A senior petroleum geologist with the University of Wyoming’s Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) will discuss some new geologic interpretations that may have an impact on improving oil production from the Muddy Formation in the Powder River Basin Tuesday, June 20, in Casper.
Stephen Whitaker will speak on “New Thoughts on the Muddy at Kitty Field: Ramifications for Regional Interpretations” from 7-8:30 a.m. in IMPACT 307’s Room 113 at 2435 King Blvd. The talk is part of EORI’s “Enhanced Oil Recovery Insights” series, focused on minimizing stranded oil in Wyoming reservoirs.
Coffee and breakfast snacks will be provided. Remote attendance also is available. The event is free, but registration is required by going to www.eoriwyoming.org/events/eori-events/eor-insights-1.
Whitaker is a highly experienced geologist who has worked with both major and independent oil companies involving numerous aspects of the oil industry. He operated his own oil company for 16 years, conducting exploration and enhanced oil recovery programs. He has written several publications related to oil exploration and development and has received awards for his presentations at regional, national and international technical conferences.
