The Aberdeen Section is one of the largest of all the SPE Sections across the world with over 2,000 members. In 2017 we won the President’s Award for Excellence for the 8th year in a row - the only section to ever do so.
In 2019 the section once again was awarded the President's Award for Section Excellence, which is something that we are very proud of. The section has over 2,000 members ranging from drilling and completions engineers to production and operations specialists, HSE practitioners, and other professionals. We also serve over 600 student members from 3 student chapters (Aberdeen University, Robert Gordon University, Dundee University, Heriot-Watt University and Strathclyde University).
We aim to enable the global oil and gas E&P industry to share technical knowledge needed to meet the world’s energy needs in a safe and environmentally responsible and climate sensitive manner. To do this we collect, disseminate, and exchange technical knowledge concerning the exploration, development and production of oil and gas resources, energy transition and related technologies for the public benefit; and to provide opportunities for all industry and academic professionals to enhance their technical and professional competence.
