TOTAL UNDERGRADUATES UNIVERSITY  CLASSIFICATION

Freshmen

As we have witnessed over the course of a decade, undergraduate enrollment has continued to rise in MPGE. This year gave us a new record high of 1098 students for the fall semester, a 14% increase over last year’s total, with a freshman class of 324 students. Only two other programs have a greater undergraduate enrollment than OU in petroleum engineering, Louisiana State University and Texas Tech. This increase in enrollment has propelled MPGE to become the largest academic unit on the Norman campus. Table 1.1 illustrates the demographics for MPGE since 2008. Non-resident enrollment has been steadily on the rise and now accounts for 34% of MPGE undergraduate enrollment; 23% of our total enrollment is from Texas. International student representation within our undergraduate program has slid from 20% between 2010-2012. It has remained at 16% for the past three years. Twenty-nine countries are

Scholarships

MPGE is fortunate to have generous alumni and industry friends who believe strongly in enriching the future of the industry by providing educational opportunities through scholarships. For the 2014-15 academic year, 275 students were awarded funding through 57 scholarship funds totaling $803,300. MPGE scholarships are based solely on academic merit--students must have a GPA of 3.2 or higher in order to qualify. Students who have been selected as Mewbourne Leadership Scholars (MLS) receive funding for four years of study in the program and opportunities for internships with Mewbourne Oil Company. MPGE also recognizes the National Merit Scholars who have chosen OU and our petroleum engineering program from amongst the numerous options they had available to them. Each year they remain in the program as a National Merit Scholar, MPGE awards them $3,500. Additionally, the Oklahoma Energy Resource Board (OERB) provides many scholarships each year. Currently, 51 MPGE students benefit from OERB scholarships.

Curriculum Improvements

three or more of the six prerequisite courses must meet a minimum retention GPA of 3.25 in those courses. Fall 2014

During the 2013-14 academic year, MPGE began to examine ways to address the increasing enrollment numbers. Some schools were deciding to place maximum capacities on their programs. To meet the demand, MPGE renovated and increased capacities in laboratories and classrooms, added faculty, and instituted a Professional Program application process which requires students to meet a set of qualifiers before they would be allowed to take 3000-level petroleum engineering coursework. In order to apply for the Professional Program, students must have a minimum OU retention and combined GPA of 2.50 and have successfully completed six prerequisite courses: Calculus I, Calculus II, Chemistry I, Chemistry II, Physics I, and Intro to Physical Geology. Students who transfer no more than two of these six courses into OU must earn a minimum retention GPA in these courses of 3.0; students transferring

*Conditionally Admitted students are students whose grades are very close to the cut-off, however, to make the fairest assessment, their final grades for the semester are needed to determine if they meet the qualifications for admittance to the Professional Program or not.

Approximately 85% of applicants have been admitted or conditionally admitted, as detailed in the above table. Of those who were conditionally admitted Fall 2014, after reviewing their grades, nine were admitted and four were denied.

In addition to implementing the professional program to address increasing enrollment, MPGE’s Undergraduate Committee reviewed the flow of our curriculum in order to improve attrition rates. Course prerequisites were reviewed and updated to allow students to navigate through the program without unnecessary delays in graduation. Not only has this improved attrition in just its first year, but it also has allowed MPGE to project future enrollment more accurately.

the past three years. This substantially broadens the scope of courses we can offer in addition to the research possibilities that come with each new faculty member. In Spring 2013, we instituted an accelerated 5-year B.S./M.S. program in Petroleum Engineering to attract and retain high quality undergraduate students into MPGE’s graduate studies, and, also, to increase enrollment of American students in our graduate program. Spring 2014 saw the first group of applications to the program. Of the 28 students who applied, five were accepted. Those students are currently completing their programs of study. This program is an excellent way for MPGE undergraduate students to gain a competitive edge in the oil and gas industry at a minimal investment in time and cost.

In addition to the experience students receive working closely with faculty on research, a program exists that is similar to our 5-year Accelerated B.S./M.S., sponsored by BakerHughes: 21st Century Co-operative Program, that allows students to work closely with industry professionals and network with their peers across disciplines to achieve project goals. Students apply to the program during their sophomore year. Those selected will intern throughout their undergraduate years at Baker-Hughes facilities. During their fifth year, students will complete their M.S. coursework along with a project. There are currently five MPGE students taking part in this program. Natural Gas Engineering & Management

The Natural Gas Engineering and Management (NGEM) program currently has sixteen students enrolled in it, fourteen 12


students are from outside of the U.S. One unique factor of the students enrolled in NGEM is that 31% of the students are female--the highest percentage of women in any of MPGE’s programs. Beginning in Fall ’15, new options will be available within the NGEM program. We have been approved to offer our M.S. in NGEM via distance learning, and we will also have available, both on-campus and on-line, a Certificate in Natural Gas Technology. Both the M.S. and Certificate will operate in an identical manner whether the student is seeking the oncampus or on-line option. The advantage the on-line options provide is to allow working adults to continue to work within the natural gas industry full-time while pursuing additional education to benefit not only their own careers but the companies they work for.

