Optimism rising with Oil Price, Speaker on Taxes & Reserves, WRM
Dear Friends and Members of SPE,
With oil prices now above $60 per barrel and seemingly rising, we can now be optimistic about the future of the oil industry. The turmoil of the past few years is not completely gone. However, activity continues to pick up and new opportunities are arising.
I was pleased that we had such a good turnout for our January Luncheon. Distinguished Lecturer Scot Buell from Chevron came down on a rainy day from Bakersfield to discuss good operational practices for waterfloods. This was an especially pertinent topic for us in the Los Angeles area where we have quite a few ongoing waterfloods.
We have another excellent speaker for our February luncheon. Brad Dewitt of California Resources Corporation will discuss “Taxation of Mineral Rights and Reserves”. Please let your friends in the Land Department know about this talk. They will be most interested in some of the topics that Brad will review.
In March Distinguished Lecturer Patrick Brand will be presenting his talk on “Breaking Down Conventional Barriers with Managed Pressure Drilling”. We are really appreciative of Patrick coming to Southern California to give his speech. He is replacing Margaret Crichton who is not able to make it here due to health reasons.
