During my travels, members in some of the outlying areas of the world tell me about problems they have in getting JPT delivered to them. I wanted to take a moment to talk about what we’re doing to ensure delivery of JPT to every member.
- Hand-delivery of JPT–We hand-delivered more than 1,380 issues in June!
- Seeking private vendors who can provide the best service.
- Obtaining written confirmation from the vendors to track deliveries.
To further help us ensure the timely delivery, we are seeking JPT monitors. A JPT monitor would be responsible for notifying SPE via a simple email, when they receive their monthly issue of JPT. These monitors will help us be more proactive in identifying potential delivery problems.
A few alternate ways to read the latest issue of JPT:
- As soon as an issue is released, it is placed on www.SPE.org/publications.
- We have a mobile app! The JPT app (http://bit.ly/M1FgTz)
- Depending on your section, print issues of JPT are available during the meetings.
I’d like to end this note by thanking you for your time! Of course, I’m always interested in your thoughts and ideas: leave them in the comments. Want to be a JPT monitor? Send us a note to email@example.com.

NOTE: This fraudulent scheme is still an on-going issue for our organization and our members and your help is appreciated.
Over the last few days it has come to our attention that criminals are using SPE’s corporate name in an attempt to commit fraud on the public. To date, there have been numerous checks presented to banks for collections. In each case, an individual receives a fraudulent check with SPE’s name as the payer, along with a San Francisco address. The individual is then asked to deposit the check, and forward funds to another person.
SPE is in no way involved in this fraud scheme. SPE has no San Francisco address, and would never request that a payee forward funds to anyone.
SPE has contacted its bank, and notified the proper authorities. If you receive an unexpected check from The Society of Petroleum Engineers, Inc. and are asked to in turn send money to someone else, please contact Cheryl Finnerty at 972-952-9424. DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, SEND MONEY TO ANYONE BASED ON THESE FRAUDULENT DOCUMENTS.
