Congratulations to University of Kasdi Merbah Ouargla (UKMO). The team reported their participation in an event at the North Africa Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (NAPEC) in Oran. The team was included in the program of young professionals where many universities exhibited their projects. The UKMO Drillbotics team was awarded first place as the best technical poster and scientific project in North Africa by NAPEC, Schlumberger and OilServ representatives. This led to many companies willing to sponsor the team. DeepFast, a Chinese company that specializes in drill bits manufacturing agreed to make three diamond drill bits that minimize the vibration effect and prevents stick slip. The team plans to try out these bits in the test phase leading up to the Celle competition.
