As we inch closer to resuming “normal” operations, I hope that all of you are as excited and eager to meet in person as I am! I’m sure most of you are aware but as of this past Monday, all Texans over the age of 16 are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. Even if you are on the fence about getting vaccinated, I encourage you to lend a helping hand and reach out to your friends and family to ensure to that those who want to register for the vaccine have the means and ability to do so.
The board is actively working towards planning in-person meetings but while we wait for a few more pieces to come together, our volunteers are hard at work planning a plethora of virtual events in April. Our virtual study group meeting on April 1st will feature a presentation by Mark Murray on how the use of bottomhole pressure data can help gain a better understanding of the reservoir and can assist in optimizing completion designs (registration here). On April 7th, Jeremy Arendt with Montrose Lane will present the latest trends in energy technology venture capital (register here). Our final Distinguished Lecturer for the 2020-2021 season will be held on April 14th featuring Kyle Haustveit with Devon Energy. The presentation will focus on how to make decisions using completion diagnostic tools in unconventional reservoirs (register here). Finally, *drum roll please* the YPs are hosting their first in-person networking event in over a year! Details for the event and registration can be found here.
As we start to come to terms with what life will look like post-COVID, the world is bracing for change and SPE is no different. It is my honor and privilege to present to you the 2021-2022 SPE Dallas Board of Directors:
Our volunteers on the current Board of Directors have navigated through one of most challenging years imaginable so before some of them retire from their roles, I urge you to please reach out and thank them for their time and effort in helping this section.
As always, please feel free to call/email me with any feedback and I look forward to seeing all of you soon!
