Don’t Miss the SEG 2017 in Houston Next Week!

SEG Houston Geophysics Conference Logging Borehole

Come visit Mount Sopris Instruments and Advanced Logic Technologies (ALT) at next week’s Society of Exploration Geophysicists Annual Meeting and Exposition in Houston, Texas. Jim LoCoco and Lia Martinez will be representing Mount Sopris Instruments, while Rien Corstanje will be representing ALT. Both will be sharing Booth #1311.

The SEG International Exposition and 87th Annual Meeting in Houston will provide vast amounts of cutting-edge technical insight, high-level networking, and new business- development opportunities across multiple disciplines of the geosciences sector, including global oil, gas, mineral exploration, near surface, archaeology, and more.
Thousands of highly qualified geoscience professionals from more than 70 countries are expected to connect 24 –29 September 2017 at Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center for this annual must-attend information exchange and networking event. Geoscientists look forward to this annual gathering, as it enhances their careers with the latest technical knowledge and industry innovation, while they meet face-to-face with a diverse group of companies and colleagues.

Please see the Conference Announcement for more information!

 

Both companies will be demonstrating the new generation of Optical Borehole Imager, QL40-OBI-2G, capable of producing extraordinarily clear, 360° digital views of the borehole wall.

Together, Mount Sopris Instruments and ALT provide the industry’s most comprehensive range of geophysical borehole logging systems for groundwater, mining, research, geotechnical and other applications – featuring a best-in-class series of stackable probes, rugged logging winches, versatile data loggers, and the industry standard WellCAD software.

This will be an especially important SEG in light of the recent hurricane and flooding throughout Houston. In fact, this will be the first convention in the George R Brown convention center since the event. From SEG:

“After much communication with those affected by Hurricane Harvey plus research, discussion, and intense deliberation about conditions in Houston, the Society of Exploration Geophysicists’ Board of Directors has decided to hold the SEG International Exposition and 87th Annual Meeting as scheduled, 24-29 September 2017.

Houston is dear to our hearts, and SEG wants to do everything it can to support the city while advancing the interests and needs of our members, attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, and presenters. Many might have concerns about traveling to Houston this month, but officials with the George R. Brown Convention Center and the City of Houston have assured SEG that the city is ready to accommodate Annual Meeting participants. SEG staff members and volunteer leaders have inspected the Conference Center, supporting hotels, and venues, and agree that Houston is open for business!

The SEG Annual Meeting will be the first large conference to take place in Houston following Hurricane Harvey and its devastating floods. Now that the decision is to hold the Houston meeting, the Society is developing plans to bring geophysicists and their expertise to local, state, and federal efforts to repair compromised infrastructure, including roads, bridges, overpasses, and dams. More details will follow. What a great opportunity the Annual Meeting provides to focus many of the brightest minds in the geosciences on the restoration of Houston!

Thank you for your patience during this difficult decision-making process.

We look forward to seeing all of you in Houston!
SEG Board of Directors”

We hope to see you there in Booth 1311!
