June 2011 Newsletter
Message from the LPS President
There is no evening talk this month but the LPS committee are not taking it easy. We are busy planning for the Pore Pressure Prediction and Wellbore Stability one day seminar on the 16th June. The subject is one which concerns drillers, reservoir engineers and petrophysicists and, we hope, that the programme reflects this multidisciplinary interest. See this newsletter for an agenda and registration form. There are only a few weeks to go so please send your completed registration forms to Ian Draper, firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
My thanks go to Sam Matthews and David Hartigan from Leicester University for their excellent shale gas talks at last month’s evening meeting. I am sure shale gas discussions will start to become a common feature in the LPS calendar. “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.
The programme for this year’s Basic FE seminar is taking shape. The seminar will be on Thursday 15th September and is a re-run of the successful “Saturation Height Function” seminar from 2009. The Basic FE seminars are aimed at “new” and nonpetrophysicists. So if you know of any young petrophysicists, engineers or geologists who would be interested in spending a day focussing on the wonderful world of capillary pressure and fluid contacts please encourage them to come along.
Finally, I owe an apology to all who attended last year’s “Carbonates III” seminar. I had promised to collect copies of all the presentations and distribute them to all attendees. Unfortunately, I forgot to do this. The presentations will be uploaded to the LPS website in the next week and an e-mail containing access information will be sent to all who attended the seminar.
Hope to see you soon at one of our events.
All the Best
Adam LPS President
