FESAus undertake various projects inline with its mission.
The most significant project in 2010 was hosting the SPWLA 2010 51st International Symposium
Currently active projects are:
Due to our many varied commitments, these projects have taken a long-term character, but remain of great interest and actuality.
If you have a specific interest in any topic related to Standards or Best Practices, we may be interested in working with you on this. Contact us!

PPPEDIA was a project initially started by the Data Standards and Best Practices Group in 2006. It aimed to address some of the Frequently Asked Questions which Formation Evaluation professionals have or get.
The project started as a community-built online reference which we had called PPPEDIA, for PetroPhysics encycloPEDIA. Subsequently the project was migrated to Wikipedia as a Wikiproject on Formation Evaluation.
For reference, here are some of the questions which we felt should be addressed:

FESAus, the Formation Evaluation Society of Australia, is the Australian chapter of the Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA). It was born in July 2007 of the integration of the Formation Evaluation societies of different states of Australia.
Its aims are to provide a technical monthly forum for geoscientists focused on all aspects of formation evaluation, from new tools available to new techniques and approaches to analysing reservoirs, and to encourage formation evaluation professionals to network.
In line with the founding principles of the SPWLA, FESAus is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of the science of Petrophysics and Formation Evaluation, including well logging, coring, and other formation evaluation techniques and to the application of these techniques to the exploitation of gas, oil and other minerals, particularly in Australia.
FESAus also aims to provide information services to scientists in the Australian petroleum and mineral industries, to serve as a voice of shared interests in the profession, to play a major role in education in Petrophysics, and to increase awareness of the contribution of Petrophysics to the Oil and Gas industry.
Currently membership (2016) is over 150 geoscientists from all over Australia and beyond. Join our free mailing list to stay informed of our events and activities – or better yet: become a member and enjoy the benefits of FESAus membership. Membership is free for Australia-based SPWLA members in good standing.

We are proud that FESAus hosted the 51th SPWLA Annual Symposium in 2010 in Perth, Western Australia. Other flagship activities include:
- A yearly FESAus “New Technology Day”, in September, with alternating focus on software and hardware;
- A yearly FESAus “Student Day”, in October, with the award of FESAus’s Hugh Crocker Scholarship to support and encourage a particularly meritous student of Formation Evaluation in Australia;
- Regular “Master Classes” which we also aim to take to every capital city of the Australian Federation active in the oil and gas industry;
and more… Read about all this on this website.Post Views: 4,662
We would like to invite you to support The Formation Evaluation Society of Australia (FESAus). The support you provide is very valuable and enables us to continue providing technical presentations and courses to disseminate up to date information and technical know-how amongst the oil and gas community throughout Australia.
We provide monthly technical presentation events, annual technology and workshop forums (known as our master class events) that attract a variety of professionals from all parts of the industry. We also provide training courses and encourage graduates through the active participation of the society in the academic community. To this end we have the Hugh Crocker Scholarship, an annual grant of up to five thousand Australian dollars, awarded to the most promising student applicant in order to assist in the development of their technical research.
The majority of the events are videoed and documented to become a valuable resource for the wider Australian and global community on our website as FESAus webcasts. The website in itself has become a valuable resource within the Petroleum industry. From our count, the website has attracted several thousand referrals from around 150 cities representing every major petroleum province in the world.
