22 August 2019
Every year across BP offices around the world, challengers and interns have the opportunity to showcase their work to the wider BP community via our “Technofest” competition

The competition involves producing a poster to showcase a project or challenge they have been working on, and presenting it to a panel of judges. The competition is also an opportunity for employees to get a deeper insight into the valuable work that challengers and interns contribute to the business, as well as for challengers to enhance their professional networks with technical leaders and business management.


Winners from each country then compete virtually against their peers in an ‘eastern hemisphere’ or ‘western hemisphere’ competition, and the winners from this stage will go on to further compete for a grand prize at the global finals in London, including presenting to Bernard Looney, BP COO for production.

Technofest is a good opportunity to showcase the talents that we have in the organization and in the universities since we involve summer interns as well. It is a great opportunity for us to get a good overview of what young talents do across AGT.Martyn Smith,AGT vice president for reservoir development, one of the judges of the Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey (AGT) competition



The work I’ve seen at Technofest is top-quality. Our challengers and interns are working on projects which are meaningful to our business, and I believe that many of this year’s projects will go on for serious consideration.Scott Digert,US reservoir management and GPB East area RD manager
