The EVOLVE program offers students direct experience in conducting multidisciplinary subsurface integration projects using real-world seismic, wireline, core, production, and other data. Using iEnergy® the Halliburton Landmark DecisionSpace Platform, and local software (Petrel and IHS Kingdom), students utilize modern technology through experiential learning to find the best investment opportunity.
Project management, teamwork skills, and business values are honed within the context of exploration, reservoir appraisal, field development planning, and production enhancement scenarios. The program also links experienced mentors to student teams, empowering the participants to solve the types of realistic challenges the students will encounter when they start working.

What is EVOLVE?
EVOLVE consists of open-ended exercises that have no prepared answers. The emphasis for students is not on the “right answers” but on using available data to think carefully and ask the right questions. Students, regardless of their level at the start, can expect to be continuously challenged and to see significant improvement in their:
- Technical insight
- Understanding of modern workflows
- Skills in applying modern workflows
The goal of EVOLVE
EVOLVE prepares participants to launch and advance their careers in the rapidly developing and multidisciplinary geophysics profession by building their confidence and bringing them closer to the goal of becoming fearless explorers. The program incorporates the industry’s long established values by encouraging thoroughness, thoughtfulness, and stewardship of investors’ funds while maintaining a high level of professionalism and integrity. EVOLVE establishes a noncompetitive team environment that fosters collaboration and global participation.
