Society of Petroleum Engineers

Society of Petroleum Engineers

We are the largest individual-member organization serving managers, engineers, scientists and other professionals worldwide in the upstream segment of the oil and gas industry.

In 1957, the organization was officially founded as the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), a constituent society of AIME - American Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum Engineers. SPE became a separately incorporated organization in 1985.

The SPE Board of Directors is the policy-making and governing body of SPE. SPE board committees oversee many of SPE's administrative and operating responsibilities. The board retains final authority on all SPE matters, including any actions the board committees may take.
