SPE Bergen Young Professionals Programme

SPE recognises the importance of those who will one day be the leaders of teh E&P industry.  Along with many other SPE sections, the Bergen Section is facilitating a Young Professionals (YP) Programme to support and assist those with less than 10 years experience in the industry (35 years and under).

The programme promotes knowledge exchange and networking amongst YPs in the Bergen area, as well as towards other YP Programmes in Norway, Europe and globally. We strongly encourage graduating student members to conintue their member with SPE and enter the workforce backed by one of the most respected and important organisations within the petroleum industry.

SPE Bergen Student Chapter

Established in 2006, the SPE Bergen Student Chapter quickly became the main link between oil and gas students and the industry in the Bergen region. Counting some 400 student members, the chapter is one of the largest and most vibrant SPE student chapters in the world. For its members, the chapter hosts a variety of activities and events focused on knowledge enhancement and network building.

The SPE Bergen Student Chapter encourages all energy companies to present technical information and employment opportunities at their regular member meetings. Visit the student stand in the exhibition for more information about student activities within SPE or contact spe@uib.no.
