Travel & Accommodations

The SPE Latin American and Caribbean Petroleum Engineering Conference (LACPEC) is the pre-eminent technical event for exploration and production in the Latin American and Caribbean regions.

This event is specifically designed to meet the existing, emerging, and future technical and social needs for the upstream petroleum sector. The 2014 theme is "Strategic Opportunities in Latin America—Conventional and Unconventional Oil and Gas Systems."

This theme emphasizes the enormous resource base and potential for production and reserves growth in Latin America and the Caribbean region—particularly for deepwater, mature and heavy oil—and world-class potential in shale gas and liquids-rich petroleum systems. The strategic value of our region is enormous, on par with any other opportunities current and emerging on the global scene. Major investments in infrastructure and development are in progress, and this conference will highlight many of these projects as well as the opportunities in the region.
