Dear Colleagues,

The January 14th luncheon presented by David Biddick discussed the use of Downhole Compressor systems for gas wells at the producing sand face in order to maximum gas withdrawal rates while minimizing liquid loading. Our February keynote luncheon speaker will be Distinguished Lecturer (DL), David S. Smith who will present a systematic process approach to addressing and solving conformance problems in floods or strong aquifer drive fields.

Following on the discussion thread of DL’s, Ted Frankiewicz requested feedback from the LA SPE membership regarding the top 3 DL’s for the 2020-2021 circuit. Having received the top choices, we will now be working with the other Western Region SPE Sections and requesting their choices. At that time, we will try to converge to a consensus to what the majority of our regional membership is requesting regarding the selected topics and speakers and I will follow-up in due course.
