Two UW Faculty Members Receive Anadarko Fellowships
October 7, 2013 — Barry Brewer, Department of Management and Marketing assistant professor, and Dongmei Li, Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering assistant professor, are this year’s recipients of Anadarko Fellowships for University of Wyoming faculty.
An endowment, provided by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, funds the award for UW junior tenure-track faculty members. Offered through the School of Energy (SER) Resources, the fellowships recognize sustained excellence in energy scholarship and an outstanding record of contribution to the energy sector.
“The fellowships promote innovative and entrepreneurial research in areas aligning with Anadarko’s energy portfolio,” says Don Roth, SER associate director for academics. “These areas include, but are not limited to, oil and gas, environmental stewardship and reclamation, transportation, regulation and policy, and health and safety.”
Brewer says his project will examine supply chain responsibility during oil and gas exploration and production.
“This research project will examine the factors and conditions that motivate the assignment of supply chain responsibility within energy organizations,” he says. “Additionally, it will examine supply chain performance to determine if the assignment of responsibility impacts exploration and production outcomes.”
Dongmei says her project aligns well with Anadarko’s energy portfolio of untraditional reservoir development using cutting edge technologies.
“Technological advances, especially nanotechnology, are projected to be a game changer/enabler for the next phase breakthrough in petroleum engineering, such as shale oil exploration and enhanced oil recovery,” she says.
