July 2011 Newsletter
Message from the LPS President
I must thank everyone who participated in our recent Pore Pressure and Wellbore Stability seminar. Feedback from some of the 90 people who attended indicated that this was one of our best seminars for a long time. The quality of the presentations was excellent and they managed to stimulate some good debate. We are collecting permission from each of the speakers to distribute copies of the presentations to all who attended. Once we have these we will upload the talks to the LPS website and send out a link and password to all attendees.
The next evening talk will be on Monday 11th July, at 6.30pm. Simon Stromberg from Senergy will be talking about “Uncertainty and Monte-Carlo simulations in Petrophysics”. Simon is a great supporter of the LPS and a very entertaining speaker. The talk is free and all are welcome, members and non-members.
Note that we do not have an evening talk in August. We reconvene on the 5th September with a presentation from Peter Fitch at Imperial College on his recent research.
The next one day seminar will be on Thursday 15th September and is another in our Basic Formation Evaluation series. The Basic FE seminars are aimed at “new” and non-petrophysicists. We are designing a program of talks to cover capillary pressure theory, introduce some of the more popular models and present recent case studies. See this newsletter for a poster with more information. The 2009 version of this seminar was very popular so early registration is advised. A registration form is attached to this newsletter, please send to Peter Fitch, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you soon at one of our events.
All the Best
Adam LPS President
