Letter from Section Chair
Dear SPE Colleagues,
SPE’s tradition of sharing knowledge and providing members with lifelong learning and continuous growth opportunities in our ever-changing world is a significant asset.
One of the focus areas for the Queensland section is our technical programme. We are continuing to bring high-quality events to the section members, such as the series of talks from the SPE Distinguished Lecturers. Being a part of a global organisation gives us unique opportunities to broaden our expertise and learn from the best in the industry worldwide. At the same time, we plan to have excellent presenters sharing their local experiences. We hope that these events will stimulate professional discussion and bring immediate and long term benefits to the industry in Queensland.
The energy landscape is changing, and any change brings uncertainty and new opportunities. Energy transition, the future energy mix and many other questions are on the minds of many SPE members. Our industry has a lot to offer in this transition, starting from the immediately available energy sources and including a deep pool of expertise and extensive large-scale project experience. I believe our industry is a part of the solution. With that, I am pleased to announce the creation of the sustainability committee in the Section. This initiative is originated and passionately supported by the section committee and is aligned with the SPE global sustainability program Gaia.
The petroleum industry is a critical part of the worldwide economy and development. Since its beginnings, the industry has faced and solved complex problems and challenges, both technical and far beyond. The challenges continue to evolve, and overcoming them requires an efficient network between specialists from different disciplines and organisations. We will continue creating opportunities for the members to extend and develop their professional network.
With kind regards,
SPE Queensland Chairperson 2022
