April 2018 Newsletter
Message From the President
Dear Members & Friends of the LPS,
At our April evening meeting we had two outstanding talks from the University of Leicester. Dr Erwan Le Ber, a IODP Research Associate, talked about using core and specially designed logging tools to help understand the Chicxulub impact crater. And PhD student, Kieran Blacker told us how integrating shallow seismic and shallow borehole data can be used to site offshore wind turbines. Many thanks to Erwan and Keiran for their interesting and thought provoking talks.
Erwan also gave us an outline on the Petrophysics summer school that IODP (International Ocean Drilling Program) are running at the University of Leicester in July. If you would like more details please go to; https://iodp.rocks/petrophysics-summer-school/
For the 15th May evening meeting we will have a talk on “4D multi-scale imaging of steady state two-phase flow in sandstones and reactive flow in carbonates” from Catriona Reynolds, Wood Mackenzie, and Hannah Menke, Imperial College, London.
Planning is beginning for our next seminar, to be held in September. The topic is Seismic Rock Physics and a call for abstracts will appear on our website soon. Please put 27th September in your diary for this seminar.
Registration is now open for the SPWLA 59th Annual Symposium. The venue is Old Billingsgate which is located on the Thames between London Bridge and Tower Bridge in London. And the dates are 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 great interest for everybody who uses borehole data. More details can be found on www.spwla2018.com.
