Today I recieved my copy of the January issue of Shreveport Geological Society Newsletter. This issue contains notice of subject symposium to be held on March 24, 2011.
Per this notice: "This one day program will focus on the Lower Smackoverof South Arkansas and North Louisiana" "Registration will be limitted." I do not know if this will be open to
to memers of SGS members only or not. Details will be in February Bulletin. I plan to attend.
I posted all information from Newsletter, but I will post more as I get new info.
The symposium will be technical in nature. The three guys speaking are a geochemist, a carbonate petrologist, and a carbonate sedimentologist. Sound exciting?? Actually it should be interesting. My goal in putting it together is to help our understanding of how the Lower Smackover of our area fits into its regional context...particularly with areas in Alabama where the equivalent interval produces. No discussion of leasing, active companies, or specific well results is planned. Of course some of that kind of information may slip in but that's not the intent. Watch the SGS bulletin for more details. Bill
