Of Interest

If you do any log interpretation at all, you need to check out the Historical Chart Books on CD-ROM that has been made available by the DWLS. Special thanks to Bob 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.

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.
