Petroleum News

The American Association of Drilling Engineers Alaska chapter has confirmed another successful Fin, Feather, Fur, Food Festival. The annual event was held May 16 at Kincaid Park. Out of 24 participating teams Cameron - TSA took first place for the best dish, Burgoo BBQ, the BP Wells Team took second place and the MI Swaco team took third. The attendees voted for the best dessert, which went to Unique Machine’s apple pie. Three judges determined the winner of the Showmanship Award, and the unanimous choice went to the Schlumberger “Schlumberstones”.  The Nordic-Calista “Nordic Vikings” were the first runner up. Charities receiving donations from the proceeds are Beans Café, Downtown Soup Kitchen and Kid’s Kitchen. Scholarships and Knowledge Box Scholarships are awarded in the fall.

The AADE was founded in New Orleans in 1978 and is made up of an affiliation of nine independent chapters, including Alaska, with over 5000 members that are licensed and governed by an AADE National Board. The Knowledge Box is a traveling exhibit showcasing the many aspects of the oil and gas industry, including teacher resources, hands-on activities and interactive lessons correlated to state and National Science Standards. The curriculum is geared toward all grade levels and will be the organization’s next national initiative.
