The French YP Section and  SPE Student Chapter kicked off its 2007 activities with a joint event titled “The People Imperative” presented by 2007 SPE President Abdul-Jaleel Al-Khalifa in Paris. Approximately 40 Institute Français du Pétrole students and YPs were delighted to welcome the SPE President. The main subject of his discussion was “What can people do to extend the life of the oil industry?” Senior members of the SPE French Section were in agreement with Al-Khalifa that a remarkable change in both ultimate recovery and finding success can happen only if people develop, deploy, and embrace a new breed of innovation and frontier-breaking technologies.
