Resistivity SIG SPRING 2018 Meeting: CALLING FOR TOPICS & PAPERS!
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
under SPWLA and based in Houston, Resistivity Special Interest Group
(Rt-SIG) is an active group of resistivity specialists, and for people
generally interested in resistivity-related formation evaluation. Rt-SIG organizes meetings twice a
year (Spring & Fall), featuring technical presentations and discussions on
a variety of resistivity formation evaluation topics.
The Rt-SIG 2018 Spring Meeting is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday 14 March 2018 at Rice University, Houston. We are now calling for special topics, abstracts and presentations.
The registration fee will be $10 for students, $20 for SPWLA members and $30 for
