Message from the Director


As we’re looking into Quarter 4 and the home stretch of 2020, there’s very little that turned out how we could have predicted on January 1, 2020. Despite the challenges and transitions across the energy industry and the globe, we remain grateful that by and large, our staff, researchers, University and government partners, and corporate members remain safe and dedicated to the work at hand.

The last few months have been busy and productive, even with a quieter than normal campus atmosphere. Since our last issue, EGI staff and researchers have launched new projects and developed relationships for new ideas and research; they have embraced a new age of virtual meetings and conducted remote training and education courses for our members.

And, as part of a Tier One research University, EGI has continued to take on a critical role in supporting students, colleagues, and early career professionals in navigating the current industry challenges as well as successfully publishing an abundance of original research.

Beginning with our founding in 1972 during the oil crisis of that era, for over 48 years EGI has stepped up to take on the challenge of guiding, supporting, and engaging the highest quality research in pursuit of the science to find energy. As we did then and continue to do today, EGI is here for all our members, partners, staff, and students. We encourage you all to continue to look to us, challenge us, and test us with your specific questions and ideas. EGI is here to serve you.
