Our Partnership with Cooper Energy

Gas explorer and producer Cooper Energy will fund one $20,000 scholarship for a student enrolling in petroleum engineering at The University of Adelaide and commencing their studies in 2021.

The successful student will receive $10,000 each year for the first two years of their course and have the opportunity to develop a career-enhancing relationship with the company.

Recognising the growing demand for engineering expertise in an industry that is leading our technological future, the South Australian Government has pledged to match industry-funded scholarships. This means that one additional scholarship will involve Cooper Energy. One will be named the Cooper Energy Playford Trust Petroleum Engineering Scholarship and the other will be named the SA Government/Cooper Energy Playford Trust Petroleum Engineering Scholarship.

  • concentration of effort and resources on opportunities where it has deep knowledge and expertise, principally the Australian basins and the commercialisation of gas.
