AFBE-UK Scotland to host latest Real Projects event at Robert Gordon University

Posted by James Donaldson


The latest in a series of North Sea seminars that put the focus on industry issues and technology will take place in Aberdeen later this month.

The Real Projects event is hosted by social enterprise AFBE-UK Scotland, a not-for-profit organisation that encourages engineering as a career choice among under-represented groups.

Iko Oguche, a senior development engineer with experience in downhole monitoring, will give the talk at Robert Gordon University. He has been influential in the design of modelling tools and the analysis of downhole flow controls components for optimised production.

His talk will put the focus on the fundamentals and application of autonomous inflow control devices (AICD) for water and gas breakthrough or delay in oil wells. In addition, it will look at the advantages of various solutions and highlight success stories through case studies.

Dr Ollie Folayan, chairman of Aberdeen-based AFBE-UK Scotland, said: “Once again we are bringing practical, frontline knowledge to our latest Real Projects event. Iko Oguche has a broad range of expertise in this sector and we are looking forward to hearing this informative seminar.”

The event takes place at Sir Ian Wood Building (N305) from 6.30 to 8pm on Thursday, July 26 (2018). The talk is free but registration is required:

AFBE-UK Scotland is the Scottish division of AFBE-UK, which encourages young people, particularly those of black and minority ethnic (BME) origin, to pursue a career in the engineering sector.

The Scottish group runs around 20 events annually and has helped more than 800 pupils, students, graduates and young professionals across its three main programmes – NextGen, Transition and Real Projects.
