The PetroWiki Steering Committee has the responsibility of guiding the SPE community to further develop and enhance the content in PetroWiki. Its goal is to increase user participation, identify and close topic gaps on the wiki, and propose ways to improve the user experience. The committee may also act as the arbitrator to settle content disputes and discrepancies on PetroWiki if necessary. This committee comprises 6-8 members who each serve 3-year terms. Ideally, the committee should have representation from industry and academia, a variety of SPE regions, and all technical disciplines.

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.
