Macro’s Rigoberto Advincula to give oil and gas industry webinar

Rigoberto Advincula, professor of macromolecular science and engineering, will give a webinar about nanostructured polymers for the oil and gas industry on Thursday, June 11.
 
The webinar, “Nanostructured Polymers and Nanomaterials for Oil and Gas,” will be hosted by Park Systems, a world leader in atomic force microscopy, as part of the company’s ongoing Nano Academy series, a platform for providing education on the latest advances across a wide spectrum of sciences.

Advincula will discuss the challenges of the oil and gas industry in terms of unconventionally gathered resources and the extreme conditions associated with them: shale gas extraction, deep sea, high-pressure high-temperature wells and high-brine conditions.

The webinar is free of charge, and knowledge of oil field chemicals and rubber materials is preferred, but not required.
