SPWLA NMR SIG Conference 2018

Houston, Texas, February 23, 2018

Chevron Building, 1500 Louisiana St.

 Everyday NMR:  From Unconventionals to New Horizons

Building on the success of the 2016 NMR Topical Conference, an NMR SIG has been established within SPWLA in order to facilitate communication within the community of people interested in using NMR for the discovery and development of oil and gas reservoirs.  The first NMR SIG conference will be in Houston on Feb. 23, 2018.  Join us as we explore NMR as an EVERYDAY tool, with special focus on the NMR of unconventional formations as well as the new horizons of the future.

For the first NMR SIG conference, all talks will be invited.  Members and non-members welcome.  Conference registration fee TBD.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance SIG

NMR SIG was established in September 2016, as one of the outcomes of the 2016 SPWLA Spring Topical Conference on NMR, to provide a focal organization designed to bring the NMR community of experts and practitioners together to educate each other as well as the broader community on the proven concepts and applications of NMR. The SIG will also serve as a venue to discuss new ideas for technology and applications to enhance understanding of the formations and the fluids contained in them.

The SIG’s initial goals include, establishing industry standards for NMR measurements, publishing a special volume in Petrophysics with peer reviewed technical papers on NMR technologies and applications and establishing a committee to organize future SIG conferences and workshops.

Membership in the NMR SIG is open to all current members in good standing of the SPWLA at no additional fee. It is a great opportunity to learn and contribute to the advancement of NMR to formation evaluation as well as to network and work with the experts in this field.
