UW’s Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute to Host 10th Annual Conference in Casper

June 7, 2016

For the 10th year, the University of Wyoming’s Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) will host its annual EORCO2 Conference in Casper July 12-14 at the Casper Events Center.

Industry professionals from across the state and country will learn about and discuss new, emerging research and technologies relevant to improved and enhanced oil recovery applicable to existing Wyoming oil fields.

There is no charge to attend the conference, but registration is encouraged, as space is limited. For more information regarding the conference or to register, visit the EORI website at

The nearly two full days of workshop sessions include: Reservoir Geology, Flow Through Porous Media, Chemical Floods, Reservoir Engineering, Federal CO2 Policy, Economics in the Oil Patch, A New Look at Wyoming Geology, and World Oil and Gas Situation. EORI’s new Interactive Data Platform also will be demonstrated.

Among the speakers and presenters are Mohammad Piri, the Wyoming Excellence Chair in Petroleum Engineering at UW; Steve Melzer of Melzer Consulting; State Treasurer Mark Gordon; and Vello Kuuskraa of Advanced Resources International.

The second day of the conference will include a legislative panel featuring Wyoming Senate President Phil Nicholas, Senate Majority Floor Leader Eli Bebout, Senate Vice President Drew Perkins and Steve Harshman, who chairs the House Appropriations Committee.

The annual conference is a collaboration among large and small operators, local representatives and industry stakeholders. The majority of the costs for the conference are covered by industry sponsors who support and invest in enhanced oil recovery.

One of the Centers of Excellence in UW’s School of Energy Resources (SER), the EORI works to help Wyoming and its energy producers recover stranded oil in depleted oil reservoirs as rapidly, responsibly and economically as possible. EORI is the only institution devoted to enhanced oil recovery in Wyoming oil fields. SER directs and integrates cutting-edge energy research and academic programs at UW and bridges academics and industry through targeted outreach programs.
