Environmentally Friendly Drilling program hosting May 14 workshop

The Environmentally Friendly Drilling (EFD) Systems Program is hosting a workshop May 14 at Pearl Studio, 200 E. Grayson Street, in San Antonio. According to organizers, the workshop will bring together research teams that have been reducing the environmental footprint of oil and gas for over a decade. The EFD program conducts quarterly workshops all over the United States.

"At this workshop, attendees will hear from top industry professionals on the successes and challenges of powering energy production with natural gas," said Dr. Susan Stuver, research scientist at the Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources and manager of the Environmentally Friendly Drilling West Regional Center.

Texas A&M University and the Houston Advanced Research Center established the EFD program in 2005 to provide unbiased science and develop solutions to address issues associated with oil and gas development. For more information, see
