As we conclude the first month of 2009, I'm reminded of a quote by Albert Einstein.
He said, "I never think of the future; it will come soon enough". I
think I'm going to adopt that thinking and quit worrying about what oil &
gas prices will do in the next 12 months. The next 12 months will come and go
and prices will be what they will be and we will live with it and go about our
business making the best of the situation at hand. Hang in there, as they say.
February 5, we will honor those members of our section who have completed 50 years
of service to SPE. Eight members will be awarded the Legion of Honor Award, two
of them posthumously. They are:
John Eibeck (deceased)
Raymond Blohm (deceased)
in awe at what these men have accomplished and I'm grateful to them for the advances
in technology that they themselves have pioneered and left for us to use in our
daily quest to improve the recovery of fossil energy. Please be at the luncheon
on February 5 to help me honor these pioneers of our industry.
I encourage you all to seek out business acquaintances and colleagues who would
want to join SPE. The new "One Member at a Time" membership contest
is in full swing and you could be a winner of a $200 gift card if you recommend
and sign up new members between now and August 31, 2009. Check the section web
site for further details. It is www.spemc.org.
you to every member of this section for your time and interest in making the Mid-Continent
Section the number one section in the world. Keep up the good work.
2008 2009 Chairman
