Dear Esteemed SPE Colleagues, Distinguished Speakers, and Prospective Delegates,

With a profound sense of honor, I embark upon my role as the leader of the ATCE Program Committee, a distinguished collective comprising industry luminaries entrusted with the task of crafting a comprehensive technical program in commemoration of the Centennial Celebration of SPE's Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition (ATCE). Envisioned under the overarching theme of "Powering the Future of Energy with a Century of Innovation," this year's Fall Meeting will convene in the vibrant city of New Orleans, Louisiana, a cherished energy hub within the SPE community.

The technical program we have meticulously curated will encompass novel solutions showcased through case studies, best practices, and lessons learned across a spectrum of themes including Reservoir, Production and Operations, Drilling, Data Science and Engineering Analytics, Completions, Health, Safety, Environment, and Sustainability, Projects, Facilities, and Construction, as well as Management, and Energy Transition.

From the unforgettable Opening General Session, aptly titled "Celebrating our Past, Powering our Future," to the myriad technical sessions offering insights into a diverse array of topics, our program aims to foster knowledge expansion and facilitate learning from industry subject matter experts, thereby exploring the evolution of technology and innovation within the energy sector, spanning past, present, and future.

We are thrilled to unveil a series of Special Sessions, each featuring distinguished panelists engaged in the discourse of Innovative technologies across various SPE technical disciplines. Furthermore, ATCE 2024 will introduce new Strategic Sessions, providing a platform for esteemed panelists to deliberate upon the contemporary challenges and opportunities confronting the energy industry today and in the times ahead.

Scheduled for 23 September to 25 September 2024, this auspicious event promises to draw an unprecedented turnout for this historic Celebration of the Century. On behalf of the ATCE program committee and SPE Leadership, we eagerly anticipate your active participation in the Technical Sessions, the Exhibit Hall, and the cultural richness of New Orleans' French Quarter.

Warm Regards,

C. Susan Howes, 2024 ATCE Program Chair
