Message from the Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the inaugural SPE Energy Transition Symposium! This event will take place 22-23 August 2023, in Houston, Texas. The energy industry is going through a transition, and we believe the Society of Petroleum Engineers has a key role in leading this transition.

The event provides an excellent opportunity for both seasoned and young professionals to share experiences with and learn from colleagues, and to build relationships with attendees with diverse topic backgrounds, such as:

  • Sustainable hydrocarbon development and production
  • Carbon capture, transportation, utilization, and storage
  • Geothermal – power generation
  • Geothermal – direct heat applications
  • Methane emissions management
  • Hydrogen technologies
  • Decarbonization, carbon management, and carbon offsets
  • Wind technologies
  • Power and renewable energy, fuel, and products
  • ESG, financial, policy, and regulations
  • Circularity and integration across the value chain
  • Education and training

On behalf of the 2023 Program and Advisory Committees, we invite you to participate in this exciting new event. Let us transition together by submitting an abstract by 15 March 2023 and plan to attend the event 22-23 August 2023.
