Agenda

Monday, April 16

08:30 - 10:00
01  Plenary Session Assembly Hall
Moderator(s) Larry Wayne Lake - The University of Texas At Austin
Speaker(s) Charles D McConnell - Executive Director, Energy and Environment Initiative, Rice University, Gary Arnold Pope - Texaco Centennial Chair in Petroleum Engineering, The University of Texas At Austin, Gordon R. Moore - Professor Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, University of Calgary, John A. Harju - Vice President for Strategic Partnerships, Energy & Environmental Research Center, University of North Dakota, Shauna Oppert - Research Geophysicist, Chevron Energy Technology Co.
IOR/EOR is a journey. The PRESENT builds upon the PAST and points towards the FUTURE, anticipating DISRUPTIONS but not knowing today exactly what they will be. In this plenary session leading thinkers in different aspects of enhanced oil recovery share their thoughts on the journey and what the future may look like in their subject area. Interaction – panelist to panelist, audience to panelist interaction, within the audience itself. Moderated by IOR Pioneer Larry Lake, The University of Texas at Austin, himself being a venerable contributor to advancing EOR. Feeding off each other's insights, and thought provoking interaction with attendees, one will get a vision for the IOR/EOR future. Be a part of that vision.
