Sponsoring AFES

Aberdeen Formation Evaluation Society

As a sponsor of the Aberdeen Formation Evaluation Society (registered Scottish Charity SC039526) your company is both supporting and benefiting from an organisation that since the early 1980s has been active in promoting the scientific and technical aspects of formation evaluation through various educational formats; all of which have been well received and supported over the years.
AFES, the local Scottish chapter of SPWLA (Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts) organise free monthly meetings and occasional pay-for-entry seminars and since 2004 have been assisting with the organization of the annual DEVEX sub-surface conference jointly supported by SPE, PESGB and AFES.

At the heart of AFES activities is the support of the three main Scottish universities that teach petrophysics and formation evaluation, namely Heriot-Watt, Robert Gordon and Aberdeen universities. Over the past years, AFES has donated thousands of pounds to these establishments for equipment purchases and in support of research and students, all of which benefit our discipline and industry as a whole.
Many of you are sustaining sponsors and for your continued support we thank you and ask you again to take the opportunity to be associated with this dedicated and successful organisation. If you are looking to sponsor AFES for the first time and would like some more information you can contact me using the e-mail link below where I would be happy to tell you about all the things we are up to and how being a sponsor of AFES can benefit your company.
Thank you for your support.

Altus Intervention

Altus Intervention have worked directly with oil companies for 40 years evolving our delivery models, service scopes and technologies, often in the most challenging of environments. During this time they have seen well intervention strategies become a core discipline for operators to improve returns and of course address the many unforeseen issues that can arise in well performance.
As a mature and challenging basin, the North Sea has in many respects been a trail blazer in setting standards for new techniques and technologies as operators have established sustained and managed intervention campaigns. With their heritage proudly developed in this basin they have since expanded internationally and today solve intervention challenges across the world – from Deepwater Gulf of Mexico and the North American shale plays to deviated well in the Middle East and offshore intervention in Malaysia.
They currently employ 1100 people globally with operations across 4 regions: UK & West Africa, Norway & Denmark, Americas and Middle East & Asia Pacific.
