Apr. 20 - Jun. 25, 2021


The SPE Gulf Coast Section has teamed up with their friends at the SPE Calgary Data Science Engineering Analytics (DSEA) SIG, along with Untapped Energy, to organize a data event like no other!  Driven by the desire to use real data to solve a real problem, to elevate data literacy and to make new professional connections, all while having fun! 

The problem: 

Aged Oil and Gas wells represent an option for the transition to a low-carbon energy world and a future for drilling engineers.  Geothermal is a suitable approach. 

Joining this Geothermal datathon will bring you a: 

  • great energy industry dataset 
  • series of data science bootcamps for you to hone your data science skills. 
  • datathon competition to test and prove your skills. 
  • opportunities to meet and work with fellow data enthusiasts to solve real-world problems. 
  • series of great prizes
