Recognizing the need to preserve the experience and knowledge of those innovators who have contributed to the advancement of the industry, the SPE Board of Directors has authorized a history archive project to collect personal remembrances and informational articles for its members and the public. The entire archive will be housed online on the Engineering and Technology History Wiki (ETHW).
The website will provide a wiki-based platform, allowing you to create and edit articles to relate your experience in the petroleum industry. The archive will offer Oral Histories, video interviews with industry veterans who have made significant contributions in their respective disciplines; Firsthand Histories, which are personal stories about working in the industry; and Topic Articles, which provide a more technical angle on history.
Learn more about how to share your stories or how to contribute your own research into the history of the petroleum industry, and watch Oral History videos, by visiting Share Your Story.
The full ETHW will be launched in January in conjunction with other engineering societies.
