Todd Presents at BALP Conference


Montana Tech Professor Burt Todd was invited to speak at the 2013 Bakken Artificial Lift and Production (BALP) Conference, which will be held September 24-25 in Denver Colorado. The BALP Conference is a meeting of leading petroleum industry professionals looking for safe and cost-effective methods to manage production of Bakken petroleum reserves. Dr. Todd will be presenting the research of himself and Co-Investigators John Evans, Leo Heath, and David Reichhardt, entitled “Effects of Enhanced Oil Recovery on Production Engineers, Elm Coulee Field, Bakken Reservoir, Richland County, Montana.” This presentation is part of ongoing research at Montana Tech funded by the Montana Board of Oil and Gas, and is working to maximize the economic impact of the Bakken petroleum resource well into the future. Results thus far suggest that, if properly managed, Bakken petroleum reserves have the potential to power the economy of the Williston Basin area for years to come, but will require skillful deployment of state-of-the-art technology. The goal of this research project is to advance that technological effort.
