Imperial Barrel Award

AAPG's Imperial Barrel Award Program (IBA) is an annual prospective basin evaluation competition for geoscience graduate students from universities around the world. The program is rigorous and contributes to AAPG's mission of promoting petroleum geoscience training and advancing the careers of geoscience students. Since 2013 the University of Coimbra participates in this global competition in Prague (Czech Republic) with a team of five students advised by the Director of the Geosciences Center, Rui Pena dos Reis.
