Exxon Mobil Donates $2.5 Million to UW

Amy Richards\tsm
The University of Wyoming announced Thursday that a $2.5 million dollar grant from ExxonMobil will support science and technology education programs at the University of Wyoming, including research into technologies that improve the production of oil and gas. ExxonMobil is contributing $2.5 million to provide laboratory equipment for the university’s Improved Recovery Program, which is part of the newly created Center for Advanced Oil and Gas Technologies. The center is part of the School of Energy Resources and focuses on oil and gas extraction from unconventional reservoirs.

Randy Broiles, vice president, Americas, ExxonMobil Production Company, says the  contribution is part of our commitment to support math and science education and technological advancement in the field of energy. He adds that the company believes that  by investing in Wyoming’s higher education, an even greater number of students will be able to contribute to the next generation of energy development.

University of Wyoming President Tom Buchanan says energy extraction from unconventional reservoirs is a vital area of research for the University of Wyoming and the future of the state.  Buchanan says the University of Wyoming is “grateful to Exxonmobil for its generous gift in support of energy engineering research.”

The ExxonMobil contribution will be matched by the state, resulting in a total gift of $5 million.
