ATCE Event Update

ATCE Event Update

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the city of Houston has caused both the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) to reevaluate plans for our respective co-located annual meetings in October 2020. 

SEG has made the decision to host a virtual only conference. SPE is considering several options for its Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE). More information about ATCE will be provided very soon.

We appreciate your patience during these uncertain times. We continue to make all decisions with the health and safety of all attendees and exhibitors as our priority. 



Thank You to Our 2020 Sponsors

Watch the 2019 Opening General Session

"The opening general session was fantastic, with knowledgeable panelists speaking on sustainability and the future of oil and gas. The panel did an outstanding job of addressing ways to improve people’s lives through hydrocarbon development, while also maintaining our earth as we know it today.”

- 2019 SPE President Sami Alnuaim

"ATCE is always a great event for companies to meet with customers and to showcase technology."
- Diane Erbstoesser, TAM International

"If there were only one conference where I could exhibit each year, it would be SPE's ATCE."
- Bill Cline, Baker Hughes, a GE company


Stay Safe, Avoid Attendee and Exhibitor Scams

Experient is the official registration and housing vendor for ATCE.

You may encounter other companies or websites, including Kore Conferences and atce2019.org, claiming to process ATCE registration or assist with hotel booking, but they are not associated with SPE nor the conference and are not authorized to use the SPE name or trademark. SPE has made several legal attempts to stop other sites from posing as SPE but with limited success. SPE will continue the effort to stop these sites, and we ask all attendees to be alert while registering in order to avoid potential scams.
