by Integrated Petroleum Environmental
Co-sponsored by the PTTC Texas Region and PTTC Central
workshop is geared toward oil and gas operators and state regulators.
Landowners are welcome as well.
Workshop attendees will learn how to cost effectively
remediate oil and brine spills using hands-on tools and teaching
materials developed by Dr. Kerry L. Sublette, Director of IPEC.
Attendees will also learn how to evaluate vendor claims for such
things as adding microbes, using surfactants, etc. Attendees
will receive a workbook, laminated guidelines, IPEC Soil Salt Analysis
Kit, IPEC Chloride Analysis in Water Kit, Bioremediation video,
and a Cost-effective Strategies video.

Questions and Comments
Dr. Kerry L. Sublette is director of the Center for Environmental
Research and Technology and Sarkeys Professor of Environmental Engineering
at The University of Tulsa. He also serves as the director of the
Integrated Petroleum Environmental Consortium (IPEC). He earned
his Ph.D. in chemical engineering in 1985 and worked for six years
in research and development for Combustion Engineering before joining
The University of Tulsa faculty. His research interests include
anoxic biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons, ecological indicators
of soil ecosystem restoration, and remediation of oil and brine
spills. Dr. Sublette has over 20 years of experience in environmental
engineering. He chairs the annual International Petroleum Environmental
Conference and has also provided training in bioremediation for
EPA on-scene coordinators and for the EPA Oil Spill Program.
The Soil Remediation Workshop was developed by Dr. Kerry L. Sublette
in order to help fulfill IPEC's mission for technology transfer.
IPEC's mission is to increase the competitiveness of the domestic
petroleum industry through a reduction in the costs of compliance
with U.S. environmental regulations by (1) developing cost effective
technologies to meet the challenges of environmental regulations
and promote the competitiveness of the domestic petroleum industry;
and (2) providing tools and technology transfer to empower independent
oil and gas producers to solve their own problems.
