Dr. Luis Zerpa Petr. Eng. Course at UA

Dr. Luis Zerpa of the Colorado School of Mines department of Petroleum Engineering gave a one day short course at The University of Arkansas on Saturday February 22.  This important offering for our geology students was organized by Geosciences Department alum John Williams (who founded the Geosciences Advisory Board) with much help from Ed Ratchford of the Arkansas Geological Survey and advisory board member.

Luis did a fine job of plowing through complex material, his course handouts will allow students to revisit the material for further study. The topics covered were:

We in the Geosciences department acknowledge our deep gratitude to Luis. This is the kind of opportunity that prepares our students for the petroleum industry and offers faculty a chance to refresh or learn new topics that can be brought into the classroom. We also thank advisory board members John Williams and Gerry Lundy for financial support of this course.

Over 50 attended the course instructed by Luis Zerpa (front center).

Dear Chris,

It was a pleasure teaching this course to the Department of Geosciences at the University of Arkansas. I really enjoyed my time at Fayetteville, and would be glad to come back any time in the near future.

Please, find below the web link to the book of Reservoir Engineering that I suggested yesterday,

Thanks for the note in your blog, I appreciate it.

Best wishes,
