the Monthly Newsletter?!?
to get you back on the list.
If you do any log interpretation at all, you need to check
out the Historical Chart Books on
that has been made available by the DWLS. Special thanks to
Cluff for making this possible.
Another valuable resource, made available by the Phil Nelson
of the USGS, is
A Catalog of
Porosity and Permeability from Core Plugs in Siliciclastic Rocks.
Almost New! Even better, we have some
other goodies for sale.
The next lunch meeting will be 11:30 am on Tuesday,
January 16, 2018 at The Wynkoop. To
make your reservations for the luncheon please use

noon on the Thursday prior.
Presentation: Application of Integrated Core and 3D Image-Based Rock Physics to Characterize Niobrara Chalk Properties
Abstract: Core analysis (CA) is challenged in physically measuring permeability (K),
capillary pressure (Pc), “irreducible” water saturation (Swi), and relative permeability
(2-P Kr and 3-P Kr) for rocks with permeability of 0.000001-0.1 millidarcies. Measurements are
complicated by stress-dependency, high capillary pressure, microcracks, differing PHI-K-Sw ..
Speaker: Alan Byrnes, Senior Petrophysical Advisor, Whiting Petroleum Corporation
About the monthly meetings.
Our Next Generation
Since the DWLS does not officially have a Young Members contingent, the DWLS board has decided to
support the efforts of the Next Generation of Oil and Gas Professionals (NGOGP). NGOGP is “a collaboration
of young professionals in the oil and gas industry, including geologists, geophysicists, engineers, landmen,
and accountants. We are an extension of each professional group – RMAG, DGS, SPE, DAPL, DWLS and COPAS –
coming together to facilitate interdisciplinary outreach and networking. Through a series of sponsored
events, we hope to engage and recruit an active core of young professionals who will become the next
generation of leaders in our organizations.“
Please consider Sponsoring the NGOGP, as this society is solely able to function based on donations.
For more information on NGOGP please visit
their website or you can contact
Stefani Brakenhoff your
DWLS representative on the NGOGP board with any questions or to get on the mailing list.
Membership (or just your memory) lapsed? Go to our
page and pay for your annual membership dues. Even
better, select the Lifetime option to eliminate the worries
entirely. While you're there, you can also make a
reservation for the next luncheon.
