Around Texas

October, 2009

The University of Texas of the Permian Basin’s geology department has received a total of about $1 million in grants, most of which came from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Recovery Act, according to a statement released this week by the university.  

For the most part, according to the release, the grants will go toward carbon-dioxide training as a element of efficient oilfield extraction techniques.  

Altogether, the grants comprise about one-eighth of UTPB’s external funding.
