Several SPE sections have received recognition for outstanding contributions to the association. Nine SPE sections have been awarded the 2019 SPE Presidential Award for Outstanding Section, the highest honor a section can receive. These sections form the highest-ranked 5% of SPE’s 203 sections around the world.

The awards will be presented to section officers at the 2019 SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
