LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — A research group focused on the potential for reusing wastewater produced during oil and gas operations is getting some support from ExxonMobil.
New Mexico State University announced this week that the company has been added as a sponsor.
University Chancellor Dan Arvizu said research sponsors are critical to advancing new and innovative technologies necessary for New Mexico to ensure that produced water can be safely used for applications outside of the oil and gas industry.
As a member of the consortium, ExxonMobil engineers and scientists will participate in the consortium’s research and engineering working groups and projects.