The certificate program consists of 15 credit hours. Should a student decide to then seek an M.S. NGEM, nine of those hours would be able to be transferred into that degree program.

Student Life

Jordan Stone, and Connor Walters were coached by Carl Sondergeld and Deepak Devegowda. In addition to their second place win, team member Son Dang was selected as the 2014 MVP from amongst all the competitors.

MPGE students have wide variety of activities to participate in throughout the year that not only allows for fun and fellowship with their peers but, also, gives them the opportunity to polish professional skills and network with industry members. Five student organizations serve our students and provide such opportunities through their programing: OU Society of Petroleum Engineers, OU American Association of Drilling Engineers, OU Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts, Pi Epsilon Tau, and, our newest organization, Women in Petroleum and Geological Engineering. Our students also build upon their classroom experience and knowledge through participation in competitions. OU’s Petrobowl team has a long history of excellence. This year our team placed second at the championships held in Amsterdam. Team memebers Son Dang, Bryce Fugate, Daniel Rennix, 14


Three MPGE students and one Energy Management student participated in the Alberta Energy Challenge. Bryce Fugate, Faye Reiley, Kirke Suter, and Avery Marczewski finished third at this year’s competition held in Edmonton, Alberta.

We were also pleased to have three of our students move into the finals for BP’s Ultimate Field Trip competition. Madeline Bull, Amanda Knaup, and Charlie McDaniel presented their idea “Replacing Freshwater Sources used in Oilfield Operations with Polished Municipal Wastewater.” Not only are our students leaders within MPGE but, also, across OU’s campus. This year’s student government president, Kunal Naik, is a sophomore in our program. In addition, MPGE students serve on Integrity Council, the Pride of Oklahoma, and are members of over fifty different student organizations.

Consortia

Research in the Mewbourne School is performed primarily as part of consortia sponsored by industry members, research projects sponsored by national agencies like the DOE, and sponsored projects by individual companies. The following brief summaries provide an indication of the breadth of research performed within the School.

C OILED T UBING C ONSORTIUM (S UBHASH S HAH ) One of the major research areas currently underway at the Well Construction Technology Center (WCTC) deals with the evolving technology of coiled tubing (CT). The deployment of CT units has been on the rise internationally.  The University of Oklahoma is on the fore-front of this evolving technology.  A joint-industry Coiled Tubing Consortium (CTC) was established in 1997 to conduct research in various CT areas and to help the oil and gas industry for their CT needs.  The cutting-edge research on

fluids pumped through coiled tubing for various applications is being conducted at the center. Through the research efforts of the consortium, a large database and correlations for determining the frictional pressure losses and complex rheological behavior of non-Newtonian fluids and foams representing popular drilling, completion, and stimulation fluids pumped through reeled and straight portions of coiled tubing strings, as well as concentric and eccentric annuli have been developed.  These correlations are currently used in computer simulation models by all participants to provide reliable estimates of the tubular friction pressure losses (hence, horsepower estimates) for fluids typically used in the oil and gas industry.  It has helped participants in better design of coiled tubing treatments and also has reduced uncertainty in field operations employing coiled tubing.  It has provided a great economic benefit by improving the success rate of their treatments. In addition to the friction pressure loss studies, the other relevant research areas such as drag or friction reduction in various tubular geometries; proppant slurry flows; coiled tubing erosion due to proppant slurry flow; hydraulics of wire-line cable injection in coiled tubing; wellbore sand cleanout/drill cuttings removal, etc. are also being investigated.  To better design future experiments and thereby reducing time and cost of performing labor-intensive fieldscale testing, extensive Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software simulations are routinely performed.  These simulations also enable into insight of better understanding of 23


the experimental observations on fluid flow phenomena studied at WCTC. As a result of our continued research in the newly evolving technology, OU’s Well Construction Technology Center (WCTC) is now recognized by the Oil and Gas Industry as the “Center of Excellence” for the Coiled Tubing Technology and Applications. 6 members; $40, 000/yr

