Resistivity SIG - Spring 2017 Meeting

SPWLA is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to advancing the science of petrophysics and formation evaluation through well logging and other techniques applicable to exploitation of gas, oil and other minerals. Founded in 1959, the organization serves as a voice of shared interests for scientists in the petroleum and mineral industries, strengthens petrophysical education and increases awareness of roles petrophysics play in the oil and gas industry as well as the scientific community.

Nested under SPWLA and based in Houston, Resistivity Modeling Special Interest Group (Rt-SIG) is an active society of resistivity logging specialists and people interested in resistivity related topics. Rt-SIG organizes meetings twice a year, featuring cutting-edge technical presentations and heated discussions on resistivity logging topics.

The upcoming meeting will be hosted by Aria Abubakar, Interpretation Engineering Manager & Scientific Advisor at Schlumberger.  We are now calling for abstracts and presentations. Registration fee is $10 for students, $20 for SPWLA members and $30 for non-members.


DATE Thursday, April 20, 2017 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM (CDT)

LOCATION: Schlumberger WesternGeco -10001 Richmond Ave, Houston, TX 77042


$10 for students -  $20 for SPWLA members  - $30 for non-members

Resistivity Special Interest Group

The Resistivity Modeling Special Interest Group(Rt-SIG) is dedicated to the modeling, characterization, and application of resistivity logging for petrophysical evaluation.Founded in November 1995, the Rt-SIG is an independent, member-run, not-for-profit organization. It provides an open discussion platform to petrophysicists, scientists, log analysts, individual consultants, people from academia and etc to share (and explain) “strange” resistivity log responses and conduct high level technical discussions to acquisition, interpretation, and integration of resistivity wellbore data.

There are two meetings every year; one is in Spring and the other is in Fall.Announcements are sent out two months prior to each meeting to all of the members. Please feel free to pass on meeting information to those who may not be on our email distribution list. If you are interested in attending, but are not currently on the distribution list, please contact one of the Officers:
