Energy Rubber Group and Petroleum Technology Initiative Host Oilfield Technology Seminar

Since elastomers are components of most oilfield tools, machinery, and equipment, the industry has a major need for well-trained professionals. The Energy Rubber Group and the Petroleum Technology Initiative program in the College of Technology will host a three-day Oilfield Technology Seminar, March 11-13, 2014 at the University of Houston M.D. Anderson Library, in the Elizabeth D. Rockwell Pavilion. The main purpose of this seminar is to highlight exciting technology and career opportunities, and to extend the University of Houston’s collaboration with the energy Industry. The Petroleum Technology Initiative and Energy Rubber Group have organized this seminar in partnership with presenters and subject matter experts from several other industry companies.

This technical continuing education course will focus on offshore technology and the usage of elastomers for challenging oilfield applications and environmental conditions. In addition, the instructors will address technical topics such as sealing, evaluation of various types of drilling fluids, testing and analysis methodologies, and design requirements.

The fee for the course is $400. Participants will earn 2.0 CEUs (Continuing Education Units). There is no charge for students and veterans, and a certificate will be earned upon completion of the seminar.
