August 2011 Newsletter

Message from the LPS President

I hope you are all well and enjoying the excellent summer weather. Although as I type it is raining and today’s SW looks very close to 1. Due to summer holidays the LPS takes a break in August from its programme of monthly meetings.

We reconvene on the 5th September with a presentation from Dr Peter Fitch of Imperial College on “Exploring heterogeneity in carbonate petrophysical properties, from recent sediments to subsurface reservoirs”. I recently viewed a carbonate core in which permeability repeatedly varied by 4 orders of magnitude on a centimetre scale. I am looking forward to hearing Peter’s thoughts on petrophysics in these types of rocks.

The agenda for our “Fluids in the reservoir: understanding capillary pressure and saturation height functions” seminar on Thursday 15th September is being finalised. So far we have confirmed talks covering capillary pressure theory, all the common saturation height function models, wettability, fluid contacts and case studies. This seminar is a must for any petrophysicists or engineers who need a concise introduction to the subject. A registration form is attached to this newsletter; please send to Peter Fitch, p.fitch@imperial.ac.uk.

Hope to see you soon at one of our events.

All the Best

Adam LPS President
