The Future of SPE and ATCE
But what lies ahead for ATCE and SPE in the next 100 years? With the progression of the latest technologies, holding conferences like an episode of The Jetsons may not be far from reality! But on a more serious note, prepare yourself for an exciting journey. Although our industry faces mounting pressures related to the global environment, sustainability, and resource utilization, as petroleum engineers it’s our duty to tackle these challenges head-on. For example, drilling—a core element of energy, will continue to evolve to meet new demands. We can explore more innovative ways to utilize wells, whether it’s for gas injection or other purposes. Technology will continue to transform our industry, and we’ll adapt accordingly. Rest assured, ATCE will continue to evolve with the times, remaining the essential gathering point that it has been for a century.
