Terms of Use

The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) uses RSS (Really Simple Syndication) to offer feeds of SPE news headlines in XML format to SPE Site visitors who use RSS aggregators. These Terms of Use (which may be changed at any time without notice) govern the use of this service.

Use of RSS Feeds

RSS is a free service offered by SPE for non-commercial use. Any other uses, including without limitation the incorporation of advertising into or the placement of advertising associated with or targeted towards the RSS content, are prohibited. You must use the RSS feeds as provided by SPE, and you may not edit or modify the text, content or links supplied by SPE. For web posting or reprint of SPE content, please send your request to web@spe.org.

Link to Content Pages

SPE’s RSS service may be used only when a direct, functional link is made available that takes the viewer directly to the display of the full article on the SPE website. You may not display the RSS content in a manner that does not permit successful linking to, redirection to or delivery of the applicable SPE site web page. You may not insert any intermediate page, splash page or other content between the RSS link and the applicable SPE site web page.


SPE retains all ownership and other rights to the RSS content, and any and all SPE logos and trademarks used in connection with the RSS service. You must provide attribution to the appropriate SPE website in connection with your use of the RSS feeds. If you provide this attribution using a graphic, you must use the appropriate SPE logo that we have incorporated into the RSS feed.

Right to Discontinue Feeds

SPE reserves the right to discontinue providing any or all of the RSS feeds at any time and to require you to cease displaying, distributing or otherwise using any or all of the RSS feeds for any reason including, without limitation, your violation of any provision of these Terms of Use. SPE assumes no liability for any of your activities in connection with the RSS feeds or for your use of the RSS feeds in connection with your website.
