April-May 2014 Newsletter
Message From the President
I will open with an apology on my part for the delayed issue of this newsletter, things have been rather hectic over the past few months, so this newsletter will cover two months activity.
We have had continued success of the SPWLA Distinguished Lecturer talks, which always pull a crowd of interested attendees followed by some very engaging discussion. Watch out for more of these through the year. As a reminder all our evening meetings are free to attend and require no registration.
At the evening lecture on 7th April, Shyam Ramaswami of Shell, and SPWLA Distinguished Lecturer 2013, gave a well attended talk entitled “Advanced reservoir evaluation using downhole fluid analysis and asphaltene Flory-Huggins-Zuo equation of state”.
At the evening lecture on 6th May, Craig Lindsay of Core Specialist Services, and SPWLA Distinguished Lecturer 2013 and Past President of Society of Core Analysts, gave a talk which prompted much discussion entitled “EOR from Low Salinity Water Flooding: fact or fitcion”. This really highlighted the need for QC of core analysis and ensuring we have a good understanding of what we are measuring!
On 17th June London Petrophysical Society will be holding a one day seminar entitled “Do you want more pay? What is net and pay, and the use and abuse of cutoffs”. We have a really good broad range of talks from service and operating companies, academics and consultrants covering everything from NMR to static and dynamic model methodology. Please see website for registration.
We are currently calling for abstracts for the “Drilling 101” one day seminar to be held on Thursday 25th Sept. If you would like to present a talk or would like to suggest a speaker then please get in touch. All details are on the website www.lps.org.uk
All the best,
Iain Whyte: LPS President
