We’re always excited and honored to be included in this great program hosted by the SPE Gulf Coast Section. There is a great team of presenters covering a wide range of topics. Hope to see you there!
As noted on the SPE event page,
This seminar is the most popular SPE program. The course is designed as non-technical audio-visual guided tour through the oil patch, illustrating the basic equipment and techniques used in the discovery, development and production of petroleum.
Our team recorded my segment of the presentation at last year’s session, which you can listen to here. Of course, since I cover current trends and opportunities in the oil industry, it is always changing – but that’s part of the fun!
