Queensland Section

FESQ, the Formation Evaluation Society of Queensland is a regional branch of FESAus. It was reborn in February 2013 as the Coal Seam Gas resource boom continues to expand in Queensland.

It’s aims are to build upon FESAus and SPWLA with a focus on the Coal Seam Gas industry in Queensland. This brings unique challenges to formation evaluation, new techniques and innovative approaches to analyising reservoirs. FESQ also aims to include conventional and unconventional tight shale evaluation, as well as other minerals evaluation in Queensland and nearby regions.

In line with the founding principles of SPWLA and FESAus, FESQ is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the advancement of the science of Petrophysics and Formation Evaluation.

FESQ also aims to provide information services to scientists in the Queensland gas, petroleum and minerals industries, to serve as a regional specific 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 & Gas and Minerals industries.

Join our free mailing list to stay informed of our events and activities – or better yet, become a member and enjoy the benefits of FESQ/FESAus membership. Membership is free for Australia-based SPWLA members in good standing.
