According to 2007 SPE President Jaleel Al-Khalifa, “As one of the Society’s themes for 2007, we wish to put people first and celebrate those members whose outstanding contributions within the region have helped make this Society so successful.”  

Two years ago, the SPE Board of Directors voted to expand SPE''s regional awards programs.  With a large and geographically diverse membership, SPE recognizes that many worthy contributions to the technology and image of our industry are made worldwide.  While SPE presents a number of honors and awards that are society-wide, there was a strong desire to recognize more contributors.  This was accomplished through an expansion of the regional awards program.

Take the time to nominate and document a deserving colleague or section member for any one of the several SPE Regional Awards.  The nomination forms and eligibility criteria are posted online at,,1104_5614809,00.html.  The deadline to submit these nominations and select the recipients is February 15, 2007.  Supporting documentation should be one page or less in length. 

You can complete the forms and submit your nominations for candidates directly to SPE Gulf Coast Region Director Susan Howes at
