ATCE—Your Destination for All Things E&P

Since the first edition 98 years ago, ATCE has attracted the E&P industry's greatest minds from around the globe. Reflecting our global industry, ATCE is becoming an increasingly important international event. Florence hosted ATCE in 2008, Amsterdam hosted the conference in 2014, and in 2022, SPE returns to Houston for the 15th time.

Training courses held before and after ATCE draw attendees seeking to boost their expertise. The conference features special events designed for students and young professionals, trendsetters, and leaders in the making.

SPE's strong affiliation with leading companies in the oil and gas business is reflected in the industry categories represented by SPE members, many of whom attend ATCE.
