Texas A&M Energy Institute and TEES Gas and Fuels Research Center form partnership
The two organizations will collaborate to capitalize on major research, education and training efforts
The leadership of the Texas A&M Energy Institute (TAMEI), a joint institute between Texas A&M University and the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), along with the TEES Gas and Fuels Research Center (GFRC), have announced a new partnership that will align the research, education and training interests of both organizations for their mutual benefit.
With common interests in the pursuit of the advancement of knowledge and science-related to energy-related and energy-intensive processes, systems and opportunities, TAMEI and GFRC’s objectives are well aligned, complementary and stand to benefit Texas A&M, TEES, The Texas A&M University System, the state of Texas and the broader community.
Further, the leaders of these organizations anticipate added value and enhancement for both organizations through increased collaborations between the two parties.
“We very much welcome this partnership,” said Dr. Stratos Pistikopoulos, interim co-director and deputy director of the TAMEI. “This will allow us to create synergies and opportunities between our two organizations in the strategically important energy space of natural and shale gas and fuels. Further, this will strengthen the existing relationships between our Qatar campus and main campus for energy research, education and training.”
“Texas A&M University has played a critical role in the energy future by leading the oil era in the United States, with many impacts globally,” said Dr. Nimir O. Elbashir, director of the GFRC. “The partnership of the TEES Gas and Fuels Research Center with the Energy Institute provides an excellent opportunity for the university to now lead in the shale oil and gas era.”
It is anticipated that new approaches will be discovered through this partnership, previously unavailable research opportunities will be presented, and diverse sets of individuals will gain mastery of concepts through innovative educational programs.
