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.
Multiple companies have been contacting SPE members and SPE event attendees claiming to sell or rent event attendee lists. SPE does not rent, share, or sell email addresses to third parties.

New report offers guidelines for pressure pumpers of the future. The industry has very limited experience in shuttering production on a large scale in unconventional reservoirs. Many questions remain on how stimulated, nanodarcy shale reservoirs may respond. George King discusses the paradigm shifts needed in the industry. As tight-oil producers move to curtail production, hard-to-answer questions are being raised about how shuttered wells will come back.
The $20.7-billion agreement is the single-largest energy infrastructure investment in the region. Hear first-hand from the first-ever Cheif Technology Officer at the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, Alan Nelson, about the integrated operator's digital transformation strategy. The companies will focus on research and development to reduce CO2 emissions and promote the circular economy. ADNOC’s drilling subsidiary has increased its rig fleet to 95 and plans to add “dozens” more by 2025. The upgrade project will increase the maturing field’s oil production to 485,000 B/D.
SPE leaders share their insights on how COVID-19 and the low oil price environment are affecting the oil and gas workforce, the SPE, and future industry interaction, including academia. The reality is that those working in the oil and gas industry are facing the toughest challenges seen in a generation. Aside from higher prices, one of the only things that will make it easier is good leadership. A host of women and men gathered at the inaugural SPE-GCS Women in Energy Congress to discuss the gender-gap challenges facing oil and gas today. How does greater diversity and inclusion help the industry progress, and what can companies do to encourage more diverse and inclusive environments?
