The SPE Board at its March meeting approved the name change of the IT Technical Section to the Digital Energy Technical Section (DETS).
“This change reflects the primary mission of the Section and appeals to a broader audience,” according to Section chairperson Mehrzad Mahdavi. “We also intend to promote the significant impact of information technologies beyond the main support functions of companies into the forefroont of integrated operations,” added Philippe Flichy, head of the Section’s Event and Marketing Committee.
The Digital Energy Technical Section has become a place of cooperation and interaction among various stake holders involved in the optimization of oilfield assets. The Section also provides a platform for coordination of SPE events around the digital oilfield theme. Membership in the Section is open to all SPE members.
