SPE Canada

Earlier this year, SPE Canadian Educational Trust was converted into a new entity, the SPE Canadian Educational Foundation (SPECEF). With the new governance structure, SPECEF has the flexibility to create new programs, scholarships, and energy educational initiatives that will benefit SPE Canada members.

SPE members can support the SPECEF through one-time or monthly donations. Charitable contributions to SPECEF are tax deductible.

Visit the SPECEF page for more information and to donate online now (SPE login required).

SPECEF Scholarship applications are being accepted until 19 December. Visit the SPECEF page for instructions and application.

A Message from 2018 SPE President Darcy Spady

Did you know?

The co-located conferences, (SPE Canada Unconventional Resources Conference and the SPE Canada Heavy Oil Technical Conference), taking place 15-16 February 2017, will generate a large number of technical papers focused on Canadian content. Access to all of the papers at both conferences is included with full registration.

Twice the knowledge and half the price. That’s what the combined events offer. SPE is putting together the two best conferences in Canada, giving you convenient access to the technical sessions for both conferences and the shared exhibition.

The vision for co-locating these two conferences is to create Canada’s premiere oil and gas conference and exhibition, one that includes quality technical presentations, industry-focused exhibitions, and brings key people together for knowledge sharing, discussions, and networking.

We are asking our Canadian oil and gas community for their support and participation in this conference. As commodity prices are poised for a rebound, there is no better time to ensure everyone, including the Young Professionals in your organization, are at their prime technically. Please join me and our fellow Canadian oil and gas colleagues at this incredible event in February. Registration is open and early-bird rates are available through 1 February.
