CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) Halliburton Co. is the latest corporation to support construction of an energy research laboratory at the University of Wyoming in a push to improve school energy and engineering programs.

Officials from Houston-based Halliburton and the state said Tuesday that the energy services company is donating $3 million. Of that, $2 million will help fund construction of a laboratory complex while $1 million will support research. Wyoming will match those amounts.

Halliburton's contribution will help with construction of the High Bay Research Facility. The 60,000-square-foot facility in Laramie is expected to be completed in 2016.

Other companies that have supported the project include Exxon Mobil Corp., Royal Dutch Shell PLC and Baker Hughes Inc.
