This year at ATCE a host of activities will be on offer for young members, all designed to help you develop new skills, make new contacts in the industry, and find out more about how you can prepare yourself for a career in the oil and gas industry and how SPE can help you along the way. Current and future SPE Section and Student Chapter leaders are invited to engage and share. Every attendee leaves energised with a full list of ideas and a support network of fellow leaders. Those sections and student chapters actively participating in this workshop have consistently been recognised with awards as the best in SPE. Make friends from around the world in the lead up to ATCE.
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.
Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop. In line with the SPE Mission, collect, disseminate, and exchange technical knowledge concerning the exploration, development and production of oil and gas resources, and related technologies for the public benefit; and to provide opportunities for professionals to enhance their technical and professional competence. And, based on the continuous success we witnessed since we started this series of workshops, SPE is proud to announce its Drilling and Completion Optimisation Workshop in Egypt. Through the years, we found that the subject of this workshop attracts the attention of several professionals in the oil and gas industry. The massive investment required to drill a well in deepwater urges decision-makers to spend more time investigating cost optimisation.
Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop. The workshop aimed to establish how the well construction industry is embracing automation, based on proven values of process safety, consistency to deliver results, and the financial impact. We discussed what the enablers are, and what the challenges to a quicker adoption are. What is the envisioned level of automation for each stage of the well construction process, how big data and artificial intelligence will enable it, and where and how rig systems and downhole technologies are coming together to unlock greater value. Automation’s past, present, and future were included with practical case studies combined with aspirational examples of what the future can hold, and how we plan and prepare to get there.
Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop. The prolonged depressed oil and gas price scenario has had a significant impact in delaying investments for new developments. Focus has shifted to lower capital intensive activities and towards maximising value creation from existing and mature fields. At the same time, the industry has also been extending production from late life fields while reducing risk and liabilities through innovative production and decommissioning strategies. Learnings from present activities can be adopted to lower risk exposure of future developments.
Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop. It has been said that companies with better data capabilities are twice as likely to be on top of financial performance, and five times more likely to make faster decisions than their competitors do (source: Bain and Company). The major digital transformation taking place in our industry across the value chain is aimed to enhance outcomes to meet the energy demands of the world. The 2018 edition of the SPE Data Management Workshop was held under the theme “Fuelling the New Industrial Revolution”. This year’s theme was “Industry 4.0 in the Oil and Gas Value Chain”, where we aimed to cover four major areas in two full days: The goal of this workshop was to understand the challenges and emerging trends of Industry 4.0, and how it will affect the people and organisation.
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.
The SPE Workshop: Thriving in the Energy Transition Through Emissions Management, was held virtually over three days (15-17th September) and attracted 60 attendees from 39 organisations and 11 countries. What a great start to the series of workshops in development around the world – from Houston, to the Hague, to Calgary, to the Gulf of Mexico, to Berlin and more to come – each addressing the decarbonisation and energy mix topics from different angles. I hope this pandemic will help organisations move away from a blame culture, where failure is unforgivable, to a culture of psychological safety that is so desperately needed to shift the paradigm in health, safety and environment (HSE). Emissions management is a key topic in the oil and gas field, with operations leaders, executive management, regulators and stakeholders. It has also made it onto the agenda of SPE's Board of Directors.
History of SPE In 1957, the organization was officially founded as SPE, a constituent society of AIME. SPE became a separately incorporated organization in 1985. Our history begins within the American Institute of Mining Engineers (AIME). AIME was founded in 1871 in Pennsylvania, USA, to advance the production of metals, minerals, and energy resources through the application of engineering. In 1913, a standing committee on oil and gas was created within AIME and proved to be the genesis of SPE.
I am writing this letter of recommendation for Suzie Queue, who has served as the Chair of the Timbuctu Section's Young Professionals (YP) Committee, a three-year commitment equivalent to being Chair of a full SPE Section, with a 15-member board and a budget of $12,000. Her service to SPE has been outstanding, so much so, that our Section honored her as our 2016 Regional Young Engineer of the Year at our annual awards banquet. Suzie grew up in Ethiopia, where she lived without access to water or electricity. She would connect a 12V car battery to an old black and white TV set to watch with her family, and that sparked her interest in engineering. She received a full scholarship to Podunk University, where she earned a BS degree in electronic engineering.
