The 2016 IBA competition for the Africa Region successfully concluded on 12 March in Cairo, Egypt, following a very rigorous and healthy competition amongst 25 student teams from across Africa.

The year's competition welcomed new student entrants from the National Polytechnic Institut Felix Houphouet Boigny of Yamoussoukro (INP-HB), Cote D'voire. Other participating teams represented Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Cote D'Ivoire, Nigeria, Uganda and South Africa.

Following the successfully completed Africa Region competitions, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife, Nigeria, won the Africa Region competition and represented the Region in the global finals of the competition held in Calgary, Canada.

The IBA program continues to create the opportunity for students to acquire robust technical, leadership and presentation skills, presenting a conducive environment for healthy interaction, networking and exchange of ideas among students and industry professionals.

AAPG appreciates Agiba Petroleum, Egypt, Transglobe Egypt & the AAPG Egypt YP team for contribution to the success of the finals of the competition in Cairo, and all mentors and judges who contributed to the success of all stages of the competition.
