The main focus of this workshop was in the general area of porous media flows. The workshop had presentations from the research groups that have been funded by the Center for Fundamentals of Subsurface Flow as well as contributed talks.
- Recovery of natural gas from unconventional reservoirs characterized by low permeability. Namely, research activities that aim at improving the current understanding of permeability distribution, connectivity, and flow pathways that can be used to improve reservoir models and field design.
- Sequestration of greenhouse gas and associated impurities (GGI) in geologic formations, e.g., deep saline aquifers and oil and gas reservoirs. Namely, research activities that aim at improving the current understanding of the underlying phenomena responsible for various GGI geologic storage mechanisms that can be used to develop or improve predictive modeling tools.

This workshop was dedicated to Professor Myron Allen on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Over the years Professor Allen has had an important impact on the education of several scientists at the University of Wyoming and this was an opportunity for this group of researchers to meet and discuss current research projects.
The workshop began at 8:15am on Monday, May 19 and concluded at 5:00pm on Wednesday, May 21. All meeting sessions were held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Laramie, Wyoming.
