Dr. Jennifer L. MiskiminsSpeakerDr. Miskimins holds BS, MS, and PhD degrees in petroleum engineering and has over 25 years of experience in the petroleum industry. Between her BS and graduate degrees, she worked for Marathon Oil Company in a variety of locations as a production engineer and supervisor. Dr. Miskimins started teaching at CSM in 2002 and was full-time until 2013 when she returned to industry. From 2013-2016, she continued to hold a part-time appointment at CSM, advising research and graduate students, while working for Barree & Associates. In 2016, she returned full-time to the university.

Dr. Miskimins specializes in well completions, stimulation, hydraulic fracturing, and associated production issues. She is the founder and current Director of the Fracturing, Acidizing, Stimulation Technology (FAST) Consortium and also co-directs the Center for Earth Materials, Mechanics, and Characterization (CEMMC). Her research interest focus on the optimization of stimulation treatments and the importance of such on associated recovery efficiencies.

Dr. Miskimins served as the first Completions Technical Director on the SPE International Board of Directors from 2016-2018. She was an SPE Distinguished Lecturer in 2010-2011 and 2013-2014 on hydraulic fracturing in unconventional reservoirs. Dr. Miskimins serves on a variety of conference organizing committees, including the SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technical Conference and Exhibition, and as a technical editor for various journals. She is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Colorado (License #36193).
Dr. Mohan KelkarSpeakerMohan Kelkar is Professor and Chair of Petroleum Engineering at the University of Tulsa. He received his BS in Chemical Engineering from University of Bombay, India and then MS in Petroleum and PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. His primary area of research interest is reservoir modeling and reservoir characterization. He has written over 70 refereed papers and made over 250 technical presentations. He has co-authored three books. He is actively involved in SPE activities and has received several SPE awards for his contributions including SPE Distinguished Service Award, SPE International Outstanding Faculty Award, SPE Distinguished Speaker, SPE Distinguished Member and SPE Ferguson Certificate.
