Welcome to the web page of the Aberdeen Formation Evaluation Society (AFES).

I hope that it will show you why we are so proud of our society. Our purpose is simple; to promote for the public benefit, education and knowledge in the technical aspects of Formation Evaluation. AFES is a very fortunate society. It is run by a committee of outstanding individuals who have a most wonderful generosity of spirit. With the support of our sponsors, they have worked hard to deliver an excellent schedule of lectures and seminars for the second and third quarters of 2014. Our May lecture will be provided by Sergio de Gennaro of Shell U.K. and will focus upon aspects of Chalk Geomechanics.

On June 12th, we will have our annual AFES social event. This will be a hog roast with live music. All welcome. AFES will take a summer break during July and August. We return with a one-day Operations Petrophysics seminar on the 17th of September. We anticipate this to be very popular indeed. Here, John Owens – Maersk UK Lead Petrophysicist will give the keynote lecture. Our Annual General meeting will take place in October. Some progress has been already been made in this regard. Our Keynote address will be provided by Alan Johnson who is Principal Petrophysicist for Shell UK and Ireland. Please check our website for dates and times.

I hope our website provides you with the information you need. Please feel free to contact me or any other member of the AFES committee with your queries. We are happy to help you and we look forward to seeing you at our monthly meetings. We are especially keen to hear from anyone who would like to give one of our month lectures.

My very best wishes to you.
