|LEEPS lectures to be given by Bakken project subsurface manager|
David Brimberry, Bakken project subsurface manager at Marathon Oil Company, will give two LEEPS lectures Friday, Nov. 21. Both presentations are in 109 Leonard Hall. At noon, Brimberry will speak on "Bakken Geologic and Reservoir Engineering Technical Evaluation Methods." At 3 p.m., he will speak on one of two topics, depending on interest: "The Importance of Integrated Subsurface Solutions" or "Resource Estimation Approaches." Both topics include examples from the Bakken project. The 3 p.m. lecture will be one-half hour long, due to travel time constraints. Brimberry has been with Marathon Oil in Houston, Texas, for 24 years, primarily as a geologist, working on United States exploration and production projects in the Rocky Mountain basins, Onshore Gulf of Mexico, Alaska and North Dakota. He holds an M.S. in geology from Texas Tech University and a B.S. in geology from Baylor University.
The Department of Geology and Geological Engineering Leading Edge of Earth and Planetary Science lecture program (LEEPS) brings nationally- and internationally-known scientists and others to UND to give talks on cutting edge science and engineering. Lectures cover a wide range of topics, including academic science, applied engineering, and environmental issues of current significance. All are welcome to attend. For more information, contact Dr. Zhengwen Zeng at 777-3027.
