The Petroleum Engineering Summer School (PESS) has been operating within the aca-demic program of advanced studies of the Inter-University Centre Dubrovnik (IUC) for thir-ty years (first PESS was in 1987).

PESS workshops, which are held in June every year, are organized by the Faculty of Mining, Geology & Petroleum Engineering of the University of Zagreb. Topics covered by the PESS are contemporary technical, technological, environmental and economic is-sues in field of oil & gas industry and energy industry in general.

The mission of the Petroleum Engineering Summer School is the exchange of knowledge at advance academic and expert level, offering the extensive possibilities for international collaboration of the professionals in the oil & gas industry.

The workshops are organized as lectures followed by professional discussions. The offi-cial language of the PESS is English. Outstanding professors and experts from the USA, Europe, and other regions participate as guest speakers or lecturers.

Long-term collaboration in organizing the Petroleum Engineering Summer School has been established with university professors from the USA (Louisiana State University, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, the Colorado School of Mines, Massachusetts Insti-tute of Technology (MIT), the University of Oklahoma, the University of Tulsa, Texas A&M University), Austria (Innsbruck University, Montan University of Leoben), Hungary (Mis-kolc University, University of Szeged), Russia (Gubkin State University, Moscow, St Pe-tersburg State University, St. Petersburg State University of Economics and Finance), Romania (Petroleum and Gas University-Ploesti), the Netherlands (TU Delft), Venezuela, Iraq (University of Sulaimani) and Malaysia (University of Technology Petronas).

Furthermore, a number of experts from leading industrial corporations were included in performance of the programs, like INA, ConocoPhillips, Statoil, Schlumberger, Total, E-On, ENI, OMV, MOL, Lukoil, and other.
