The SPE Board of Directors has endorsed a plan to expand the delivery of SPE training courses, conferences and workshops internationally in order to support SPE’s mission of technology transfer.
A critical element of this initiative is to obtain guidance from members and from the industry leaders regarding local circumstances, needs and related initiatives. Regional Councils are being created across the globe to provide this input.
SPE Russia and the Caspian Regional Council was established in 2013.
In an effort to better meet the local, regional, and technical needs, the Regional Council helps to identify “hot topics” of regional or global interest that are of importance for the region to be addressed at conferences, workshops or training courses to further the SPE mission of technology dissemination.
