The name of this community is the Hydraulic Fracturing Technical Section of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
This technical section encompasses the subject of hydraulic fracturing technology through online events, online networking, workshops, conferences, and by promoting diversity in the industry. The purpose of this section shall be to provide a forum from which technical professionals and academia can:
  • Share knowledge, experience, and best practices
  • Identify major issues and technology areas on which to focus cooperation and discussions
  • Maintain and promote industry awareness of related issues and technologies
  • Enhance their own technical competencies that meet the needs of the petroleum industry
We will accomplish our mission through the transfer of knowledge at study groups, monthly meetings, forums, and workshops.
