Each year, SPE selects a group of around 30 individuals who are experts in their field and capable speakers to share their expertise with SPE members through visits to local sections. The individuals are nominated by their peers, and selection by the Distinguished Lecturer Committee is a recognition of their expertise.

About the Program
Started in 1961 with three lecturers the Distinguished Lecturer Program is funded primarily by the SPE Foundation through member donations and a contribution from Offshore Europe. We also appreciate the companies that allow their professionals to serve as lecturers and the additional support from AIME. More than 450 presentations are offered each year, and each section can receive up to three lectures per year.
