|Tour - Texas Tech University, Petroleum Engineering Oilfield Technology Center||-||
An opportunity to tour the The Oilfield Technology Center will be available Thursday afternoon, from 2:00-4:00. Anyone wishing to tour the OTC, should signup at the registration desk at the Southwestern Petroleum Short Course. A map and directions will be provided at the registration desk.
The Oilfield Technology Center (OTC) on the Texas Tech East Campus is located on ten acres of land near the intersection of East Loop 289 and 4th street in Lubbock. The facility is designed to serve as a research and teaching facility to give both undergraduate and graduate petroleum engineering students a hands-on experience in the design and operation of typical oilfield equipment.
The centerpiece of the OTC is a fully-equipped 4,000-foot deep test well drilled in 2001 with a 456D pumping unit on it. The un-perforated test well provides the capability of supporting research in artificial lift equipment and techniques as well as the development and testing of other cased-hole tools.
A full scale operational tank battery complete with processing equipment has been constructed that can be used in researching better surface production methods and environmental controls. Also on location is a gas treating pad with a high pressure wellhead, line heater, separator and compressors.
