Ethical practices in petroleum engineering are important for upholding industry standards, improving the public perception of our industry, and preserving our individual integrity. This meeting will include an introduction to concepts and guidelines for professional ethics and both in-person and online participants will discuss some real examples of the ethical challenges that arise in the practice of petroleum engineering. Please contact the speaker if you know of ethical issues or questions that would be beneficial to discuss in the meeting. Members of all experience levels and specialties should find relevance in the examples. Participants will be credited with 1 PDH to fulfill the annual requirement for continuing education on ethics for professional engineers and can potentially be used for those who still need an ethics credit for 2020.
