The University of Oklahoma (OU) campus sat unusually quiet for an early spring day. OU’s spring break had come and gone; the sidewalks should have been swarming.
But OU, like other educational institutions, closed its physical operations as the first quarter ended due to the COVID-19 crisis and turned to the internet to continue instruction. Dr. J. Mike Stice, dean of the Mewbourne College of Earth and Energy, apologized as the conversation began for cutting the meeting short; he had to prepare videos for two of his classes that he now teaches remotely. Work goes on, pandemic or no pandemic.
He took time from his schedule to share with Midstream Business what he sees occurring now in the oil and gas business and what may lie ahead.
