SPE awards recognize members who have contributed exceptional service and leadership to the society and the community, as well as those who made major professional contributions to their technical disciplines. SPE international awards are global in scope, recognising members who have made industry-wide achievements or provided significant local impact. International awards are presented during ATCE. SPE’s regional awards recognize members in each region for their outstanding technical and service contributions. They are presented at region and section meetings. The 2020 regional award recipients become candidates for the equivalent international award in 2021. You can see the list of all 2020 award recipients here.
