Message from the LPS President

It is fast approaching AGM time at the LPS. This year has flown by, but we have managed to cram in a lot of events. So far this year the LPS has run seminars on New Technology, Unconventional Reservoir Petrophysics and Carbonates. We have also staged a university open day and eight evening meetings. Not bad for our small society. Credit for this goes to the members of the committee; they all offer their services for free and do an excellent job.

If you have attended one of our seminars over the last few years you will have certainly had to contact the VP Seminars, Robert Webber. Robert is leaving us this week to start an assignment in Rio de Janeiro. Many thanks to Robert for all his hard work, have a caipirinha on us.

The AGM is on Monday 8th November (6pm start) at The Geological Society. This is the members opportunity to find out about the financial state of the society, meet the committee and hear about next year’s programme of events. After the formal business of the meeting we traditionally have a presentation on a non-petrophysical topic. In past years we have been entertained with talks on dousing for water, the geology of wine growing areas and the archaeology of the Thames. This year we privileged to have Piers Corbyn talk about “Alternative Weather Forecasting”. Please try and attend what should be a very entertaining evening.

The programme for our Basic Formation Evaluation seminar on Monday 13th December is almost complete. See the poster in this newsletter for more details. See the poster in this newsletter for more details. The Basic FE seminars are aimed at “new” and non-petrophysicists who need to use log and core data. If you or your colleagues need a “crash course” in petrophysics this seminar would be ideal.

All the Best
