Message From the President

Many thanks to LPS grant recipient, Rochelle Taylor, for her excellent talk at our last evening

meeting on Acoustic properties of fault rocks and their associated protoliths: an example

from the Carboneras fault zone, SE Spain.

At the AGM on 12th November we will have a number of important items to put before

the membership so please plan to attend. As well as approving last year’s minutes and

accounts, we have a new committee member to welcome, we have some news on the

membership fees and a proposal for a permanent memorial to Dick Woodhouse. Once

the business is concluded we will have a talk from Dr. Louise Anderson on life in the extreme

environment of deep-sea hydrothermal vents.

Feedback we have had from Universities and potential employers has suggested that

holding the University Open-day in the Autumn rather than the new year would be a

more effective way of recruiting students into the industry. So we have responded to

that feedback by planning a second University Open-day of the year for 14th November

at Imperial College, London. We will revert to one open-day a year from 2013 onwards.

Many thanks to Jeremy Farrow for his Stella effort in organising two events this year.

We are still looking for sponsors and industry sponsors and participants, contact Jeremy

if you want to take part.

Our next seminar is planned for Thursday 6th December, where we will be celebrating 70

years since the publication of the famous Archie paper ‘The Electrical Resistivity Log as

an Aid in Determining Some Reservoir Characteristics’ in the AIME Transactions. A series

of talks will look at the historical context of Archie, discuss the derivation, use and misuse

Archie parameters, look at some areas where Archie works and some areas where

Archie doesn't work.

The seminar will be followed by the President’s Evening, to be held at the Kings Head in

Stafford St, just around the corner from Burlington House, all members are welcome.

All the best

OPC is currently seeking Senior Petrophysicists for its clients worldwide.

Oilfield Production Consultants (OPC) is a globally renowned leader in the provision of

professional expertise, management and support to the Upstream Exploration and Production

sector of the Oil & Gas industry

Consultants are engaged by OPC and seconded into the client’s organisation on short, medium or long term assignments.

We supply individuals and integrated teams performing under OPC or client supervision. OPC in-house

technical resources; manpower and software technology, may be deployed in support of the seconded resource as

required.

Our reach is global and our service fully inclusive of recruitment, employment, immigration, on-boarding support

and In-country welfare.

We are seeking Petrophysical support for:

OPC’s in-house Projects and Studies teams

Specialised integrated subsurface teams

NOCs and IOCs worldwide

Senior Petrophysicists

Plan, supervise and coordinate the collection, analysis and evaluation of petrophysical data for well and reservoir studies in

order to generate appropriate field development plans. Participate in interdisciplinary reservoir study teams.

Software: Geoframe suite, Petroworks, Petrel & Emeraude

Petrophysicists, Field Development Study

Direct and supervise petrophysics matters, including ensuring the provision of unique advice and consultancy service in

petrophysics and especially in well log analysis and evaluation.

Operational Petrophysical Engineers

A Senior Petrophysicist is required to plan, supervise, coordinate and control the collection, analysis and evaluation of

petrophysical data for well operations. The consultant will be expected to provide Petrophysical support for our client’s oil f

fields. Support reservoir management activities and participate in interdisciplinary teams as well as developing and mentor

less experienced staff.

15+ years of experience in the Oil and Gas industry is desirable, with at least 10 years’ experience doing Petrophysical

operations. Must have a thorough understanding of open hole (both wire line and LWD), cased hole (RST/TDT) and

production logging tools, NMR and integrated production logging in horizontal wells. Experience of CCAL and SCAL
