- On April 7, 2014, Vice President for Research Robert Duncan introduced the Unconventional Production Technology and Environmental Consortium (UpTec), formerly the Hydraulic Fracturing Research Group (HFRG). The purpose of the name change is to better encompass the multidisciplinary nature of the extended research group and adequately convey the strategic focus that the consortium's efforts can bring to hydraulic fracturing technology.
- On Jan. 6, 2014, the Texas Tech Office of the Vice President for Research hosted the first Hydraulic Fracturing Forum for Oil and Gas Extraction and Production to discuss the future of hydraulic fracturing research at the university with both national and international collaborators.
- TTU’s UpTec hosted a Hydraulic Fracturing Symposium Nov. 21, 2013 with guest lecturer George E. King, Distinguished Engineering Advisor of Apache Corporation. King’s presentation focused on the technology adaptation and innovations that contributed to the growth in hydraulic fracturing and horizontal wells.
