SPE Distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award

The SPE Distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes contributions to SPE and the E&P industry that exhibit such exceptional devotion of time, effort, thought, and action as to set them apart from other contributions. This award will be given to relatively few individuals whose contributions to the industry stand out even above their excellence of services to SPE.
