University of North Dakota’s Petroleum Engineering Department to host world’s largest oil drilling simulatorUniversity of North Dakota
The University of North Dakota will soon host the world’s largest – and only – full scale oil drilling and completion lab. Petroleum engineering students will be able to simulate general drilling and deep drilling, along with testing different rocks, including shale. They will also be able to simulate oil reservoir conditions, including temperature, pressure and fluid flow. Doctoral students will be able to perform research that benefits the state of North Dakota.
