Message From the President

Dear Member,

Since I wrote to you last we have held two very successful events. In these challenging times it is a delight to see so many still capitalising on the good value the LPS sessions offer and the opportunity to further our professional networks.

On 24th September we held a one day seminar titled “Old data, New tricks: Fresh challenges, Mature targets, and Scientific oddities” which was well attended by a healthy cross section of academic and industry delegates. This was a jointly hosted seminar between LPS and U.K. International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP). A thoroughly successful day and generated some excellent discussion.

On 20th October we were lucky enough to host Mark Proett from Aramco Services Company presenting a talk titled “Automatically Quantifying Wireline and LWD Pressure-Test Quality”. Mark is one of the SPWLA Distinguished Lecturers and we greatly appreciate him making the lengthy trip from USA to present to LPS members. A fabulously enlightening talk.

Looking forward to upcoming events, our next meeting will be the AGM to be held on 17th November where we will present the LPS 2016 Executive Committee for the approval of the membership. Please do make a special effort to come along and influence decision making on your Society.

As is customary, the AGM will be immediately followed by an off topic talk, this year delivered by Dr Michael Ala of Imperial College. We will learn more of the life and works of William Smith who’s famous Geological Map of Britain was produced in 1815 – 200th anniversary this year. Moreover, the famous map is at the Geological Society!

Our next one day seminar on 2nd December is titled “Petrophysical Uncertainty” which we are still open to receive abstracts for. We have already secured a great number of terrific talks, so if you would like to get involved please submit your abstract as soon as possible. All instructions on the website. This event will be followed by The Presidents Evening. (See Events Tab for further details of this great night out!)

All the very best. I look forward to seeing at these upcoming events.  

Best Regards,

Iain Whyte – LPS President
