Message from the Program Chair

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to invite you to participate in the SPE Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition (ATCE) to be held in Houston, Texas, USA, in 2022.  As Program Committee Chairman, it is my pleasure to host you in the city that has served as a major hub for attracting world-class innovation, captains of industry, and the brightest minds from across the globe.  Enjoy exceptional entertainment, fine dining, and the wonderful cosmopolitan environment while you participate in our premier industry event by submitting a paper proposal that shares your innovation, technical advancement, best practices, and case studies with your industry peers. 

As the industry evolves to adapt to the change in regulatory and environmental landscape, we are seeking your innovative ideas and best practices in areas of the use of digital technologies, and energy transition. Presenting your ideas can rapidly transform into solutions that will help today’s energy professionals solve the critical challenges impacting our industry.

This flagship SPE event is set for 3–5 October 2022 and is expected to attract over 10,000 industry professionals from around the world.  The paper proposal submission deadline is Monday, 31 January 2022.  The Program Committee has been challenged to be creative in their respective disciplines to have some innovative formats and session structure, to complement the traditional paper presentations chosen from submitted abstracts.  

The Program Committee would like to encourage our members to be more focused on collaboration between senior professionals and young professionals, and among research institutes, government, service companies, and operators in writing and presenting their papers.  Your paper will be published in OnePetro® and may be selected for publication in one of the SPE technical journals. So, please join us in Houston, in 2022.

Best Regards,

22ATCE Chair
