Comments from the President of the Dallas Geophysical Society


President’s message for April 2017

I am pleased to announce we had over thirty people attend Sheri Bowman’s presentation on advances in microseismic analysis.  if anyone would like to follow up Sheri, she can be reached at

To reiterate, the Spring DGS Golf Tournament will be rebranded as the Fall DGS Golf Tournament to be tentatively held on October 17th.  With this rebranding, the board of directors decided to take complete ownership of the funding, planning, staffing, and proceeds related to this event.  Thus, we do not expect to receive any revenue from the Dallas Geological Society’s Annual Crawfish Boil but will remain an active sponsor for their fundraising event. 

As a reminder, our next Dallas Geophysical Society monthly luncheon is scheduled to be held on Tuesday, April 18th at the Denbury Resources Plano campus located at 5320 Legacy Drive, Plano, TX.  The board of directors decided to change the date of the venue from our typical Thursday luncheon to Tuesday to avoid conflicts with the Dallas Geological Society’s Annual Crawfish Boil being held on Thursday, April 20th.  This change would also accommodate our dual members since there is not a Dallas Geological Society luncheon this month.  This month we will be hosting the 2017 SEG Distinguished Lecturer, Paul Hatchell.  Paul is Shell’s principal technical expert for 4D reservoir surveillance.  He is currently working on 4D seismic acquisition and interpretation techniques, seafloor deformation monitoring and training new geoscientists. For our luncheon, he will be talking about time-lapse seismic monitoring of reservoir deformation.  

Also during the luncheon, Trevor Richards president-elect will be announcing his 2017-2018 cabinet nominees and provide an update on the new annual corporate sponsorship tier structure. I hope to see you all there.
