Two of the most frequently cited challenges associated with the Eagle Ford Shale activity—transportation and water—will be the focus of the Texas A&M University-Kingsville Eagle Ford Center for Research, Education and Outreach (EFCREO) Fall Workshop.

            The workshop—Innovative Transportation and Water Technologies for a Sustainable Eagle Ford Development— begins at 9:30 a.m. Friday, November 15 in the City of Cotulla Convention Center at 290 N. IH35 (Access Road)  in Cotulla.

            Panel discussions featuring researchers from universities and representatives from industry and governmental agencies will focus on an array of topics from road condition monitoring and oilfield material recycling to desalination and frac water supply alternatives.

            “The goal of this workshop is to facilitate the communications about innovative technologies that can be used to address issues related to the transportation and water resources encountered in the Eagle Ford Development,” said Dr. Jianhong-Jennifer Ren, associate dean in the Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering.

            Posters detailing research conducted by A&M-Kingsville faculty and students related to sustainable development, environmental engineering, and natural gas production will be on display.

            Event sponsors include BHP Billiton and S&B Infrastructure, Ltd.

            Registration is on-going. Workshop attendees can register by emailing their name, title, affiliation and phone number to EFCREO@tamuk.edu.
