We invite you to attend the 2015 SPE Western Regional Meeting, 27 – 30 April at the Hyatt Regency Orange County Hotel, Garden Grove, California, which is less than 10 minutes’ drive to Disneyland, Anaheim
This year we have an exceptional and diverse program covering thermal, conventional and unconventional operations from Alaska to California. In addition to the 84 Technical presentations, the conference program
includes 6 short courses and 3 Field Trips. 84 Technical presentations will be delivered by colleagues from California, Texas, Canada, Norway, Alaska, Pennsylvania and more. The program also includes an oil
industry panel discussion which will present the views of industry leaders from several major operating and service companies.
The WRM 2015 program includes two former SPE presidents who will be teaching and sharing their experiences as well as a Keynote Address by the current 2015 SPE President, Helge Haldorsen. Helge will deliver
the key note luncheon speech and handout the Regional Awards along with our Regional Director, Tom Walsh.
Given the diversity of technical topics and the presence of top talent within our industry, we hope that you will actively plan to participate in this year’s Western Regional Meeting. Stick around after the

Welcome to the 2015 SPE Western Regional Meeting. Our theme this year covers thermal operations, conventional and unconventional plays from California to Alaska, offering a broad range of
very exciting topics. And, we’ll be meeting in close proximity to “The Happiest Place on Earth”, Disneyland.
Our Technical Program Committee has prepared a diverse and stimulating program, which will have something for everyone. We have events for Young Professionals, six continuing education courses,
two panel discussions with industry leaders from across the region, and experts on oil and gas market drivers and trends. Attendees of the Regional Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, April 29 will be
treated to a keynote speech by 2015 SPEI President, Dr. Helge Hove Haldorsen, Vice President of Strategy and Portfolio, and Mexico Country Manager for Statoil Development and Production North
SPE offers such tremendous value to members in transfer of knowledge; professional and social networking opportunities; and competency development. The fact that this year is challenging in
the industry due to low oil price further magnifies SPE’s value to members. I look forward to a rewarding and fun experience with all of you in Anaheim.
I am very proud of the SPE Los Angeles Basin Section leadership, and all of the capable and dedicated volunteers who have organized this meeting. It is only through their hard work and
coordination that meetings like this can occur, and member participation in the meetings is the key driver behind all this activity. I look forward to seeing you in Anaheim.
