Message from Chair 

Dear Colleagues,

The 2019 SPE Western Regional Meeting promises to present an excellent opportunity to learn about the latest technical developments in areas of technology of significant interest to petroleum engineers at this time. The meeting will be at the capital of Silicon Valley where considerable work in the areas of big data, data analytics, and digital transformation in cooperation with the petroleum engineering community is underway and will be prominently featured in our program. Of course, our traditional areas of interest drilling and completion, formation evaluation, production, reservoir, facilities, health safety and the environment will provide the core of the program. Special areas of technology like heavy oil, thermal recovery, geothermal operations, and innovations will be part of the highlights of the program.

In addition to the technical program, networking with and learning from fellow SPE members, the meeting will include two panel discussions on Digital Transformation and Sustainability and Regulatory Issues, a comprehensive list of short courses, field trips, and keynote presentations by industry leaders including SPE 2020 president Shauna Noonan.

Your SPE Golden Gate Section colleagues are looking forward to hosting you during this meeting.
