Society of Petroleum Engineers to host symposium

The University of Texas of the Permian Basin student chapter of the Society of Petroleum Engineers is hosting a symposium titled “Optimize the Unconventional” from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday at the Center for Energy and Economic Diversity, 1310 North Farm to Market Road 1788.

This one day event will include more than a dozen Permian Basin oil and gas operators who will make technical presentations covering many aspects of petroleum engineering, a news release said.

Unconventional is a loose term widely used in the oil industry to refer to hydrocarbons (oil/natural gas) recovered from source rocks and very tight reservoir rocks, the release said.

The presentations made during the symposium represent state-of-the-art techniques when it comes to unconventional reservoirs operations. Students will have an opportunity to link what they learn here at UTPB with what is carried out in the field, the release said.
