Comments from the President of the Dallas Geophysical Society


President’s message for February 2017

I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday.  I was surprised to see that the joint Dallas Geophysical/Geological Holiday Party was so well attended.  The food, entertainment, raffle prizes, and conversation was an excellent way to kick off this year’s holiday season.  Despite the downturn in the oil industry the two societies absorbed a minor financial loss on the venue, which should be should be considered a success.  I would like to personally thank all members who contributed to its success especially Adam Collard the 2nd Vice President of the Dallas Geophysical Society and Tina Manning the 2nd Vice President of the Dallas Geological Society for planning the venue.

Recently, the board of directors decided to transform the Spring DGS Golf Tournament to a Fall DGS Golf Tournament to be held on October 17th.  This change would allow for a reasonable separation between the Dallas Geological Society’s Annual Crawfish Boil and our fundraising event.  We are also working on a new annual corporate sponsorship tier structure and the instantiation of a Sponsorship Chairman.  Additional details on these changes will follow shortly. 

The joint Dallas Geophysical/Geological monthly luncheon is scheduled to be held on February 16th at the Denbury Resources Plano campus located at 5320 Legacy Drive, Plano, TX.  Rob Mayer who manages a geoconsulting division at CGG and Jason Mintz a reservoir geologist with CGG will be presenting a case study entitled, “Tackling the empirical and conceptual driven models for geologic and geophysical science integration to characterize the Wolfcamp reservoir system to predict future production.”  I hope to see you all there.
