About SPE  

Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE)  is the largest individual-member organization serving managers, engineers, scientists and other professionals worldwide in the upstream segment of the oil and gas industry.


SPE Northern Norway is the newest section of the five existing sections in Norway. On December 7th 2010 it was formally approved as a section by SPE International. SPE Northern Norway covers the counties of Nordland, Troms and Finnmark county, totaling 112 946 km2.


Our section had its first successful event in May 2011, with presenters from SPE Stavanger and Statoil Harstad. During the past year and through spring 2012, SPE Northern Norway facilitated four high quality technical presentations and workshops in Harstad. In addition, the presentations were transferred on a video link to other locations where we have members present. This made it possible for members located in Alta and Hammerfest to attend without having to travel to Harstad.

Distinguished lecturers (DL) from SPE International are eager to visit our section, and during this season there will be three presentations given by DL from SPE International.


One of our drivers is to set employees from the various petroleum related companies in the different cities in Northern Norway in contact with each other through the SPE platform, which is exchanging technical knowledge concerning exploration, development and production of oil and gas resources. Our vision is to give our members the highest quality of lifelong learning, for a continuous personal and professional growth.
