The Technical Programme Committee of APOGCE 2021 invites you to submit a paper proposal and contribute to this flagship event. A proper review of your paper proposal requires that it contain adequate information on which to make a judgment. Download our instructions guide to assist you with preparing your paper proposal. The paper proposal should have the necessary clearance before it is submitted to APOGCE 2021. Prospective authors should advise of any clearance problems when the paper proposal is submitted.
Student Chapter Awards Student chapter awards recognize those that succeed in fulfilling SPE’s mission by serving local members. The awards honor exemplary efforts in industry engagement, operations and planning, community and social outreach, and more. Presidential Award for Outstanding Student Chapter The Presidential Award for Outstanding Student Chapter is the highest honor a student chapter can receive. It recognizes the top 5 percent of student chapters that are exemplary in the scoring categories. The awards are presented during the Student Awards Luncheon at the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition.
Section awards recognize those that succeed in fulfilling SPE’s mission by serving local members.

Estimates derived under these definitions rely on the integrity, skill, and judgement of the evaluator and are affected by the geological complexity, stage of exploration or development, degree of depletion of the reservoirs, and amount of available data. Use of the definitions should sharpen the distinction between various classifications and provide more consistent resources reporting. The resource classification system is summarized in Figure 1 and the relevant definitions are given below. Elsewhere, resources have been defined as including all quantities of petroleum which are estimated to be initially-in-place; however, some users consider only the estimated recoverable portion to constitute a resource. In these definitions, the quantities estimated to be initially-in-place are defined as Total Petroleum-initially-in-place, Discovered Petroleum-initially-in-place and Undiscovered Petroleum-initiallyin- place, and the recoverable portions are defined separately as Reserves, Contingent Resources and Prospective Resources.
Petroleum1 is the world's major source of energy and is a key factor in the continued development of world economies. It is essential for future planning that governments and industry have a clear assessment of the quantities of petroleum available for production and quantities which are anticipated to become available within a practical time frame through additional field development, technological advances, or exploration. To achieve such an assessment, it is imperative that the industry adopt a consistent nomenclature for assessing the current and future quantities of petroleum expected to be recovered from naturally occurring underground accumulations. Such quantities are defined as reserves, and their assessment is of considerable importance to governments, international agencies, economists, bankers, and the international energy industry. History and Process The terminology used in classifying petroleum substances and the various categories of reserves have been the subject of much study and discussion for many years.
The table also includes an indication of the primary uses and benefits, along with the cements that they can be used with. The primary effects of the cement admixtures on the physical properties of the cement, either as a slurry or set, are presented in Table 2. This is a quick reference, and individual additives in a given category may not agree in total with the effects as given. It is also typically defined for individual additives, the properties and effects of which can be modified when additive combinations are used.
