NTREG Monthly Meeting
Date: Saturday, April 11, 2015.

Topic: "Renewable Energy from Depleted Oil Fields using Geothermal Energy."
Presenter: Ramsey Kweik, Southern Methodist University Geothermal Labs
Depleted oil fields have potential for clean utility scale geothermal energy. Ramsey Kweik of the Southern Methodist University Geothermal Labs will share his studies of Fairway Field in East Texas. Research demonstrates considerable potential for geothermal development from old, depleted oil fields.
About Our Presenter:
Ramsey Kweik graduated with a Master of Science in Geophysics from Southern Methodist University in May, 2014. He worked with Dr. David Blackwell and Maria Richards in the SMU geothermal lab, and contributed to their research for seven years. He also held an internship with Hunt Oil Company for four consecutive summers. At Hunt, he served in various roles as a geology intern in their business development group. In the summer of 2012, Calpine Corporation offered him a unique internship opportunity at the Geysers Geothermal Field in California. This internship helped him further develop his interpretation and modeling skills of structurally complex reservoirs. His Master’s thesis at SMU allowed him to explore renewable energy opportunities in tandem with hydrocarbon production by analyzing temperature and mass data from Fairway Field in East Texas.
