ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Distinguished Lecturer Evaluation

    If we all will evaluate each DL that we host, we can receive $1,500 from SPE. We only compete against other small chapters so this is something we can do! The evaluation only takes 2 minutes, so there is no reason not to participate!

  • Golf Fundraiser

    Thanks to all our supporters of the golf tournament raising funds for our North Texas Section's Bob McDaniel Memorial SPE Scholarship. We had 64 golfers participate and 50 hole sponsors! We really appreciate the continued support even as our industry is in a downturn. We will be able to continue giving scholarships as long as we keep up the great work! Save the date for Friday September 29th, 2017 for next year's golf date.

STUDENT SUPPORT

The North Texas Section is proudly the supporting Section for the MSU Student Chapter. Please visit the SPE website to find out more.  Our student members are always welcome to addend our Luncheons and we cover the cost of their meals.

There is an Advisory Board for the MSU Student Chapter that establishes an outline of topics and schedules speakers to give guest lectures to the students working on their petroleum engineering certificate at MSU.  The Advisory Board is in it's infancy now and if you would like to volunteer to participate, please contact Dwight Campbell with Midwestern Mud at 940-766-6296.  Additionally, Jim McCoy, James Tart (both of SPE), Mark Henderson and Tye Thacker are members of the board.
