Visit Ingrain at the 2013 Soceity of Core Analysts Annual Symposium. Ingrain will be sponsoring a day-long Digital Rock Physics Workshop taking place on Monday, September 16.

Ingrain will also be presenting an oral presentation and a poster:"Computed two-phase relative permeability using digital rock physics in a shale formation" and "Shale reservoir evaluation improved by digital rock physics", respectively.

Visit Ingrain in booth #24!

Dr. Joel Walls is a geophysicist and entrepreneur with extensive experience in the research, development, launch, and sale of advanced technology products and services for oil and gas exploration and production. While completing his doctoral work for Dr. Amos Nur in the Stanford Rock Physics Project in 1982, he co-founded Petrophysical Services Inc., which was acquired by Litton Core Laboratories in 1984. He served as Director of the Dallas Advanced Technology Center for Core Lab until 1990 when he formed the software company PetroSoft Inc., in San Jose, CA. PetroSoft merged with two other software companies to form Rock Solid Images (RSI) in 1998. He served in several executive positions, including VP of Business Development and VP of Technology. RSI was acquired by Offshore Hydrocarbon Mapping (OHM) in 2007.He then served as VP, Chief Petrophysicist, and Shale Venture Leader for Object Reservoir from 2008 to 2010.Dr. Walls joined Ingrain in 2010 as Director, Technical Resources for Unconventional Reservoirs with responsibility for developing and commercializing services focused on shale and other unconventional reservoirs.

Joel was a co-founder and the first president of the Society of Core Analysts, and is also a member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), and Society of Petrophysicists & Well Log Analysts (SPWLA). He is the author of many publications in various geophysical and petrophysical journals, and holds a U.S. patent in the field of seismic reservoir characterization.

Dr. Walls holds an M.S. and Ph.D. in geophysics from Stanford University, and a B.S. in physics from Texas A&M University, Commerce.

The Society of Core Analysts (SCA) 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:



  1. To promote the aims, purposes, and membership of the SPWLA which is a non-profit scientific organization.

  2. 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
