June 2012 Newsletter

Message From the President

Mid month we will hold the Shale Oil and Gas seminar at Burlington House, with a great range of speakers and topics from industry and academia, see the website for details and please book early as this one is proving to be popular.

The remaining seminars in 2012 are:-

18th September Practical Wellsite Petrophysics

6th December 70 years of Archie

Many thanks to SPWLA Distinguished lecturer, Gordon L. Moake for his excellent talk on the Photoelectric log in May.

There is no evening meeting this month, but in July we are getting two talks, one form Brian Moffat on reservoir water geochemistry and another from Stephen Amuda on geomechanical models. Stephan has received LPS grants under our Iain Hillier award scheme to support his PhD.

We are doing very well with sponsorship for 2012, with thanks to : Baker Hughes, BG, Centrica, Dong, ExxonMobil, Gaia, Halliburton, Hess, Kirk Petrophysics, Perenco, Senergy, Schlumberger, Weatherford Labs and Weatherford. But we are wondering if there are any other companies or organisations who would like to raise their profile within the Petrophysics community by sponsoring our evening meetings?

Currently our evening meetings cost us the price of hiring the Geological Society and the catering, but generate no revenue to cover these costs.

Getting sponsorship for evening meetings will allow us more resources to finance our student and academic support. Please contact me for details.

All the best
