Regional Director's Message

Cesar Patiño

Cesar Patiño

Dear SPE Latin America and the Caribbean Family,

During these last three years, I have worked closely with our region increasing communication while integrating our cultures, technical disciplines and development opinions. I have travelled from the Caribbean Islands to the Argentine Pampas, integrated by the Andes mountain ranges and our Atlantic and Pacific coasts to attend various events and be closer with our members while developing different activities for our members. Due to this togetherness, I was able to implement joint growth scenarios in Technology, Knowledge and Innovation which are aligned with the Values of Our SPE. This joint strategic framework included the Technical Needs of our hydrocarbon industry within a framework of demand in efficiency, optimization, energy transition, circular economy, sustainable development and growth. It was adjusted to adapt to the changes in our economies and evaluation of projects due to the new normal, from the end of 2017 to the end of 2020.
