Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues, 

On behalf of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), it gives me immense pleasure to invite you to join over 1,000 HSE and Sustainability practitioners at the SPE International Conference and Exhibition on Health, Safety, Environment, and Sustainability held in conjunction with LACPEC, 28–30 July 2020 in Bogotá, Colombia.  

The 2018-2023 SPE Strategic Plan expressly introduces two aspects of our business that we often take for granted and yet at this juncture in history - our history as an industry and the history of humanity - these two aspects have never needed to be so visible and so deeply understood - they are Generating Pride and Enabling Engagement.

The Generating Pride and Enabling Engagement theme will frame the conference’s technical program. 
We promise you a robust technical program that will showcase best practices, tackle challenges, explore uncharted territory and contribute to the many efforts made every day by the dedicated members of our industry. 
This program will cater to those who work to make our industry safer, and more ecological, whilst performing its higher purpose of providing key fuels to meet humanity’s need for energy.  

Let’s build on the work of our predecessors and make these co-located events the best conferences of the year. 

We look forward to meeting you there!
