References (refs) on PetroWiki are important to validate writing and inform the reader. Any editor can potentially remove unsupported material, and unsubstantiated articles may end up getting deleted; so when something is added to an article, it's highly advisable to also cite a reference to say where the information came from. It can also be a good idea to update or improve existing references. Referencing may look daunting, but it's easy enough to do. Here's a guide to getting started.
Technology has revolutionized the ways by which we access information and learn about topics that interest us. The emergence of mobile devices, information-sharing platforms, and apps have streamlined the conventional methods of learning and knowledge transfer. One of the most notable changes is the replacement of textbooks and encyclopedias with web-based knowledge-sharing portals such as SPE's PetroWiki--a digital portal for oil- and gas-related technical information. PetroWiki.org is a living, growing knowledge resource for oil and gas professionals, featuring more than 2,000 pages of content. Information about a topic can be easily gathered by entering the keyword in the search box.
As global professional technical groups, SPE technical section members benefit from a number of programs available to participate in. Provided are a few examples of these activities. Work with geographic section officers in proposing discussion topics and inviting subject matter experts to speak at a section meeting. Serve as mentors to share industry insights and career advice with young professionals or students. Serve as resource for SPE staff (identify speakers, program committee members).
