About FESM:

Our Sponsors

 

Our sponsors are gratefully acknowledged for their support in helping to create a discussion forum and developing the Malaysian formation evaluation community.

 

 

PREAMBLE:

The purpose of the Formation Evaluation Society of Malaysia (FESM), a Chapter of the SOCIETY OF PETROPHYSICISTS AND WELL LOG ANALYSTS (SPWLA) is, in general, the same as stated in Article IV of the SPWLA Amended Articles of Incorporation, and specifically to advance the science of formation evaluation. The FESM is responsible to, and subject to, the Amended Articles and by-laws of the parent SPWLA.

 

MEMBERSHIP:

To apply for membership in the FESM please send an email to the secretariat at fesm.secretariat@gmail.com indicating your first name, last name, company, current position and preferred email address, which will be added to our mail distribution list. Unlike SPWLA, there is no requirement for active engagement in formation evaluation through analysis of well logs and/or related data, no references are required and there are no dues or fees to be paid for FESM membership. Regular mailings will keep FESM members up to date with our technical programme and other events.
