A fixture of Wyoming’s oil and gas industry for nearly a quarter of a century will continue under the leadership of the University of Wyoming’s Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI).
According To a UW news release, starting this year, EORI has committed to host the Wyoming Oil and Gas Fair, an annual event started in 1997. EORI will take the reins from Dave and Kathy Hutton, who have managed the event for much of its history.
“We are very humbled by Dave and Kathy Hutton’s willingness to allow EORI to carry forward the legacy that is the Wyoming Oil and Gas Fair,” EORI Director Steve Carpenter said. “Our goal is to offer Wyoming’s oil and gas industry a premier conference event, focused on educating, engaging and mobilizing industry and state leadership to help identify problems and solutions in order to blaze a path forward and actively shape Wyoming’s energy future.”
The COVID-19 pandemic caused the cancellation of last year’s Oil and Gas Fair. Because of continued uncertainty related to the pandemic, it’s likely that this year’s event will be held virtually. Information about the event will be shared as details are finalized.
Those with questions or seeking additional information should email Lon Whitman, EORI’s technical outreach manager, at email@example.com.
As one of the Centers of Excellence in UW’s School of Energy Resources, EORI facilitates meaningful and measurable increases in recoverable reserves, and production of oil and natural gas in Wyoming that may otherwise not be realized.
