The SPE Board of Directors has realigned the Production & Operations and Projects, Facilities & Construction technical disciplines under one Technical Director. Hisham Saadawi will begin his term as Production and Facilities Technical Director after the 2016 Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition.
In this position, Saadawi will represent both technical disciplines–Production & Operations and Projects, Facilities & Construction.
While the alignment has changed, SPE members will not experience any changes to existing programs or resources. The Production & Operations and Projects, Facilities & Construction disciplines remain unaltered.
Small-sized Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) platforms will be ideal for aerial robotics in facility inspection and monitoring of deep water production platforms, offshore and onshore facilities, rapid response and assessment tool to monitor an oil spill, monitoring endangered species along oil and gas operation corridors, and security of our critical infrastructure from threats.
