March 2011 Newsletter
Message from the LPS President
I hope that none of you or your colleagues has been adversely affected by the upheavals in North Africa and the Middle East. When I see pictures of people laying down their lives in cities I recently visited and worked in it certainly puts things in perspective.
We still have plenty of places left at the “Infatuation with Saturation – Water Properties and Water Saturation” seminar on the 17th March. See this newsletter for the programme and a registration form. You can turn up on the day if you wish, but if you can send in a registration form in advance we would appreciate it, so we know catering numbers. The seminar should address many common issues and is a must for all jobbing petrophysicists.
We are shifting the start time of evening lectures to 6.30pm from this month onwards. Hopefully the later start will allow more time for members to travel in after work. The next evening talk is next Monday 7th March. Celestino Artur from BP will be talking about “Geostopping, the real value of at bit measurements in deep water Angola”.
We have had a request from Leeds University for help in finding suitable petrophysics focussed MSc projects for their students. The projects start in early March and have to be completed by mid August. The students can work in your company’s offices or from the university. Over the last few years I have worked with a number of students on MSc research projects and always found it very rewarding. It is a great way of getting a small research project started and often leads to full time employment for the student within the host company. If you think you can help out please contact the VP External Relations Jeremy Farrow, firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you soon at one of our events.
All the best
Adam Moss LPS President
