Energizing Our Lives

Even as the global energy mix is in transition, oil and gas will continue to supply more than half the world's energy for decades to come. From lifting people out of poverty to innovating more efficient technologies, from addressing community needs to reducing environmental impacts, from providing energy to support a growing world economy and population to finding new non-combustion uses for petroleum—SPE members are making major contributions that add value to people's lives.

As part of SPE's 2018 Strategic Plan we want to share the stories of our members and their companies about all of the ways that what we do improves the lives of regular people across our planet.  This page and "Fueling Progress" blog are our starting point for increasing understanding of the positive aspects of the oil and gas industry.

Telling Our Stories

Welcome to SPE’s new blog, “Fueling Progress.” For more than six decades, the Society of Petroleum Engineers has been the established leader in sharing upstream industry knowledge and connecting oil and gas professionals across the globe. We are proud of our many programs that center on technical excellence, innovation, volunteerism, and stewardship. But our greatest asset and the cornerstone of our organization will always be our members.



Have an interesting story to tell? Have you or your company had a positive impact on people's lives through innovation, energy efficiency, environmental protection, community engagement, building infrastructure, or myriad other ways?  Then we'd like to hear your story and possibly feature it on this blog.  Please email us at stories@spe.org.

The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is a global, individual membership professional society organized as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization in the US.  SPE membership is not just petroleum engineers, but includes professionals of all backgrounds and education working in the upstream oil and gas industry.
