May 2018 Newsletter
Message From the President
Dear Members & Friends of the LPS,
Thank you for all the feedback and support we have received since we told you about the concerns that we have with the new SPWLA Chapter Charter. We have arranged to meet with SPWLA President, Brett Wendt, at the London Symposium to try to find an equitable way forward that will work for the LPS and SPWLA.
At our May evening meeting we had a talk about 4D Multi-Scale Imaging of Steady State Two-Phase Flow in Sandstones and Reactive Flow in Carbonates, from Dr. Hannah Menke and Ying Gao at Imperial College. Many thanks to them for their great presentation.
Our next evening meeting is scheduled for 10th July, and will be “An Integrated Formation Evaluation Approach to Characterize a Turbidite Fan Complex – A Case Study from the Falkland Islands” to be presented by Maciej Kozlowski.
Before that, the main event is the SPWLA 59th Annual Symposium, taking place at Old Billingsgate on 2nd to 6th June. This outstanding event will consist of; eight fabulous workshops, two stunning field trips, three days of exceptional technical presentations, posters and exhibitions, and three evenings of great social events. This programme will have real interest for everybody who uses borehole data. Details can be found on www.spwla2018.com, and you will be able to register at the venue on the day.
Just to remind you, IODP (International Ocean Drilling Program) is running their annual Petrophysics summer school that at the University of Leicester in July. If you would like more details please go to; https://iodp.rocks/petrophysics-summer-school/.
The topic for our next seminar is Seismic Rock Physics and a call for abstracts is on the website, so please put 27th September in your diary.
The Newsletter is looking for technical content, so if you have a good technical paper you like us to publish then please contact Jusmell Graterol or Jenny Rastogi.
Mike Millar – LPS President
