Message From the President
Dear Members & Friends of the LPS,All abstracts have now been received for our third One Day Seminar which is coming up quickly – in a little over five weeks! The seminar is titled ‘From Petrophysics to Geomodel’ and will explore the useful subject of upscaling petrophysical data to a static geomodel. From porosity and saturation to fluid contacts and saturation height models, supplemented of course by real data and fresh case studies. We have secured some leading industry experts, so be sure to register on our website for this event on Wednesday 5th July.
On Tuesday 6th June we have the pleasure of hosting German Merletti at our Evening Meeting. German is a Field Study Petrophysicist at BP, working in Unconventional Reservoirs Technology. His presentation will be ‘How Pore-Scale Attributes May Be Used to Derive Robust Drainage and Imbibition Water Saturation Models in Complex Tight-Gas Reservoirs’ and is sure to draw a crowd! Entrance is free, and of course will be followed by wine & savouries.
This will be our last Evening Meeting for some months, as there is no meeting during the Summer (July & August). So after our Seminar on 5th July we shall re-convene with hopefully some good suntans on Tuesday 5th September.
The SPWLA 58th Annual Symposium will be held in Oklahoma City on June 17th—21st, and there will be several members of the LPS attending. The subcommittee is making steady progress in preparations for the 2018 London event, which will provide much benefit to us as the Host Chapter. A video highlighting the attractions of London has been prepared, and will be shown at the end of the Oklahoma event to showcase London. Furthermore there will be a ‘London 2018’ stand in Oklahoma, so if you are going and wish to assist on our stand, please contact either myself or the committee chairman Clive Sirju.