S HALE G AS AND U NCONVENTIONAL R ESERVOIR R ESEARCH C OOPERATIVE (C ARL S ONDERGELD , C HANDRA R AI ) This consortium was formed four years ago to integrate all the multi-scale observational constraints to improve the efficiency of hydrocarbon extraction from shale. We are dealing with nano-scale modeling of flow in the organic and inorganic pores of shales. These insights are tested  against macroscopic petrophysical properties measurements. We also have a parallel effort to analyze production decline curves for reservoir properties,  fracture half length, effective permeabilities, etc. Additionally we are measuring a suite o f  p e t r o p h y s i c a l p r o p e r t i e s o n d o n a t e d c o r e s to  extend  petrotyping to new plays. Simultaneously, we are exploring new technologies which show promise in their application to shales: scanning acoustic microscopy, nanoindentation and higher  frequency NMR (12MHz). Our  research  on crushed permeability measurements indicates they are useless primarily due to procedural

differences among and within service providers. Studies on standards so good agreement among low porosity techniques on plugs.   We carry out hydraulic fracturing experiments to understand the stimulation processes and to make them more efficient. Recent high speed video imaging of fractures reveals details of textural variations and propagation velocities.  Another principal focus is the FIB-SEM and  SEM analysis of shale  microstrucure and its  dependence on  maturity. A  new research direction is hydrous pyrolysis through which we study the kinetics and microstructural development of maturing organics under controlled conditions. These efforts have lead to new techniques to measure organic density and maturity. Our overall goal is to link all these studies to more efficient hydrocarbon recovery from shale. We currently have nine new  and three founding members participating. 8 members; $260,000/yr

E XPERIMENTAL R OCK P HYSICS C ONSORTIUM (C HANDRA R AI AND C ARL S ONDERGELD ) Six industry partners continue to support the integrated study of petrophysical and seismic properties of reservoir and seal rocks. This consortium has been ongoing to 10 years. Our emphasis is establishing the relationships among petrophysics properties and between petrophysical rock properties. We do this through basic research and case studies. Case studies are based on cores supplied by consortium members. A major theme of the consortium is to develop a quantitative basis for the interpretation of seismic and logging data and to improve 24


performance and economics through better reservoir characterization. 6 members; $35,000/yr

G EOMECHANICS G AS S HALE C ONSORTIUM (GGSC) P HASE IV; 2014-2017 (Y OUNANE A BOUSLEIMAN ) The Phase IV is planned to last through December 2016. The GeoGenome Industry Consortium established in 2005, aiming at nanomechanics of shale and eventually gas shale, was renamed in 2010 by the industrial members. Phase III finished in January 2014 and Phase IV has just started for three more years till January 2017.   4 members, $50,000/year

R OCK M ECHANICS C ONSORTIUM P HASE VII; 20132016 (Y OUNANE A BOUSLEIMAN )

also in terms of publications and field studies. With the collaboration and overlapping of these consortia, we were honored by two AAPG awards presented April 2012, in Long Beach, California. 8 members; $50,000/year

G RANITE W ASH C ONSORTIUM ; CPSGG: 80%, MPGE 20% (D EVEGOWDA ) The Granite Wash Consortium focuses on a multidisciplinary reservoir characterization and modeling workflow of the Pennsylvanian “Granite Wash” Anadarko Basin including improvement of the regional structural and stratigraphic framework, characterization and modeling  of reservoir heterogeneity and connectivity, seismic characterization, micro-seismic and attribute analysis of reservoir stratigraphy and fractures as well as reservoir simulation, production data analysis and production optimization.

The Phase VII is planned to last through January 2016.

3 members; $45,000/yr

This consortium with the complementary Geomechanics of Gas Shale Consortium Phase III in place till December 2014, has taken a spin off on modeling analytical solutions to wellbore stability and hydraulic fracturing simulations in anisotropic rock formations such as gas shale. ABAQUS has been used extensively to validate numerical schemes accounting for more complex geometries for layered formation, simulating hydraulic fracture propagation, within gas shale rock anisotropy. These advances are now the trade mark of our products to industry members since 2010, and

M ISSISSIPPI L IME C ONSORTIUM , CPSGG 80%, MPGE 20% (D EVEGOWDA ) Info: The Mississippi Lime Consortium will focus on an integrated geological, geophysical and reservoir engineering study of the stratigraphic, structural and diagenetic controls on heterogeneity and productivity of the Mississippian carbonate, tripolite and associated reservoirs of the midcontinent. 3 members: $45,000/yr 25
