Comments from our President

November 1, 2014

Let me start with several thank you notes.

First, I would like to thank Denbury for their wonderful hospitality for our October 16 meeting. Their support for our activities is outstanding. Secondly, I would like to thank our hard working BOD members for getting such an attractive advertisement and sponsorship request for the Holiday Party in circulation and on line. These include Erin Medina, Julie Owen, and Dillon LaFoy. This is another grand step in making the 2014 Holiday Party as successful as last year.

I would also like to mention that Nancy House, who is one of our members, has received a rather outstanding award. The Association for Women Geoscientists have given her the “Professional Excellence” award for 2014. Congratulations from the DGS, Nancy.

As I am writing this letter, I am in Denver at the SEG convention. This is such an important event for us that most of the Board of Directors of our organization have been sent here by their companies. This event rather dictates the focus for our interests for the year to come, and perhaps some contacts for speakers for our meetings.

I guess it is no surprise that many sessions were devoted to unconventional resources. The other key topics are anisotropy as it relates to both imaging and fracture detection. The user’s frustration with the flood of seismic attributes has generated several full sessions on rock physics, and rock physics templates.

The process of “hard wiring” the seismic data to structural and stratigraphic rock properties is very exciting to me, because it has been a long time in coming.

Our next meeting on November 20 is the Joint DGGS Luncheon, which will be a talk by Matt McChesney and Beau Tinnin of Pioneer and is guaranteed to be a success, so I will see you there.

All the best,
Don Macpherson
