Petroleum Engineering Research
University of North Dakota's College of Engineering and Mines offers the only Petroleum Engineering degree program in the state.
The UND Petroleum Engineering program has access to extensive laboratory facilities that are currently being utilized to conduct physical and chemical testing and computer modeling. In addition, the Wilson M. Laird Core and Sample Library that contains cores cut in the North Dakota portion of the oil- and coal-rich Williston Basin is utilized in several of the required Petroleum Engineering courses. Students will participate in on-going research programs on methods to enhance the recovery of oil and gas from the huge unconventional oil reserve in the Bakken formation, and sequestration of CO2.
