Energy Council Executive Committee Visits Sandia

The Energy Council pauses in their tour of the NSTTF. Energy Council legislators oversee energy and related environmental regulation in North American states/provinces where energy is important to the employment base and fiscal well-being. The Energy Council provides a larger context in which each jurisdiction may consider its particular concerns. The Council’s interests [...]

Expansion of DOE-DOT Tight Oil Research Work

The Departments of Energy and Transportation commissioned a technical team through Sandia to examine the properties of tight crude oils as they relate to potential combustion events in the rail transport environment. Key objectives of this investigation are to characterize and define tight crude oils based on their chemical and physical properties, and identify properties [...]

Sandians Participate in 46th Annual American Geophysical Union (AGU) Conference

Fifty-six Sandians from ten Centers joined more than 22,000 geoscience professionals, students, and academics at the December AGU Fall Meeting. Sandia staff chaired multiple technical sessions and gave dozens of presentations on topics ranging from improved climate models to performance models for underground waste storage to 3D printing and digital rock physics. Marianne Walck (Director [...]
