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.
