A Texas Tech engineering department has received a hefty gift.

Tech announced that the Petroleum Engineering department has received a $1 million gift from Anadarko Petroleum Corporation that will be used to create the Anadarko Unconventional Technology Center.

The new center will be in the new Petroleum Engineering Research Building on the Texas Tech campus.

The Anadarko Unconventional Technology Center will be a high-profile laboratory focused on unconventional natural gas and oil operations.

“I am pleased that the vision of Anadarko and our vision for educating engineering leaders in energy are so well aligned,” said Al Sacco, Jr., dean of the Whitacre College of Engineering. “The Anadarko Unconventional Technology Center will allow us to explore new, more environmentally friendly and cost effective ways to create energy for our state and our nation.”

Anadarko is among the world’s largest independent oil and natural gas exploration and production companies, with approximately 5,700 employees and operations in more than 15 countries.
