INTEGRATED PETROLEUM ENVIRONMENTAL CONSORTIUM (IPEC)

Impact/Purpose:

-art petroleum environmental technology, new technology development, and legal and regulatory issues which can impact the competitiveness of the domestic petroleum industry.

-art petroleum environmental technology, new technology development, and legal and regulatory issues which can impact the competitiveness of the domestic petroleum industry.

The Integrated Petroleum Environmental Consortium (IPEC) is a consortium of four universities in Oklahoma and Arkansas: The University of Tulsa (TU), The University of Oklahoma (OU), Oklahoma State University (OSU), and The University of Arkansas (UA) at Fayetteville. The fiscal center of IPEC is the University of Tulsa. The consortium has the following specific objectives:

  • Development of new, cost-effective technologies for the solution of environmental problems in the petroleum industry to improve the competitiveness of the industry
  • Dissemination of information regarding state-of-the-art petroleum environmental technology, new technology development, and legal and regulatory issues which can impact the competitiveness of the domestic petroleum industry.

The strategic and economic importance of this industry requires that industry, government and academia combine their resources and coordinate their efforts toward finding solutions for the environmental problems that represent the greatest challenge to the competitiveness of the domestic petroleum industry. The success of this effort will not only stimulate jobs in this industry sector, but also contribute in a large way to the environmental health of the nation. In response to this need, the four major research universities in the oil-producing states of Oklahoma and Arkansas have joined together to form the Integrated Petroleum Environmental Consortium (IPEC). The mission of IPEC is to increase the competitiveness of the domestic petroleum industry through a reduction in the costs of compliance with U.S. environmental regulations. Objectives specific to meeting the goals of the consortium include the following:

  1. Development of cost-effective technologies to meet the challenges of environmental regulations to the competitiveness of the domestic petroleum industry.
  2. Dissemination of information regarding state-of-the
