About Dr. Dongmei Wang
Dongmei Wang is an Assistant Professor and member of the Graduate Faculty in the Harold Hamm School of Geology and Geological Engineering at the University of North Dakota (UND). She is also a Petroleum Engineering Scientist in the Petroleum Research Education & Entrepreneurship Center at the UND. She received her Ph.D. in Oil & Gas Reservoir Engineering from the RIPED in 2007, and her B.S. in Computer Science from the Daqing Petroleum Institute in 1987.
Dongmei Wang's courses in Geological Engineering, include Earth’s Dynamics, Petrophysics, Underground Mining Excavation, Enhanced Oil Recovery, Sinor Design, and topic specific courses.
AREAS OF INTEREST AND EXPERTISE
Dongmei’s primary areas of interest and expertise focus on enhanced oil recovery from conventional and unconventional oil and gas resources, as well as economic evaluations. She had more than twenty years’ experience in 40 projects that involved case design in reservoir engineering, production, and reservoir simulation in PetroChina before she joined the University of North Dakota. At Daqing, China, Dongmei played a key role in what is, by far, the largest polymer flooding application in the world. Dongmei established the document/procedure manual for the design of polymer floods throughout China and holds a China patent. She received a number of awards for outstanding achievement in implementing new concepts and developing innovative pilot tests for enhanced oil recovery processes within PetroChina. Since 2009, she has been principal investigator for six research projects funded by DOE/RPSEA and various companies in the area of enhanced oil recovery from tight rocks in the Williston Basin. She was also co-principal investigator for three projects using chemicals to remove oil from contaminated soils.
Dongmei has supported her research for undergraduate and graduate student education through grants and contracts from the US Department of Energy/Research Partnership to Secure Energy for America- DOE/RPSEA), North Dakota Industrial Commission- NDIC, and various companies. Dongmei has authored or coauthored more than 40 technical papers.
