The LASPE Golf Tournament May 10! April 9th Petroleum Technology speaker is Glenn Swanson on Waterfloods at The Grand, WRM in San Jose this April 23-26 hosted by Golden Gate SPE Section

Dear Friends and Members of SPE,

The LASPE Annual Charity Golf Tournament will be Friday May 10, 2019 at the Navy Course in Cypress. We had a great time last year. This year’s tournament will be as much fun. The luncheon, awards, and raffle will immediately follow the golf. Last year was a sell-out, so please sign up early.

After more than 50 years having the LASPE Luncheons at the Long Beach Petroleum Club, our April 9 Luncheon will be at The Grand, 4101 East Willow Street in Long Beach. Registration will start at 11:30 with lunch at 11:45 and our speaker at about noon. It will be greatly appreciated if you would RSVP me if you are attending. The Grand needs to have enough staff and resources available to make sure everyone gets a good lunch. We had lots of flexibility at the Petroleum Club. Unfortunately, at The Grand, or most anywhere else, there is limited flexibility.

Our speaker at the April 9 Luncheon will be Glenn Swanson. Glenn has worked on practically every field in the Los Angeles area. He will be speaking on how to improve the efficiency of water injection wells. With all the waterfloods we have in the Los Angeles Basin, this will be a pertinent subject for most of us.

Finally, I again want to remind everyone that the SPE Western Regional Meeting will be in San Jose, California, from April 23 to 26. There will be some excellent presentations at the Meeting. Chevron and Google have really stepped up in sponsorship to help make this a great event.
