As laptops become smaller and more ubiquitous, the old-fashioned way of taking notes by hand still has advantages. For technical innovation and skill progression for individuals and institutions, continual learning and exposure to new ideas is vital. Summarizing the results of a leadership survey by Bain and Company, this HBR article describes the traits of an inspiring leader. The oil and gas industry has a remarkable story to tell. SPE’s energy education public outreach program Enery4me highlights how energy works in our everyday lives to school students and teachers and promotes the career opportunities in the upstream petroleum sector.
Energy4me, SPE’s energy education outreach programme, will invite 50 U.A.E. Educators will receive hands-on training by qualified SPE facilitators, listen to a presentation from a prominent keynote speaker, and tour the ATCE exhibition. Additionally, educators will receive a variety of free instructional materials to take back to their classrooms. There is no cost for teachers to attend the workshop. SPE is educating the next generation of aspiring engineers, scientists and managers in the E&P industry.
The industry is becoming increasingly complex, leading to changes in how universities approach education for undergraduate study. New research links a rise in seismic activity in West Texas with increased oil and gas development over the past 20 years and, in particular, the past decade. Fed by big data loads from big operators, a university consortium and software firm are each working to make upstream data access as quick and easy as a Google search. A new university-led consortium aims to bring together industry and academia to help operators efficiently orchestrate the final days of deepwater developments. Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin (UT) have set an audacious goal to halve the time, cost, and number of rig personnel required for drilling every type of well, from unconventional shale to ultradeepwater.
The program gives SPE members a way to contribute to the E&P industry by sharing industry insights and practical career advice with young professionals, or by helping university students with academic and career direction. Young professionals also have the unique opportunity to serve as mentors to students. It's easy to communicate via email, Skype, LinkedIn or other social media.
Energy4me, SPE’s energy education outreach programme, will invite 50 Khazak science teachers (grades 9–12) to attend a free, one-day energy education workshop. Educators will receive hands-on training by qualified SPE facilitators, listen to presentations from prominent keynote and young professional speakers. In addition, Educators will receive a variety of free instructional materials to take back to their classrooms. There is no cost for teachers to attend the workshop. A keynote speaker will present the role of energy in our everyday lives, followed by a brief question and answer period.
Impact of Sanction Laws SPE must comply with all applicable sanction laws, including those of the US and European Union which prohibit personnel and nationals of certain countries (including the US) living abroad, from providing or assisting in the provision of certain services to individuals "ordinarily resident in" an embargoed or sanctioned country1.

These permitted services/benefits include: Geographic section membership in non-sanctioned countries OnePetro subscriptions or purchases Individual membership queries Individual membership benefits for publications, published technical papers and informational matter Attendance at SPE meetings, conferences, and workshops (cannot be an exhibitor) SPE books and periodicals (print and electronic) Information on SPE.org Information on energy4me.org
