SPE Fort Worth

Chairperson's Newsletter - January 2023

Fort Worth SPE Section,

Happy 2023!


We got off to a great start at the January luncheon listening to Michael Rainbolt speak on what we need to know about fracture driven interactions. I am not sure if it was the speaker, the topic, or the fact that we are back at the Petroleum Club, but we had a great turnout including several new faces. I hope to see you all back on February 16th.

We have another great meeting coming up on February 16th where Thad Toups with Haas Engineering will present, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year… Reserve Report Season.”

On March 16th we will be joined by Nicolas Bustamante and will hear him speak on CO2 transportation.

We have decided to implement some sponsorship opportunities that will support the growth of our scholarship opportunities, as well as to help offset the costs of our monthly section meetings.

Advertising Sponsorships will enable us to grow our financial support of the next generation. This is and will continue to be a top priority for the section, and this is one way that we feel there is opportunity to strengthen that piece of our section’s work.

Section Meeting Sponsorships will help us offset the significant increases in costs from our venues over the last few years that have been passed on to the members in attendance.  Sponsorships for monthly meetings will help us manage these costs and allow pricing to be stabilized or even reduced, much like they are this coming month. As you will see when you register, early registration of members is $10 less than last month thanks to the support of Albert McDaniel and Farmers Insurance.

Do not forget that we are taking applications for next year’s scholarships. Each scholarship is for up to $3,000 per year and are renewed each year if the listed criteria are met. Please spread the word to anyone you feel may be interested.

I hope you all are having a great start to 2023 and I look forward to seeing you at our next monthly meeting.

Best Regards,

Briley Hicks
SPE Fort Worth Chairperson
