Petroleum Engineering Students Win International PetroBowl Competition and OU Becomes First University to Hold Four Wins

A team of petroleum engineering students from the Mewbourne College of Earth and Energy at the University of Oklahoma are international champions after being named winners of the 2020 Society of Petroleum Engineers PetroBowl competition last week.
