Our mission is to provide the members of the Westside Study Group, located in the energy corridor of Houston, with current and relevant technologies covering topics related to drilling and completions of oil and gas wells. We strive to provide an open forum that covers both onshore and offshore topics which challenge the way we approach our business and strengthen our members’ technical knowledge. It is the goal of the WSG to provide an atmosphere to its members that enhances the cross flow of information between presenters and attendees, as well as a network of varying disciplines to aid in our members’ overall professional competence.
