Wyoming Oil and Gas Fair 2022 Webinar Series #3
The focus of the third WOGF webinar is the Wyoming Pipeline Corridor Initiative.
The Wyoming Oil and Gas Fair is pleased to present Mr. Matt Fry as a speaker for the Wyoming Oil & Gas Fair Virtual Series event.
This webinar will focus on the Wyoming Pipeline Corridor Initiative (WPCI). WPCI established corridors on public lands dedicated to future use of pipelines associated with carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and delivery of associated petroleum products.
About the Presenter, Matt Fry
Matt Fry is the State and Regional Policy Manager, supporting the Carbon Management program, at the Great Plains Institute. Matt has over 20 years of experience in natural resource management, regulation and policy in both the public and private sectors. Matt served as a Senior Policy Advisor to Wyoming Governor, Matt Mead, where he focused on natural resource, energy and CCUS policy. Additionally, he developed and managed the Wyoming Pipeline Corridor Initiative (WPCI), which was a project that culminated with a federal authorization for a statewide pipeline corridor system in Wyoming intended to facilitate development of CO2 pipeline infrastructure and incentivize CCUS project deployment.
Matt earned a Bachelor of Science in biology and chemistry from Davis & Elkins College, and a Master’s in Natural Resource Law from the University of Denver – Sturm College of Law.

The focus of the second WOGF webinar is Ambient Seismic Imaging – Optimizing Reservoir Recovery.
The Wyoming Oil and Gas Fair is pleased to present Jeffrey Eppink as a speaker for the Wyoming Oil & Gas Fair Virtual Series event. This webinar will focus on Ambient Seismic Imaging that creates 3D maps of fluid flows within reservoirs. This technology can help maximize the efficiencies of secondary and tertiary recovery programs, optimize completions in unconventional reservoirs as well as monitor the effectiveness of carbon storage efforts.
Ambient Seismic Imaging (ASI) can continuously map, in four dimensions, areas with high fluid flow within a reservoir. Using ASI, operators can see, with high-resolution mapping, how injection fluid is moving through a reservoir in almost real time. This ability provides an outstanding opportunity for operators to continuously monitor fluid movements during improved or enhanced recovery efforts and to make adjustments accordingly to maximize a program’s effectiveness. Additionally, ASI can help optimize drilling locations by accurately mapping fracture patterns and can help to monitor and evaluate carbon storage projects.
