Message From the President
Dear Members & Friends of the LPS,It’s been just over a week since our One Day Seminar titled “Challenging Reservoirs” was held on 21st September. We had a significant turnout due to the interest shown in the topic, and I would like to thank all the Lecturers who provided excellent material for the day. Feedback from this seminar has been very positive, and it’s heartening to see participation rise after a sluggish year.
Our next event will be the Evening Meeting on Tuesday 17th October at 6:30pm. This will be the penultimate meeting before our AGM in November where we shall elect a new Executive Committee. We have the honour of Prodeo Yao Agbouti from the University of Leeds who will discuss one of England’s most important aquifers, titled “Flow variation with depth in the East Yorkshire chalk aquifer”. Refreshments will be available, and entrance is free as always.
For our technical article this month, special thanks go to one of our members on the Executive Committee, Joanne Tudge (VP Seminars) from Weatherford International Ltd. A thought-provoking article about the loss of petrophysical experience with the great crew change currently in progress.
Our final One Day Seminar for the year will be held on Thursday 14th December, with the title ‘Everything Formation Testing’. This is always a popular topic, and I can’t believe it has been 3 years since the previous seminar on sampling and fluids analysis was held back in 2014! The Call for Abstracts is now open, so please submit your brief before 31st October.
Sponsorship opportunities are now available for the SPWLA 69th Annual Logging Symposium, which as you are well aware by now – will be held in London early June 2018. This is a great opportunity to highlight your company and get global recognition at this prestigious event. Several different options are available, please see page 7 for further information on how to apply.
