The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is a not-for-profit professional association whose members are engaged in energy resources development and production. SPE serves more than 168,000 members in 144 countries worldwide. SPE is a key resource for technical knowledge related to the oil and gas exploration and production industry and provides services through its publications, events, training courses, and online resources at www.spe.org.
ITF has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the SPE to share and enhance global technology development opportunities in the oil and gas industry. The MOU will allow ITF access to SPE’s strong network of industry experts as well as detailed information on the latest technology challenges identified during SPE’s Applied Technical Workshops. In turn, SPE will benefit from the provision of ITF’s established roadmap mechanism to identify technology challenges, seek solutions and fast track implementation through joint industry projects.
Opportunities to work together could include running combined events or calls for proposals, mutual sharing of information with members, as well as joint promotion of each organisations’ events.
