Meet the Team

Our planning team is made of dedicated volunteers from the upstream segment of the oil and gas industry. We recognize the importance to retain experience and expertise in our fields and it is our objective to provide a platform for industry professionals and employers to identify mutually rewarding opportunities.

The industry needs experienced professionals to find new oil and gas deposits and to develop projects safely, efficiently, and economically. Experts will have to transfer skills to junior professional to maintain knowledge within the industry’s lifecycles.

Since 2016, SPE has hosted the Upstream Professional Hiring Event twice a year. We continue our efforts for planning and coordinating this Fall’s event for talented professionals and leading employers to meet and ensure the energy industry continues to thrive.
