Dr. Kyle E. Murray
Dr. Kyle E. Murray is a Hydrogeologist for the Oklahoma Geological Survey and Adjunct Faculty for the ConocoPhillips School of Geology and Geophysics at the University of Oklahoma.
As the OGS Hydrogeologist, he investigates physical and chemical properties of geologic materials that store and produce fluids, and conducts regional-scale studies of water, earth, and environmental resources.
Water management in the energy industry is his current primary research area, which includes the study of water use in exploration and production, co-production of petroleum and water, saltwater management, disposal, recycle, and reuse.
Because of the recent increase in seismic activity in Oklahoma, Dr. Murray is partnering with other geoscientists to understand relationships between geologic factors, resource management, and seismicity.
