Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to inform you that the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE) will be in Dubai, U.A.E. in 2021. As Programme Committee Chairperson, it is my pleasure to invite you to visit the city of future where culture and technology with quality hospitality and adventure await you 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 continues to recover from an unprecedented period in 2020, we have developed innovative ways to extract valuable insights from the data collected and have developed new products and processes to economically extract hydrocarbons. Please share your experiences as an innovator, or implementer, with other industry-leading engineers, scientists, managers, executives, and policymakers who will be attending. While our industry faces many challenges, innovation and determination are alive and well.

This flagship SPE event is set for 21–23 September 2021 and is expected to attract over 10,000 industry professionals from around the world.  The Programme 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.  

We would like to encourage our members to be more focused on collaboration between senior professionals and young professionals, and among research institutes, service companies, and operators in writing and presenting their papers. Your paper will become a part of the multi-society library, OnePetro.org, and maybe selected for publication in one of the SPE technical journals. So, please join us in Dubai, in 2021.

Best Regards,

Fareed AlHashmi
ATCE Programme Chair
