UNO Won 1st Place in Gulf Coast IBA Competition, April 16-17, 2015
The University of New Orleans’ Imperial Barrel Award team was selected first place winner of this year’s competition, held in Houston, Texas. UNO competed among ten universities in the Gulf Coast region. The final competition is in Denver May 29-31, prior to the AAPG Convention’s Opening Session and Awards Ceremony.
Over a year ago, NOGS and the local chapter of the Society of Independent Professional Earth Scientists (SIPES), helped underwrite the UNO Geology Department for a course in petroleum geology, taught by Toby Roesler—the winning team’s moderator. Congratulations to UNO’s IBA team!
