The Irani Center for Energy Solutions is the next step in energy education
At our Center on the University of Oklahoma campus, we provide best-in-class practical educational opportunities to students studying petroleum engineering, geology, geophysics, as well as students across campus in areas like energy management, entrepreneurship, economics, accounting and finance.
WE WORK WITH THE ENERGY INDUSTRY AND ITS ADVOCATES
This unique program brings real-world, real-time projects from energy companies to the Center’s hub on the 14th-floor of Sarkeys Energy Center on OU’s Norman campus.
Students dissect existing oil and gas plays, prepare industry-styled type-curve and reserve reports, work on projects such as evaluating undeveloped zones for drilling/recompletion opportunities, evaluate re-stimulation, artificial lift and compression configurations for optimizing production, and evaluate petrophysical and geological characteristics of resource plays, etc.
Interdisciplinary teams of students are overseen by top faculty and seasoned industry professionals who provide expertise, insights and technical guidance. Non-disclosure agreements protect a company’s valuable and confidential information, and all findings and proposed solutions are professionally presented back to the company.
