Members, friends & colleagues,
I can barely believe it is February already. I trust everyone is well and not too badly affected by the recent storms we’ve seen over the past few weeks. Our calendar of events picks up pace as detailed below, and we are really excited to re-commence physical events in the near future. The first major in-person event is the 35th Offshore Achievement Awards on March 17th at P&J Live, we’ve been sitting on these awards for what seems like such a long time, and we are so close to announcing the winners. As I have said before, making the finalist list should be considered a win. I hope you can join us for the evening.
It’s the absolute last chance to recognise your colleagues and peers in the 2022 SPE Awards cycle, the International Award date has closed, but the Regional categories remain open until March 1st, there’s a huge variety of technical and service disciplines, so don’t delay https://www.spe.org/en/awards/
Further details and information have been released by SPEI regarding the upcoming vote on the proposed merger between SPE and AAPG. The voting opens on March 4th and will remain open for 2 months. This proposed merger will be solely on the will of the members, so if you feel particularly strongly either way it is imperative that you cast your vote. In the event the proposal is approved, it will have little impact in the short term to our work and efforts in the Aberdeen Section and we will continue to deliver our technical and out-reach programmes.
Until next month.
SPE Aberdeen Chair
