January 2011 Newsletter
Message from the LPS President:
Happy New Year to you all. I hope you managed to take some time off over the last few weeks to recharge your batteries. The beginning of the year is always a very busy time for the LPS. On the 17th January (12.30-18.00) we have our New Technology Seminar – see this newsletter for the programme. This is an opportunity for the service companies to show off all their new bits of kit. The seminar is free and open to all.
This year’s University Open Day will be on the 2nd February at the South Bank University in London. The Open Day is our chance to promote petrophysics to students studying geosciences. The day will consist of presentations and trade show style displays from service companies and operators. We would like to get as many companies involved as possible. If you would like to take part please contact the VP External Relations: Jeremy Farrow (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Encouraging students to become petrophysicists is a major focus for the LPS. It was great to see so many attend December’s Basic Formation Evaluation seminar. A total of 80 people attended the seminar and a quarter of these were students. We hear a lot about the demographics of our industry and how we are an ageing population. Hopefully we have encouraged a few younger society members to step up and become the next generation of petrophysicists.
Please do not forget to get your membership renewal form in to Victoria. Hope to see you soon at one of our events.
All the Best
Adam Moss LPS President
