CPGE Symposium on Subsurface Energy
The Center for Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering (CPGE) at The University of Texas, Austin hosted a two day symposium on the topic “Frontiers in Subsurface Energy” on March 26th and 27th, 2015. The symposium was held at the Pickle Research Campus in Austin and brought together recognized technical experts, senior decision-makers, and policy specialists in topical areas related to subsurface energy production.
The objective of the symposium was to review the current state-of-the-art technologies in each of the topical areas below, to discuss the remaining technical challenges, and to develop recommendations for future research in these areas. The topical areas were: Nanomaterials for Hydrocarbon Production; Water Management; Carbon Management; Well Design for Harsh Environments; and Enhanced Geothermal Systems.
There were four talks in each session presented by invited speakers. Each presentation was preceeded by an overview and followed by a Q&A and discussion period.
CPGE would like to extend our thanks to all of the speakers and guests who made this event a big success.
