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.
To 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. Advance the oil and gas community's ability to meet the world's energy demands in a safe, environmentally responsible, and sustainable manner.

Two of Europe’s biggest oil companies urged Texas regulators to end the routine flaring of natural gas, joining with large investors who want greater oversight of the harmful environmental practice. In a session to review proposed rule changes on setbacks, four of the five Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission’s members voiced support for extended setbacks. The state of New Mexico finalized changes to its produced-water regulations on the oil and gas industry after months of adjustments and debate between state regulators, environmentalists, and oil and gas industry leaders. On 13 August 2020, EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler announced two final rules related to the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for the oil and natural gas industry. Thousands of oil and gas operations, government facilities, and other sites won permission to stop monitoring for hazardous emissions or otherwise bypass rules intended to protect health and the environment because of the coronavirus outbreak, The Associated Press has found. The Trump administration rolled back regulations aimed at reducing emissions of the potent greenhouse gas methane from oil and gas operations, its latest move to unwind environmental rules ahead of November’s presidential election. The Alberta government has announced a new liability management framework aimed at expediting the cleanup of orphan and inactive well sites, signaling a more active approach to reclamation and management of those sites. The Trump administration is seeking to ease more rules for oil and gas drilling that were adopted under the Obama administration, with the latest changes projected to save energy companies more than $130 million over the next decade.

Session 2: Private Equity and E&P: How can upstream compete? Distressed opportunities, portfolio rationalisation by the majors and a reset of shale’s cost base led to a wave of PE investment in the last downturn. Low operating costs combined with low political risk offered a ‘safe haven’ for Private Equity funding with the expectation of good returns over their typical investment cycle. Most had not exited prior to 2020 and are now faced with a different reality. This session will look at how Private Equity’s perceptions have changed in the past 12 months and how their business models are evolving to meet future challenges.
Leading Upstream Finance and Investments Conferences Goes Virtual! The oil and gas industry has experienced highs and lows during the past decade, but the situation it faces in 2020 is unprecedented. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a significant slump in demand and the prospect of long-term price volatility. It raises the possibility of accelerated peak oil as governments develop a greener focus in economic recovery and investors continue to factor environmental factors ever more strongly in investment decisions. However, the current crisis is also an opportunity to challenge existing operating models and accelerate the industry’s transformation towards a lower carbon future.
The threat of cyberattacks on physical infrastructure, such as the electric grid and oil and gas pipelines, is a real concern in our contemporary world. Recent research states that cyberattacks will cost approximately $6 trillion annually by 2021. Offshore workers kidnapped from an FPSO offshore Nigeria in an armed pirate attack in July have been released, the owner of the floating production unit said. Cybersecurity technology and service providers are shifting priorities to support current needs: business continuity, remote work, and planning for transition to the next normal. The oil and gas industry is increasingly characterized by complex connectivity, but our digital dependency brings a new realm of cyber risks. The coronavirus pandemic has created a huge shift in how work is done. More people are working from home than ever, and this shift has opened new risks to cybersecurity.
