    2018 promises to be an exciting year, with the high-light being the SPWLA 59th Annual Symposium, to be held in at Old Billingsgate in London 2nd to 6th June. This is the premier Formation Evaluation event of the year and we have exciting an technical programme as well as outstanding social events planned. Keep checking the website for news, www.SPWLA2018.com.

    Planning is well advanced for this year’s technical programme. For the 6th February evening meeting, Holger Thern from Baker Hughes will be presenting an NMR case study. And for the 6th March evening meeting, Philip Bailey of PetroStars will talk about ‘Living Petrophysics’. On 22nd February will be holding our first one-seminar of 2018, “Back to Basics Workshop: An introduction to Formation Evaluation”.
