Oil and Gas Festival 2018 (OGFEST’18) was a major event that was organized by the Society of Petroleum Engineers Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Student Chapter (SPE-UTM SC) from 16th October until 18th October 2018 with the theme of ‘Energising Future Engineers’ as an incentive to promote Johor as the future of oil and gas hub globally.

It has brought a future outlook for the students and industry where the industry can plan for the upcoming quarters through innovations by young future engineers. Basically, this event consisted of many sub-events such as professional talk, technical talk, competitions, exhibition, panel session and workshop which involved many oil and gas companies in Malaysia.

The competition itself had a total of six competitions which were Petrobrain Competition, Oil Rig Design Competition and Paper Presentation Competition, Energy Debate Competition, Power Plant Design Competition and Photo Contest opened for both undergraduate and postgraduate students from all over the world.
