Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all!
Hi! My name is Dinh , I'm a Bachelor student of Petroleum Drilling and Production Engineering currently attending the half of my 4rd year of HCM university of technology .I am so happy to be a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers .By reading some petroleum magazines and searching on the internet ,I known that SPE was officially founded in 1957. A group of mining engineers in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., formed the American Institute of Mining Engineers (AIME) to “promote the arts and sciences connected with the economic production of the useful minerals and metals and the welfare of those employed in these industries by all lawful means.” Although founded well before petroleum achieved importance as the world’s principal source of energy, AIME provided an organization through which the application of engineering to the recovery of petroleum and natural gas could be applied. Today, SPE annually organizes more than 50 events around the world devoted to technical information exchange in the upstream oil and gas industry. SPE’s publications, distinguished for their technical reliability, include the monthly Journal of Petroleum Technology (JPT); a suite of peer-reviewed, discipline-centered journals; books written by the industry’s most honored professionals; and an online, 35,000-paper library.
With more than 55,000 members in 100 countries, SPE is the pre-eminent international technical and professional association for engineers and the management of energy resources produced through wellbores Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) scholarship funds is a program to support the students who have a high result in study and who plans to enter a university and pursue an undergraduate degree in petroleum engineering in order to help students complete their post-high school education and prepare for careers. In addition to scholarships, many sections offer funding for university student travel,...
