January 2014 Newsletter
Message From the President
Let me start by wishing you all a very safe, happy and prosperous New Year on behalf of the LPS committee.
As many of you will know, as of Jan 2014 I will be taking over from Mike Millar as President of LPS. I must concede it is with trepidation as the bar has been set very high indeed during my time as a member, and having served on the committee under Dick, Adam & Mike I have enjoyed fantastic leadership and a very successful period for LPS. I am however joined in my plight by a fantastic committee for 2014 that I am confident will serve us all proud, and keep me on the straight & narrow! Mike will remain heavily involved as Past President so a guiding hand won’t be far away.
On behalf of all LPS members, I would like to thank and congratulate the exiting members of the committee for a job VERY well done and for excellent service to LPS. At same time I would like to welcome our new members of the committee to the fold. I trust you find it as rewarding and fulfilling as I have done these past years as VP Technology.
We had an extremely successful Well Integrity one day seminar on 11th Dec 2013, followed by the President’s evening. Many thanks once again to Senergy, Schlumberger, Baker Hughes and Weatherford for kind sponsorship for the event. Massive thanks to the organising committee and the wonderful speakers. Presentations have been compiled and will be distributed to attendees shortly.
Our next event on the calendar is the New Technology one day seminar, to be held on 30th Jan 2014 and is free to attend for all. Thanks to Liz Davis for securing an excellent line up of speakers. It promises to be a thoroughly interesting and informative day. No registration is necessary for this event, and I should point out presentations will not be shared post event due to sensitive nature for much of the material.
Lastly, can I urge you please to consider submitting an abstract for our March one day seminar on Well Placement including Geomechanics and Geosteering. You will find further details in this newsletter.
All the best,
Iain Whyte: LPS President
