests will be held in May and June of 2022 in Houston and Celle. The Team consist of Mikaela Solberg, Luis Alvarez, Jarle Ness and Henrik Helgeland. Congratulations!
