FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: OU Public Affairs, (405) 325-1701
NORMAN – Expansion of the Reproductive Endocrinology Clinic at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and the construction of a new well-core viewing room at the Oklahoma Geological Survey are among topics to be discussed by the OU Board of Regents at its regular meeting Wednesday, Jan. 29, in Norman.
The meeting will begin at 3 p.m. in 618 Headington Hall with items submitted by Rogers State University and Cameron University, followed by those submitted by OU.
The board will consider a recommendation for the build-out of an approximately 15,000-square-foot area at the OU Health Sciences Center University Research Park that would be utilized by the OU Physicians Reproductive Endocrinology Clinic as clinical and exam space.
The OU board also will consider a proposal for construction of a new well-core viewing room at the Oklahoma Geological Survey. The Geological Survey houses and maintains thousands of well logs and core samples used by the Oklahoma oil and gas industry. The well cores are analyzed as part of the process whereby decisions are made regarding new drilling programs, production planning and reserve calculations. If approved, the new well-core viewing room within the existing warehouse will provide an area for the secure storage and assembly of fragile cores for viewing.
The next regular meeting of the OU Board of Regents is currently scheduled for March 26 and 27 in Oklahoma City.
