    The SMU Geothermal Lab is hosting its 6th Geothermal Energy Utilization Conference! This conference brings together individuals from all aspects of project development for electrical production from subsurface geothermal energy and the captured waste heat from surface mechanical equipment. Both technologies have proven applications in oil and gas fields. All attendees will hear a single track of presentations with 30-minute breaks designed for networking and team building. Tours of the pressure equipment demonstration will be available. The conference goal is to advance the understanding of energy production so that companies can successfully produce emission-free energy, while extending the life of an oil or gas field.

    The pre-conference workshop on March 12th, A Primer on Geothermal Energy Resources and Waste Heat Technologies will provide a great introduction for those new to the geothermal and waste-heat communities. Four Continuing Education Credits provided.

    The FERC Chairman Jon Wellinghoff Keynote Luncheon is offered as a separate item so the wider energy community can meet with him. Chairman Wellinghoff oversees the regulations associated with the interstate transmission of electricity, oil and gas, as well as proposals for pipelines, LNG, and hydropower projects.
