SPE Asia-Pacific Advisory Council

The SPE Asia Pacific Advisory Council (“Council”) evolved from the SPE Asia Pacific Sdn. Bhd. Board of Directors to become an established council in January 2017. It is a council approved by the Board of the Society of Petroleum Engineers, and is represented by a diverse set of executives across the Asia Pacific region and industry value chain. The council provides critical guidance on regionalisation and localisation of SPE activities, regional technical content needs, and supports related initiatives to further SPE’s mission of technology transfer.
