CWLS is now a local chapter of the SPWLA
On Tuesday April 18th, 2017 at Calgary, Alberta the Canadian Well Logging Society (CWLS) signed the local chapter agreement with the Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA).
The CWLS (Canadian Well Logging Society) is the oldest organization devoted to log analysis, incorporated in Calgary, Canada in 1957. In that time the society has endeavoured to produce a technical journal with a Canadian slant. The CWLS is thus an appropriate place for those interested in exploring mineral resources in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin, the Canadian Arctic, offshore eastern Canada and southern Ontario.
The society has great support from the petroleum industry with over 30 Corporate sponsors. The CWLS has in turn provided a great deal of support to the petroleum industry. One of our proudest achievements has been a Catalogue of Water Resistivities in sedimentary formations in Canada.
The CWLS holds a Technical Luncheon on the third Wednesday of every month (except in the Summer and February) for the benefit of those interested in log analysis and petrophysics. Notices of the topic of each luncheon are sent to members and posted on this web site.
Currently the CWLS has over 600 members including over 100 Student members from around the world. Most of the activities of the CWLS are performed by Volunteers. The society would like to thank all volunteers for their time and effort in making the CWLS a success.
