Members of the University of Kansas student chapter of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) are spending their spring break learning about the Marcellus and Utica by touring EQT production sites. Joining them are students from SPE Penn State. Together about 30 students from both groups are getting a firsthand look at EQT drilling and completions sites and say they’re gaining invaluable insight and education outside the classroom. It’s a bit different than a day at the beach and EQT is proud to have such dedicated young adults getting to know more about us and our industry!
In addition to the rig and completions site tours, the University of Kansas SPE Student Chapter also visited Penn State on March 22nd! We gave them a tour of the Penn State Campus and introduced the students to our amazing faculty, professors, and students.
We first gave them a tour of our brand new Baker Hughes PNG 480 Production Lab, and grad students also gave them a tour of the Energy Institute (Center for Quantitative Imaging).
After that, we invited the University of Kansas students to our meeting with Eclipse Resources! We listed to Eclipse talk about the technical accomplishments associated with drilling and completing the longest US onshore lateral well in Ohio called the Purple Hayes 1H. Purple Hayes 1H has a total depth of 27,048 ft and the lateral involved in the well is 18,544 ft.
