A message from the President
A very big thank-you goes to Daniel Hopkins and Nathan Thomas for taking time out from their studies at Leicester University to present their MSc project research at the June evening meeting. Daniel & Nathan received financial support for their research through last year’s Iain Hillier Academic Award Scheme. It is good to see the next generation of petrophysicists presenting high quality work at the Society meetings. We are always looking for speakers for our monthly meetings. If you have a talk up your sleeve that you would like to present please contact VP technology, Derek Thomas ( email@example.com ).
Please note there is no evening meeting in August. Geoffrey Page’s talk on the 12th July on “Hydrophysics: The Petrophysics of drilling fluids and their effects on log data” will be your last chance until September to meet up with your LPS comrades and share a glass or two of wine.
The programme of the Carbonates III One-Day seminar on the 16th September is shaping up well. We will send out a programme and registration form in the next few weeks. This promises to be an excellent seminar comprising a balance of service companies, universities and operators. I often hear comments like “The petrophysical models don’t work in carbonates so why bother?” We hope that the Carbonates III seminar will be the perfect antidote to these sorts of comments and will provide an answer to the question. I urge you to all attend on the 16th September.
All the best
Adam Moss LPS President
