Derrick is a prestigious Annual Oil and Gas Intellectual Competition that is conducted by Energy and Mineral Polytechnic (PEM) of Akamigas Cepu.
In the competition, Pertamina University has got new achievements. Firstly, are The Second and Third Winner of the Well Design Competition that each of which is won by Circu.id Team, consisting of Hafni Wahyu Wiharlan, Reifandi Redhiza, and Hapsoro Bagus from Petroleum Engineering and Al-Drake Team which is consisting of Yasir Fadhillah, Restu Gusti, and Arya Dwi Pangestika also from Petroleum Engineering.

“For the Well Design Competition mechanism, participants were given data logging to design the well to be ready to flow hydrocarbons. The challenge was to use the most efficient cost as possible. And for the Geothermal Power Plant Design Competition mechanism, we were asked to design surface facility to produce geothermal well,” Yasir said, representing the Pertamina University team.
Dean of the Faculty of Exploration and Production Technology, Prof. Dr. Rer. Nat. Awali Priyono expresses his proud towards those excellent students. “I am thankful for them for gaining new experience and achievements.
