W.A. (Monty) Moncrief Centennial Endowed Chair in Petroleum Engineering, The University of Texas at Austin
Dr. Larry Lake is a professor at the University of Texas where he is a specialist in reservoir engineering and geochemistry. Dr. Lake has written a book on Enhanced Oil Recovery, and has co-authored three other textbooks and more than 100 technical articles and reports. He also has edited the 6-volume Petroleum Engineering Handbook. His work in quantifying the effects of geochemical interactions and flow variability for resource recovery is widely applied by the industry. His reservoir characterization work includes demonstrating that different geological depositional processes produce flow properties that can be statistically described. Dr. Lake’s work has been crucial in developing more efficient methods for recovering oil and gas from reservoirs.
