Chairman's Corner



Trey Hughey
East Texas Section Chairperson

Hello SPE members.  Spring has sprung and that means we are gearing up for our annual golf tournament.  It will be held on the first Friday of May, as always, which is May 4th this year.  Please mark your calendars!  We welcome any sponsorship support you are able to contribute, as all proceeds go to our scholarship fund.  Please reach out to Chris Pierce at if you would like to help as a sponsor.  Be on the lookout for more info coming soon- we are looking forward to another great tournament this year! 

This month’s presentation is called “Ultra-Fine Particles (UFP) to Enhance Microfracture Permeability” Halliburton’s Janette Cortez-Montalvo and Ubong Inyang are going to enlighten us on the application of ultrafine particulates in hydraulic fracturing of unconventional reservoirs as a stimulation additive.

I would also like to acknowledge Andres Tovar for his service to our Section. Andres had been serving as our Treasurer, for the last year, which he did a remarkable job for our Board. Andres has moved overseas with Exxon and he will certainly be missed within our Section. Carter Grooms has graciously volunteered his time to take over this very vital role within our Board. Thank you Carter for your devotion to SPE East Texas.

See you all on Tuesday at the Potpourri House!
