CPGE2014 Research Showcase
Austin, November, 2014 - On November 6th and 7th, the Center for Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering (CPGE) at the University of Texas at Austin hosted a two day meeting showcasing the current research being performed within CPGE.
Research presentations and posters spanned a wide range of topics in subsurface resource characterization and engineering ranging from nano-materials for enhanced hydrocarbon production to results from field trials of enhanced recovery processes.
Graduate students, post-doctoral research fellows, research associates and faculty members also shared exciting new discoveries in all aspects of subsurface engineering and characterization.
Each of the four sessions (Pore-scale modeling, Integrated reservoir characterization, Geomechanical interactions in the subsurface, and Enhanced recovery of hydrocarbons) featured talks by researchers supported by the Center and there was a poster session Thursday evening.
There were two awards for best student presentations: Ripudaman Manchanda (Dr. Sharma’s PhD candidate), and Yashar Mehmani (Dr. Balhoff’s PhD candidate, pictured at right with Dr. Hilary Olson, Director of Education, Training and Outreach, CPGE).
