South Dakota School of Mines & Technology will host an oil and gas conference later this month.
The ninth annual New Horizons Oil & Gas Conference will focus on oil and gas activities in the northern Great Plains and Rocky Mountains, especially as they affect the Williston, Powder River and Denver-Julesburg producing basins.
The April 23-26 event attracts geoscientists and related professionals from the Rocky Mountain region.
Geology and geological engineering professor emeritus Alvis Lisenbee says the Black Hills are an ideal location for the petroleum conference. He says rock layers, which produce oil in the surrounding areas, are at the surface, and geologists can walk up to an outcrop and see the material.
Oil industry representatives from companies in Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico also will attend.
