SPE Canada


Some Canadian professionals have been contacted by a group claiming to represent SPE as part of an “environmental survey.” SPE has not authorized this survey and is not involved with these calls or this survey.

Be Part of the Legacy

Submit a paper to the Journal of Canadian Petroleum Technology (JCPT), the only regional SPE Journal that tackles Canadian-focused technologies.

With more than 53 publishing years and an archive of papers dating back to January 2009, JCPT continues to be a true Canadian legacy.

This journal of record for the Canadian oil and gas industry provides timely technical papers ranging from heavy oil and oil-sands technology, thermal recovery techniques, unconventional gas supplies, optimization techniques, increasing recovery from older basins, and other technologies designed for the production challenges of Canada.

Other features include a Technology Summary from a local industry leader, an annual Software Profile supplement, Technical Reports from Canadian the Petroleum Technology Research Centre and the Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada, and an up-to-date Directory of Professional Services.

Additionally, JCPT publishes special issues highlighting developing ventures within Canada, such as the Saleski Project in July.

Participate in SPE Canada’s Energy Outreach program – Energy4Me

If you are passionate about the industry and want to influence school children to pick oil and gas as their career, we want to hear from you. The Energy4Me program connects oil and gas professionals just like you with nearby schools to give presentations about our industry. If you would like to be a presenter and help us expand this important program in Canada, please contact specal@spe.org and put “Energy4Me” in the title.

Join SPE

Expand your technical knowledge of Canadian E&P. The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) isn't just another professional orgnaization. It's a vast array of resources including several designed specifically for Canada. Work in upstream oil and gas? SPE is for you.
