More than 8,100 E&P professionals gathered in Dallas for the 2018 SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE) for three days of learning, networking, and collaborating on the collective goals of the industry. A major highlight was the Opening General Session focused on "Translating Big Data into Business Results" with key panelists from Shell, Encana, Schlumberger, and Google Cloud.
The SPE Membership Salary Survey is an annual sampling of the self-reported compensation information from petroleum industry professionals worldwide. The Society of Petroleum Engineers conducted the first salary survey in 1967 and began publishing a historical summary of its Highlight Report annually in 1984. SPE offers a free copy of the latest Highlight Report, released each November, along with more information on the SPE Salary page. The Full Report offers data slices and charts by job category, region, job function, and years of experience; a data file with additional analysis is for sale in the SPE Bookstore.
The Distinguished Lecturer Program is one of SPE's most popular programs. Each season 30 to 35 experts from the oil and gas industry are selected to share their knowledge on the latest technologies and trends with SPE members. Established in 1961 with just three lecturers, the esteemed program now sends Distinguished Lecturers to SPE sections three times a year to give a total of more than 550 lectures all over the world. The purpose of the program is to provide SPE sections with outstanding speakers for section meetings, and to recognize the professional contributions of the selected Distinguished Lecturers. The program promotes SPE's mission to collect, disseminate, and exchange technical knowledge.

The field trip will provide an integrated approach to geologic outcrops, using Jal Az Zor examples, that will trigger reflections in the participants about the implications of heterogeneities, scale, and 3D distribution of rock properties to models, studies, activities, and insights pertinent to reservoir analysis. The field trip is specifically designed to relate the geology to a variety of subsurface disciplines involved in heavy oil development. Group discussion will be encouraged to share knowledge and trigger new perspectives. This field trip is intended for petroleum and reservoir engineers with any level of experience. Geoscientists, modellers, operations and training professionals would also benefit from this field seminar.
As chairperson of the 2018 SPE International Heavy Oil Conference and Exhibition, it is my honour and pleasure to invite you to participate in this specialised event that will be held on 10–12 December 2018 in Kuwait. The development and recovery of the worldwide vast reserves of heavy oil will involve a number of environmental and economic challenges, where cost optimisation and management will be key success factors. This conference will be dedicated to this crucial topic, under the theme "Cost Optimisation: The Key to Unlocking Heavy Oil Success." The state of Kuwait is propelling one of the most important investments in the world in heavy oil - to develop the reserves of the country - in alignment with the 2040 strategy of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation.
