                          From the Chair
 
 
 

Your SJV SPE section is ramping up for spring, so there’s plenty of good news and activities to put in your 
calendar. 
 
First up, Engineers Day!  This year is the 10th anniversary of this terrific program and is being sponsored by 
the Society of Petroleum Engineers, Kern County Superintendent of Schools School‐to‐Career and Cal 
State Bakersfield.  Engineers Day will be held Thursday, February 18, at the CSUB campus and offers 
nearly 500 local high school students the opportunity to find out just what engineers and scientists do.  
SJV SPE is requesting help from the industry to make this 10th anniversary a big success:  financial dona‐
tions to help defray the costs of hosting this event; exhibitors to discuss engineering opportunities and 
local companies; and speakers to make presentations.  Please read the flyer in this newsletter for more 
details on how to get involved. 
 
Mark your calendars for the annual SPE Golf Tournament on Friday, April 9!  All proceeds go towards our 
community outreach programs such as student scholarships, Engineering Week, industry lecture series, 
and K‐12 student and teacher education.  More info to come. 
 
As a reminder, all nominations for the Western North American Regional awards are due February 8th.  If 
you know of a deserving candidate, please forward your nomination with a letter of recommendation to 
Awards Director, Young Kirkwood. 
 
Lastly, I am pleased to announce that the SJV SPE section has donated $1,000 towards the SPE Student 
Membership Program.  In absence of a corporate sponsor for 2010, SPE has committed that no student 
will be turned away for lack of funds, and therefore has looked to the local sections and the membership 
for financial support.  Since there is not a student chapter within the geographic boundaries of the SJV 
SPE section, our contribution will support students around the world. 
 
Until next month,

         SJV SPE YP Gives Back to Bakersfield

A goal of SPE Young Professionals is to
find ways for our members to give back to
the community. On December 10, 2009,
the SJV SPE Young Professionals held a
Toys for Tots drive in conjunction with the
Bakersfield Marine Reserves. The event
took place at The Bistro at the Four Points
Sheraton. Together, we collected 87 toys
and over $250 in donations at the event!

Each year, thousands of children celebrate
the holiday season without new toys.
Since 1991, the United States Marine
Corps has been operating the Toys for Tots Program. This program serves the com-
munity by delivering a message of hope during the holiday season through the gift of
a new toy to less fortunate children across America. Since its inception, the Toys for
Tots Foundation has given more than 400 million toys to more than 188 million needy
children.

Thanks to the generosity of the SJV SPE members, many underprivileged children in
our community were given new toys this past Christmas. Thank you everyone who
donated and helped make this event possible!

Description
The art and science of waterflood management is an optimization process. There are opportunities for the field engineer
to improve well placement, well completion, and voidage/replacement management and the use of additives for stretch-
ing ultimate recovery. As such, critical factors and diagnostic procedures are discussed before initiation and during the
flood. The course includes an overview of critical characteristics of petroleum reservoirs and injection fluids affecting
the success of waterfloods. Then various sources of data and measurement techniques and their cost effectiveness are
scrutinized. Simple procedures for the analysis of waterflood performance data using specific diagnostic plots are exam-
ined with examples from actual waterfloods. Short cut prediction techniques are reviewed. Chemical methods for en-
hancement of waterfloods are discussed. Hands-on class exercises focusing on trouble shooting methods related to
causesoriginating from reservoir, wellbore and/or surface facilities are included.

Intended Audience
Reservoir engineers, geologists, production engineers and asset managers can benefit from this course.

  Value for Your Membership—the SPE Insurance Program
  As part of its membership benefits, the Society of Petroleum Engineers is pleased to sponsor the
  SPE Insurance Program. The Program is made up of insurance plans which have been specifi-
  cally
  designed with the needs of members in mind. One of the major advantages of these Plans
  is their portability, for insured members may keep their coverage regardless of whether they are
  employed, work as independents, or are between jobs.
  Plans in the Program include a variety of health, term life, disability, dental, long term care, and
  supplemental plans. A recent addition to the Program is personal lines coverage which includes
  auto, homeowner, and umbrella liability insurance.
  The Program is overseen by the Committee on Group Insurance which takes its responsibility to
  the members very seriously. Member W. Burt Nelson represents SPE on this Committee and
  currently
  serves as its Chairman.
  More information about the SPE Insurance Program, including the Plan descriptions, rates, and
  applications, may be found on the Program’s website at www.speinsurance.com, by e-mail at

                Community Outreach Programs
Engineering Day

National Engineers Week 2010 is February 14-20, 2010. The 10th Annual Kern County Engineers
Day will be Thursday of that week, February 18, 2010 – at Cal State University Bakersfield. Fund-
raising and Exhibitor Searches are nearing a close in an effort to make the 10th anniversary event
the best ever. If you or your company would like to participate we need to hear from you soon.

