Resistivity SIG - Fall 2017 Meeting
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 Modeling Special Interest Group
(Rt-SIG) is an active society of resistivity logging specialists and people
interested in resistivity related formation evaluation topics. Rt-SIG organizes meetings twice a
year, featuring cutting-edge technical presentations and discussions on
resistivity formation evaluation topics.
The upcoming meeting will
be hosted by Randy Gold, Director of Research for Wireline and LWD, Baker Hughes, a GE Company. We are now calling for abstracts and presentations.
Registration fee is $10 for students, $20 for SPWLA members and $30 for
Current speakers and presentations include the below. We still have other presenters to be confirmed, and space available for other speakers.
