UT PGE e-Newsletter - Spring 2011
UT PGE Professor Dr. Kishore Mohanty plans to launch a new Gas Enhanced Oil Recovery project that will feature an “all-star team” of 10 faculty members, who will each offer their niche expertise, to address some of the key issues of Gas EOR (GEOR).
UT PGE wishes to honor the memory of Charles Simmons, BSPE ’48, who passed away earlier this year. Charles was an unwavering advocate for the oil and gas industry and inventor of the perforation ball sealer process that substantially boosted oil and gas recovery.
In the first seven months of 2011, he will travel almost 42,000 miles, spanning four different continents – that is almost enough mileage to completely circle the globe twice. From the hot and humid weather in Malaysia to the bitter cold winter in Calgary, Alberta, Dr. Larry Lake has covered the hemispheres.
