PEGN 315 FIELD SESSION – WYOMING By Carrie McClelland

A group of sophomores traveled throughout Wyoming this year to get a hands-on introduction to the industry. The trip began with a visit to the WPX corporate offices in Denver and continued with visits to Halliburton in Rock Springs; QEP , and TPG in Pinedale; and Anadarko and Baker Hughes Centrilift in Casper. We were also treated to an amazing geology tour of the Alcova Reservoir area by Terry Logue. With all of these visits, the students received an introduction to oil, natural gas, artificial lift, carbon dioxide injection, hydraulic fracturing, and other aspects of the industry.

your stories and were appreciative of the time you took to attend. Some of the things we did for fun included a quick tour of Yellowstone National Park, exploring Jackson Hole, building a snowman in late May, and having a barbeque at the hotel. (The food was amazing!) It is always a joy to take the students on this excursion and watch as their knowledge of the industry and new friendships grow.

We were fortunate enough to be able to have a celebratory dinner with some of our alumni at the Casper Petroleum Club. We are hoping to be able to see many more alumni there next year if we get to do it again. The students loved hearing

We had some classroom time too…

Tours in the field helped our students see the industry up close and learn a lot.
