ABOUT THE SOCIETY OF PETROLEUM EVALUATION ENGINEERS
The Society of Petroleum Evaluation Engineers (SPEE) was formed in 1962 to answer a longstanding need for a professional organization which would bring together, for their mutual benefit, specialists in the evaluation of petroleum and natural gas properties. SPEE continues today to be strongly committed to providing educational and other services to its members and to the oil and gas industry, and to promoting the profession of petroleum evaluation engineering.
The professional activities of SPEE members are guided by by-laws that require the highest ethical standards and that provide for a committee to review grievances filed against members. Principles of acceptable evaluation engineering practice address the relationships of members with the public, with employers, with clients, with other members, and with SPEE.
Local chapters meet in Austin, Calgary, Central California, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Midland, Oklahoma City, and Tulsa. SPEE (Calgary) meets monthly, except during the summer months. A schedule of upcoming meetings and topics is available on the MEETINGS & EVENTS page.
SPEE (Calgary) and the former Petroleum Society of CIM (now SPE Canada) have co-authored the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook (COGEH) which currently consists of three volumes that provide a set of standards and guidelines for the preparation of oil and gas reserve evaluations in Canada. Details of these guidelines are available on the PRODUCTS page.
Additonal details, history and membership requirements of SPEE can be found on the SPEE WEBSITE. If you would like more information on SPEE (Calgary) please contact one of the members of the executive or the membership coordinator.
