It is the board of director’s pleasure to announce the 2023-2024 scholarship program. The program aims to attract engineering students interested in a career in the Oil & Gas Industry. Our goal is to promote local interest in up-and-coming talent who will be the future of our industry. We want to encourage students to pursue science and engineering curriculums and to increase their awareness of future career opportunities.

Golf Tournament Success, O&G Personnel in demand, CO2, California Oil Profit Legislation

Dear Colleagues,

It was great seeing people at this year’s golf tournament.  The 2023 LA Basin SPE Scholarship Golf Tournament was held on April 21 at the Navy Golf Course. The tournament was a great success and raised funds for local youth scholarships. We hope everyone who participated enjoyed it and greatly appreciate everyone who helped us raise money, donated prizes, and purchased raffle and 50/50 tickets.

I have long argued, as many reading this have, that even as the energy industry moves toward a net-zero carbon economy the personnel and knowledge in the traditional oil & gas industry will remain in demand CCUS, hydrogen storage, and characterization of geothermal formations.

Despite decades of CO2 injection in Norway, there are no EOR projects in Europe, read more about the differences of CO2 injection projects in Europe when compared to American and Canadian CO2 projects. With all the potential benefits and challenges of using hydraulic fracturing for steam injection (HFSI) in the oil and gas industry, more research and development is needed to assess the feasibility and impact of the technology. Texas can reduce emissions through carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) but there is a lack of regulatory and policy support to advance the technology. A study using simulations recently published in Geophysical Research Letters, suggests CO2 will remain deep in the subsurface for millions of years, even if the overlying low-permeability rocks were fractured.
