I have traveled many places in the course of my oilfield career. One of my more interesting stops was the result of an invitation by ONGC to conduct a formation damage prevention course at their Drilling Academy in Dehradun, near the foothills of the Himalayas. Not being much of an adventurer, if I am honest, it was a tremendous thrill for me to be anywhere near the Himalayas. And, of course, I was honored to receive this invitation to teach at this prestigious learning center. Here is a photo I cherish of the course delegates.
