Welcome to the start of 2015-2016 Mid-Continent SPE Year! I hope all of you enjoyed your summer. We have planned great informative luncheons and fun activities for you! Although the current status of the oil and gas industry is not optimal, we must focus on technology, learning and innovation that will lead all of us to be more efficient petroleum professionals. Many changes have been occurring in the industry in Tulsa but we need to stay committed and participate even in these tough times.

We will start with the SPE luncheon "Micro-Guide Logging" presented by David Moore of Gyrodata on September 16th. Thank you Victor Jordan for setting this great series of speakers for the luncheons! The next YP Happy Hour will be September 17th at McNellie’s Downtown on the upstairs area at 5:30 pm. The 2015 SPE Fall Round-Up Golf Tournament will be at the Oaks Country Club on Monday, September 21st. This year we will have one tee time at 12:00 pm for 36 teams. After the round, don’t forget to stay for dinner at 5:30 pm and then hopefully win some of the awesome raffle prizes. The 20th Annual Sporting Clays Classic will be held Friday, October 23rd, 2015 at the Longshot Ranch, Skiatook. If you would like more information or would like to register to be one of the tournament sponsors, please contact Mark Carr (markc@kfoc.net).

I would like to thank all the dedicated volunteers that make each year special and organize the SPE events. Your dedication and commitment make the Mid-Continent SPE Section exceptional. Unfortunately, this will be my first and last Chairman’s Gavel but I would like to thank all of you for this opportunity. It has been an honor being part of Mid-Continent SPE Section. Thank you!

2015-2016 Chairman
