Dear Mr Barkhouse,
Thank you very much for the link to the Geo-
mentoring page. I must say that it is a wonderful
innovation from SEG. The blog provides a great
opportunity for us in Africa to learn of the
opportunities in the science of Geophysics. 

This knowledge is indispensable in galvanizing our
interest in this great discipline.
Yes, you can publish my comments.
Hope to also hear from you on my thesis support
Best wishes!!

Dear Nkeze,

First, please try

and please comment.

Second, may I have your permission to post our
e-mail communications to the
'blog' so that other students may see our
geo-mentoring activity?

Please advise.

Thank you.

 Dear sir,
 Thank you very much for your mail. I'm sorry to
 let you know that my topic was changed last two weeks
 because the Cameroon Hydrocarbon Corporation said
 it could only accept one student from My University
 and we were two of us seeking for assistance.I am
 pleased to inform you that my fellow class mate is working
 there at the moment. I am now working on
 I'm afraid you may have misunderstood me a
 The amount was meant to cover my entire thesis i.e
 my lodging in Yaounde, my transportation from Buea to
 yaounde and back and also other logistical
 I deeply appreciate your willingness to help me
 and may God reward you abundantly.
 Can I still send to you my present proposal on

Dear Nkeze,
Thank you for your e-mail of April 25th. Your
request for $500 US is most
unusual for students seeking data for research

 I would be happy in assisting you prepare a
 letter to the Cameroon national
 hydrocarbon corporation requesting them to make
 available the log data for  your research.

 Can you please send an electronic copy of your
 research proposal? Can you identify, by name, the logs you are  looking for?

Best regards,

Dear Mr Barkhouse,

I am so happy to write to you. I read with
alot of interest and admiration recently, about your
efforts and contribution in the science of
geophysics from my recent copy of TLE magasin. I am a
student member of SEG (171180) from Cameroon in
Africa. I am currently pursuing a Masters degree in Applied Geology at the University of Buea.

I am very encouraged by your achievements and
would like to pursue a career in geophysics. I have
chosen a topic for my MSc research -characterisation of
reservoir capacity from wireline logs.

It is the first research of its kind in my
university and I am so excited! I would like to solicit
your help financially about 500 US Dollars to
obtain logs for interpretation from the
Cameroon national hydrocarbon corporation.  I look forward to hearing from you.

My love to your family.

Nkeze Julius
University of Buea