We will be hosting the largest event yet. Sponsor solicitations and details are included in this news-
letter. All interested SPE members are invited to participate in this important annual event. We
need people to man the SPE booth as well as help with logistics. Call John Kaiser for more info.

Community Energy Night

The Chair has held the first meeting the on October 15 to try to remake the event for next year. The
Committee met again on December 15 to begin planning the event – a date has not yet been se-
lected for the event.

Derricks to Desk

The Derricks to Desk program will be held July 20-22 2010. WSPA is asking SJV SPE for support in
this annual event. We will need SPE members to supervise small groups of teachers performing a
“lab” and develop a lesson plan which will be presented to the whole group after a working dinner.
Last summer the Santa Barbara boat trip “sold” out for the first time ever (it was free to SPE mem-
bers who provided their own transportation). Make your reservations early this year if you missed
last year. An event flyer will be published when available. Contact John Kaiser for more informa-
tion.

SJV SPE has also purchased 40 Energy4Me kits, one for each of the teachers participating in last
years event. There are a few left over that WSPA is holding for us. We will likely purchase addi-
tional kits to provide for each teacher at this years event.

Western Region PTTC

The Petroleum Technology Transfer Council, West Coast Region has been transferred to the Con-
servation Committee of California Oil & Gas Producers here in Bakersfield. The PTTC now holds
technical workshops roughly every other month both in Bakersfield and Long Beach. The cost for
the session is nominal and includes lunch and course materials. Contact CCCOGP for reservations.
Regional Director: Jerry Anderson Ph 661.635.0557 pttcwestcoast@cccogp.org

We will publish the event flyer whenever we have it in time for publication in the newsletter.

               National Engineers Week
                                February 18, 2010
                                8:30 am to 2:30 pm
                         Cal State University, Bakersfield
                             Student Union Building
The Society of Petroleum Engineers, Kern County Superintendent of Schools School-to-Career, and Cal
State University, Bakersfield are proud to announce the 10th Anniversary Engineers Day event offering local
high school students the opportunity to find out just what engineers and geologists do. A wide range of
representatives from the industry will relate first-hand to students what types of careers are available and
offer valuable resources. We held another very successful event in 2009 with some very positive feedback
from students and industry and we are going back to a one-day event in 2010 but serving all interested
students at a new and larger facility at CSUB.

The agenda will include an open Exhibition Area of projects, industry demonstrations, hands-on activities, and
industry representatives available to answer questions. In addition, presentations will be made describing the
growing importance of engineers in the workforce. Other topics include the required skills, proper ethics, and
recommendations on internships. A barbeque lunch will be provided by Halliburton. The students will also
have an opportunity to tour the CSUB campus and SPE is requesting help from the industry to make this 10th
Anniversary a big success. We need three things: Financial donations are needed to help defray the costs of
hosting this event; exhibitors are needed to show the types of jobs engineers fill and the type of work they do
and speakers are needed to make relevant presentations. Demonstrations and hands-on exhibits are the
most popular among the students. We are trying to convince students who exhibit prowess in math and
sciences to pursue a career in engineering. Industry predictions have shown that as much as 50% of the
engineering workforce will retire in the next 5-8 years.

Due to state budget cuts, the SPE is looking for help in sponsoring this event, and companies interested in
setting up display booths. In February 2009, almost 500 students and teachers attended the event from all
over Kern County. We are expecting similar attendance again this year.

If you would like to take part in this special event, please review the attached forms and/or contact:

                  SPE - SJV SECTION SCHOLARSHIP SELECTION CRITERIA


OBJECTIVE
To provide a merit award to offset educational expenses for engineering, environmental or geology/
earth science students, who after graduation are interested in entering the petroleum industry, and
becoming a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.

GUIDELINES

The recipient must be a full-time student (12 or more credit hours) at an accredited college or uni-
   versity in an engineering, environmental sciences or earth sciences field of study.
Applicants must be current residents of California, or a child of a current Society of Petroleum Engi-
   neers - San Joaquin Valley Section member. However, an applicant from another state who has
   petroleum-related work experience in the state of California through full, part-time, or summer
   employment is also eligible.
When selecting recipients strong consideration is given to the following:

          Demonstrated commitment to entering the petroleum industry through declared industry-
             related majors or work experience
          Essay responses
          GPA
          Extracurricular activities

Financial need is not being considered.

Scholarships will be considered for applicants from undergraduate class levels of college study (and
   graduating high school seniors).

Due to the limited number of scholarships available, they will not be automatically renewed. Former
  SJV SPE scholarship recipients are free to reapply each year but will not be given preferential
  status.

The most outstanding high school senior declaring petroleum engineering major will be aided in sub-
   mitting an additional application to compete for the SPE National Headquarters “Gus Archie Me-
   morial Scholarship”. This program funds an entering college freshman student through 4 years of
   petroleum engineering undergraduate studies at $5000 per year.
