SPE Technical Reports

What are SPE Technical Reports?

SPE Technical Reports provide information on topics where the SPE membership and the public would benefit from understanding the current technology and challenges. Each report is the result of broad-based input from subject-matter experts. Draft Technical Reports are prepared by a committee and posted for SPE member review and comment for at least 30 days. Comments received are considered in finalizing the report for submission to the SPE Board of Directors for approval for publication. Any SPE member can propose development of a Technical Report to the SPE Board of Directors. Learn more in our guidelines document.
