Advanced Academics
  • We had 17 students rep Southwest at the annual PetroChallenge at Houston Community College/Alief Campus in February 2020.
    Luckie is his name and running an oil/gas company is his game! Michael Luckie's team placed 3rd with almost $35 billion in assets. They won $600.
    Luis Nieto's team won most Community Service Relation points, based on their community service project. They won $100.
    There were 200 students competing in 50 teams. Students were randomly placed with students from Houston schools to form a company & work together through the entire upstream/midstream process. They read geological maps/seismic data, negotiated with other companies and created a community service project. This event was sponsored by IPAA/PESA, Occidental Petro and Schlumberger.
