The SIPES Houston Chapter Presents the Fall 2009 Continuing Education Seminar:


“Applications of New Geophysical and Petrophysical Technology for the Independent”


Friday, September 18, 2009


The past ten years has seen an explosion in technological advances in the oil and gas industry, particularly in the fields of geophysics and petrophysics. At the same time, reductions in hardware and software costs have made the resulting new geophysical and petrophysical tools available to companies of all sizes. Therefore, it has never been more important that geoscientists understand the implications of these tools as they relate to finding oil and gas and/or better reservoir characterization


This one-day seminar will focus on the application of new geophysical and petrophysical technology for geologists, geophysicists and engineers employed in the oil and gas business. Twelve experts from majors, independents, consultants and service companies will present “how-to” talks on the newest technologies in the oil business. Learn about it on the 18th. Use it to find oil and gas on the 19th.
