OCEC Honors LASPE Members with Engineering Awards, Upcoming WRM offering a great program, classes and exhibits

Dear Friends and Members of SPE,

We were honored by the Orange County Engineering Council by having four LASPE members and two USC SPE members receive awards at their February 17th Awards Banquet (pages 16-18). Dr. Iraj Ershaghi of USC was chosen for the James E. Ballinger Engineer of the Year Award. In addition to all his remarkable accomplishments in Petroleum Engineering, Dr. Ershaghi has been a great friend to the LASPE. He has always been there to contribute his time and effort to help make our Section successful. The OCEC made a great selection in honoring Dr. Ershaghi with this prestigious award.

Scott McGurk was chosen for the Outstanding Engineering Merit Award. Scott has had a distinguished career as a petroleum engineer working on projects in just about every oil field in the Los Angeles Basin. Besides his professional career, Scott has made a significant contribution to the LASPE including being our Chair in 2006/2007.

Steve Shryock has just completed a 38-year career with Chevron. He has led the development of huge projects around the world including being the sub-surface manager for the $54 Billion Gorgon Project off the Australian coast. Steve has also been a great asset for both the LASPE and the USC SPE. He is currently mentoring the USC Petro Bowl students for their upcoming competition. Steve was awarded the Outstanding Engineering Merit Award for his accomplishments and contributions. JR Smoyer was awarded the Outstanding Young Engineer Award. JR has helped Tiger Wireline advance its presence in the Los Angeles Basin. In addition to his professional work in the energy industry, JR has been an active Board Member of the LASPE. He is the Chair of our Annual Charity Golf Tournament and leads our Young Professional events.
