We are sad to let you know of the passing of Mark Hutchinson in March of this year.
Mark was involved in the DEA(e) for over 2 decades – from when the organisation first started. He was an exceptional individual who showed great devotion and commitment to the network. He will be greatly missed by everyone and will be remembered for his hard work, commitment to industry and significant achievements driving forward MWD technology, and more recently on modelling and real time data. Mark first presented in March 1999 on “drilling performance measurements” and he last presented in September 2018 on “applying aerospace simulation techniques to well planning & execution”. Mark was well read and could converse on almost any topic – he will be missed for his personality and friendship shared with many.
Our sincere sympathies and condolences to Mark’s family and friends.
