Young-Offshore Site Investigation and Geotechnics Launch

Lecture Theatre 207, Skempton Building, Imperial College, ImperiaI College Road, Kensington, London SW7 2BB

24 October, 2018



The OSIG Committee is pleased to announce the finalised programme for the launch event for Y-OSIG. We will have an introduction by Mick Cook (SUT Council Member and Treasurer) and Andy Barwise (OSIG Chairman) followed by a stimulating afternoon of presentations from 11 young professionals on a wide range of subjects.

While the judges deliberate, Andy Barwise will lead a discussion on how Y-OSIG could work. All young offshore ‘geo’ professionals are invited to attend and discuss what they would like from Y-OSIG and how they could be involved.

The judges will then present the awards, and we will then adjourn to the Hoop and Toy for refreshments, kindly provided by our sponsors.

1st: £250 2nd: £175 3rd: £100
