Happy New Year to all of you. Crude oil prices have shown some improvement over the last few weeks, and I hope we will continue to see activity picking up with Tulsa-based companies.

Our Section’s first luncheon of 2018 will be held January 17 at the Summit Club. Chad Senters with Core Lab will be speaking; his topic is titled “Diversion – Be Careful What You Ask For”. Please make sure to make a reservation by the morning of January 15. We have several other speakers and a couple short courses scheduled for the next few months, and I look forward to sharing our technical program with each of you.

If you haven’t done so yet, please make sure to renew your SPE membership. I know I always wait until the last minute to take care of things like that, so I am sure many of you do as well.

I hope 2018 is a productive and prosperous year for all of you.

Nathan Buchanan
2017-2018 Chairman
