The Casper College School of Science will host Eric Robertson, Ph.D., during the school’s April STEM Talk on Friday, April 19, at noon in the Wold Physical Science Center in the Wheeler Auditorium, Room 103. Robertson will discuss CO2 and its importance in Wyoming.

Robertson is a licensed petroleum engineer with expertise in enhanced oil recovery, coalbed methane, CO2 sequestration, reservoir simulation, economic and technical feasibility studies, and research and development. Robertson also has five patents to his credit. “As a senior engineer, business development lead, and project manager for Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute, I oversee and manage projects to improve efficiency and production recovery for Wyoming’s oil and gas operators,” said Robertson.

Robertson earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in petroleum engineering from the University of Wyoming and his doctorate in petroleum engineering from the Colorado School of Mines.

Shane Singleton, a senior data architect at Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute, joins Robertson. According to his biography, Singleton has over 15 years of experience in systems management, SQL, computer programming, and data analysis, working across multiple industries. His area of expertise is data management and data integration, emphasizing Wyoming oil and gas data and geospatial data. A Casper College alumnus, Singleton earned two A.S. degrees, one in geographical information systems and the other in applied statistics. Singleton will discuss how his Casper College degrees paved the way to a career in the oil industry.
