A main mission of the Formation Evaluation Society of Australia is to promote the diffusion of knowledge on Formation Evaluation in many different ways.
Here are some of our related activities:
- Every year, FESAus awards the Hugh Crocker Scholarship to a full time post graduate student in Australia, who is undertaking a project: with relevance to Formation Evaluation, and that has scholastic merit.
- FESAus has an Education Ambassador who is a senior Formation Evaluation professional keen to communicate to young adults and students his enthusiasm for the discipline and the industry, and to share some of his insights and stories.
- Since 2009, the Formation Evaluation Society of Australia promotes a “Distinguished Lectures” series, to bring landmark lectures to audiences across Australia.

Students undertaking projets in the following areas of study are encouraged to apply:
- Reservoir Characterisation
- Seismic-based Geophysics
- Unconventional Resources
- … or anything related to Formation Evaluation.
Applications are judged on technical merit, quality of submission and the potential of the candidate’s overall contribution to and impact on the formation evaluation community.
The recipient receives a substantial monetary award (currently AUD 5,000), and the opportunity to present the project at the FESAus monthly technical meeting.

The Formation Evaluation Society of Australia has initiated a number of industry awards to recognize the exceptional work or contribution of some of our peers to the field of Formation Evaluation or to FESAus itself. Inaugural awards were given out during the Awards Ceremony at the 2010 SPWLA Annual Conference, held in Perth.
The “Medal of Honor for Career Service” is awarded to an individual in recognition of their extraordinary and long term service to the FESAus Society and to the promotion of Formation Evaluation.
The “Distinguished Service Award” is awarded to an individual in recognition of their outstanding service to the FESAus Society.
FESAus Medal of Honour for Career Service was awarded to Hugh Crocker in 2010, in recognition of his untiring, enthusiastic support and promostion of Formation Evaluation over the years. This award is also a Honorary Life-time Membership to FESAus.
FESAus Distinguished Service Award was awarded to Martin Storey in 2010, in recognition of his outstanding work in FESAus with regards to the construction and update of the FESAus website, his involvement with the creation and registration of FESAus as a national entity, the SPWLA wiki Glossary project, and generally for his willingness and readiness to help and provide support where ever possible, to whom so ever requires it in matters concerning FESAus.Post Views: 4,082
