Petroleum engineering faculty from the Colorado School of Mines recently gave a presentation at The Oil and Gas Conference in Denver, where countless leaders in the industry gathered to exchange ideas.
Enercom Inc. hosted the event, “the biggest gathering of energy CEOs in the industry,” according to CNBC.
The faculty included adjunct professor Will Fleckenstein and assistant department head Jennifer Miskimins. Their presentations were about how shale technologies will be used in the future.
Mike Vincent, an independent frac consultant, was also presenting at the conference. He has joined Mines for a variety of events and projects before the conference.
More specifically, Fleckenstein spoke about how environmental developments and shale technologies will change in the future. New technology will help engineers to make better risk analysis, better designs and better overall green completions models.
Miskimins’ topic was a detailed view of how new technology, like fiber optics, will help raise treatment optimizations and efficiency for the industry.
There were several students from the school at the conference. Most of them are studying petroleum engineering for their degrees. Most of them volunteered at the event to recruit others for the school.
A full webcast of the faculty’s presentation is available online.
