Yogyakarta — The Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) joined Geoweek 2017 held by Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) last mid-September. In this event, SKK Migas opened a booth filled with materials to introduce the upstream oil and gas industry.

Geoweek 2017 is part of a series of events organized by Department of Geology of UGM and Geology Engineering Student Association of UGM. The series of events include Career Talks, Earth-Themed Quiz Contest, National Seminar on Earth, Congress of Indonesian Soil Water Experts Union, and Society Projects. During the event, SKK Migas’ booth located in Graha Sabha Pramana was visited by many students who are eager to know more about the upstream oil and gas industry.

SKK Migas regularly visits campuses to introduce the upstream oil and gas industry to students and academic community. In early August, SKK Migas participated in the Papua Engineering Expo. This activity is part of the National Discussion XXVIII of Indonesian Civil Engineering Student Communication Forum.

Visits to campuses were also conducted by SKK Migas’ representative offices, for example, a visit to Universitas Widya Gama Mahakam Samarinda (UWGM) in Samarinda and Institut Teknologi Kalimantan (ITK) by SKK Migas Representative Office for Kalimantan and Sulawesi (Kalsul) Region last mid-September. During these visits, speakers from SKK Migas and KKS Contractors presented information to introduce the upstream oil and gas industry. (alf)
