On 19-24 July 2016, Hungary hosted an international meeting of student members from AAPG chapters. It was organized by AAPG Szeged Student Chapter and AAPG Szeged Student Chapter. From the Poznań SC of the AAPG there were two students of the third and second year, respectively (Aleksandra Kaczmarek and Rafał Kiełczewski).
The meeting took place in two Hungarian cities: Szeged and Miskolc, and therefore it was divided into two parts. The first one was based on lectures about modeling of hydrocarbon fields. It was complemented with the visit in the Mineralogical Museum of Szeged University. It took place in Szeged beatuful major city in the south-east of Hungary.
To the meeting as instructors there were invited Dr. Stuart Harker from Edinburgh and other experts, including Hungarian geologists: Janos Blaho (with the lecture “Geology of Algyő HC field”) and Gergely Dabi (“The role of fluid inclusions in basin-modeling”). The second part of the event was devoted to presentation of the geology of the Bükk Mountains, located in the north of Hungary.
The program also included a tour to a storage room for drill-cores, and to the gas mine. In addition to the scientific and educational purposes of the meeting it was also organized for integration of chapters and students representing them. The event created also for the participants the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the culture of Hungary. We are very grateful and we thank for the invitation. We really liked the meeting and for sure it will be remembered by us for a long time.
