Oil and gas is a high-technology industry, where companies, scientists, and engineers continually challenge the barriers of what is possible to find and produce energy. New techniques and technologies discovered through R&D have been vital in enabling the industry to meet global energy demand, and will continue to be vital as the industry overcomes current and future challenges.
Find information on SPE activities to encourage and facilitate R&D in the oil and gas industry with a focus on exploration and production.
The first four papers are available.
Every other year, SPE holds a conference focused on identifying and discussing key R&D challenges facing the E&P industry.
This is a standing committee whose role is to identify and facilitate global R&D activities that will provide needed technology for future use of petroleum engineers. Volunteer for the commitee.
