Thank you to everyone reading this first fully digital version of the RECORDER! I am writing this update the Monday following the CSEG Doodlespiel, and once again would like to thank the Doodlespiel Committee, and specifically their Chairman, Dan Perez for putting on a stellar event.

Petrel Robertson Consulting Ltd. on India Trade Mission

The Alberta Government, in conjunction with Global Affairs Canada and Export Development Canada, led a trade mission to New Delhi, India from December 4 to 10, 2016. Petrel Robertson was one of eighteen companies selected to represent the oil and gas industry from Alberta. The trade mission provided opportunities for one-on-one meetings with potential joint venture partners, national oil companies, agents, and producers.

Welcome to the 65th CSEG Doodlebug!

September 8-10th, 2017 – Banff Springs Golf Course / Moose Hotel & Suites/Ptarmigan Inn Banff, Alberta

The CSEG Doodlebug Golf tournament is one of the premier social events of the Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists. Each year members of the society gather to determine who will reign as Mr. Doodlebug, the Champion Golfer of the CSEG.

The Doodlebug Golf Tournament started in 1953 and has been handed down to succeeding generations and has continued in many changing formats. This year we are excited to announce that the event will return to Banff for the first time since 2000. Members of the CSEG are slotted into flights of eight, where players go head to head in match play, on day one. The overall winner of each flight will be determined in stroke play format during day two.

This year’s event will be condensed into an action-packed weekend. The Doodlebug will start with a Friday Night Icebreaker, golf rounds will be played Saturday and Sunday morning. There will be a Saturday Night dinner and dance, and a golf awards ceremony on Sunday afternoon in the clubhouse. Spouses and significant others are welcome and encouraged to attend, with a full program of guest entertainment.

As with all CSEG social events, all members are invited to join the Doodlebugs in Banff.
