Meet the 2017 Co-chair of the SPE Latin American and Caribbean Heavy and Extra Heavy Oil Conference

"We need to share insights on experience and technology”

During Victor Huerta’s interview (pdf), he highlighted the importance to learn the latest insights on cold and thermal recovery, and production. “We need new or revised development strategies to maximize the recovery of heavy and extra-heavy oil in production fields, and new ideas to monetize the volume of these hydrocarbons in new fields which have low or no infrastructure.”

Students Spotlight: Universidad Autonoma De Nuevo Leon Chapter

On their way to ATCE, four students from the Universidad Autonoma De Nuevo Leon Chapter drove from Monterrey to Dallas to visit the SPE office. During their visit, they toured the building, met with SPE staff, and enjoyed an interactive presentation followed by a Q&A session. They also shared that the key reason for attending ATCE is networking.

SPE was grateful to learn about their activities and efforts to implement the Society’s mission into their chapter and wished them a great time at ATCE!
