The Center for Oil and Gas


EERC Expertise

The Center for Oil and Gas at the Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC) is a specialized technical group focusing on design and implementation of new approaches to the exploration, development, and production of oil and gas. Practicing under the long-standing EERC philosophy of collaboration and an interdisciplinary approach, the group’s success is based on developing effective partnerships with the oil and gas exploration and production industry and government agencies.

Capabilities include the following:

  • Geologic characterization and modeling
  • Information systems design and data management
  • Geological laboratory and analytical facilities
  • CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)
  • Engineering services
  • Reservoir simulations
  • Measurement, monitoring, and verification for carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects

Bakken Production Optimization Program


The EERC, in close coordination with Continental Resources, Inc., and several of the Williston Basin’s premier operating companies, is engaged in a research program with the goal of simultaneously improving Bakken system oil recovery while reducing its environmental footprint.
