Happy to meet; sorry to part; happy to meet again! After a very tough decision, I’ve decided that it’s time to pass on the Grapevine to another worthy industry colleague. Kristy Manchul, Sigma Explorations, will be taking over the Grapevine starting in February. Rumour has it that she’s got an English degree. You know what that means, she’ll have a trusty red pen in her hand as she writes the articles, so be sure to have your content grammatically correct!

I’ve had wonderful time writing the Grapevine and have had the honour to work with a great bunch on the RECORDER Committee, as well as you, our readers. Thank you so much for supporting the RECORDER and be nice to Kristy!

Many of you have been asking, “Have I missed the IHS Customer Appreciation Event”? Well, the answer is no! IHS had to postpone the event due to the IHS Canadian Energy Conference which was being held two weeks earlier.

The annual customer event is undergoing an “Extreme Makeover” as we find new and exciting ways to show you, our customer, how much we appreciate you. Watch for details in the IHS monthly newsletter, “The Source” for details of the who, when, where of the event. It’s coming, and it will be worth the wait!

If you were not a subscriber to the IHS newsletter, The Source, and you would like to be, please contact Giovanna Schipani at giovanna.schipani@ihs.com

Details will also be on the IHS website at: www.ihs.com/energy.

Thanks, and we’ll see you soon!
