The name of this organization is the Society of Core Analysts (SCA) and was founded in 1986. This organization is a Chapter-at-Large of The Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA) and is established with two objectives:
- To promote the aims, purposes, and membership of the SPWLA which is a non-profit scientific organization.
- To serve the interests of all persons who use or obtain reservoir evaluation information from rock and core samples.
As a guide for fulfilment of the first objective, this Chapter stands responsible to, and subject to, the rules and regulations of the SPWLA.
As a means toward the second objective this Chapter will sponsor technical speakers, projects, and presentation of papers dealing with formation evaluation. This Chapter will hold membership open to all core analysts, log analysts, geologists, geophysicists engineers, service company personnel and all others interested in the study of rocks and their interstitial fluids. This Chapter will also actively encourage membership and participation in the activities of the SPWLA.
Founders of the Society of Core Analysts: Eve Sprunt and Joel Walls
