“The future of the planet depends on technology and innovation. We need to attract tech-savvy STEM millennials to the energy industry to harvest their amazing initiative, creativity and passion”, says Dr. Helge Hove Haldorsen.
He holds the position of Director General Statoil Mexico and President 2015 of The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
Wants to honour the STEM Teachers
Haldorsen is a former Professor in Industrial Mathematics and Lecturer at Stanford University in California. At ONS Young he wants to use the opportunity to put the teachers in the spotlight.
”I want to honour the super-important ‘Rock Stars’ of the energy industry: the STEM Teachers! And, I want to discuss the many exciting career opportunities for the next generation in energy. Also, I want to convey the huge sense of purpose you will feel lifting people out of poverty and raising living standards with the energy you help produce”, says Haldorsen.
Haldorsen will speak at Teachers’ Classroom on Monday 29 August.
Haldorsen can look back at an extensive career in the energy industry, including several roles in Norsk Hydro and various engineering positions at British Petroleum, Standard Oil of Ohio and ExxonMobil. He has also served on SPE’s Board of Director for three years, as well as being an SPE Distinguished Lecturer and Author. In 2013 Haldorsen was awarded the Rhodes Petroleum Industry Leadership Award by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
