Join the SPE Gulf Coast Section in 2018 as we celebrate another year of student success, emerging professionals, established industry leaders and long-time members and supporters!  
Every year the Society of Petroleum Engineers Gulf Coast Section (SPE-GCS) holds a banquet to honor SPE Scholarship recipients, Young Professionals, the SPE Legion of Honor, and the recipients of the SPE Gulf Coast Section North America Regional awards and SPE Gulf Coast Section awards. 
The 2018 SPE Gulf Coast Section Scholarship and Awards Banquet will be held on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at the HESS Club at 5430 Westheimer Houston, TX 77056  from 5:30pm to 8:30pm. 

The SPE- GCS gives over $350,000 annually in scholarships.  The annual SPE-GCS Awards Banquet recognizes the high school seniors and college students who have received an SPE-GCS or Communities In Schools scholarship for the 2018-19 academic year. 

The scholarship recipients and their parents are invited to attend.  This is a great opportunity to welcome outstanding students into the petroleum industry and to make a positive impression on members of the community.  In addition, this event also recognizes our Legion of Honor award recipients as well as our SPE Sectional and Regional award winners.  Members of the Legion of Honor have served SPE for fifty years and will be honored for their long-standing commitment to our professional society.


 The Gulf Coast Section is SPE’s largest section, with the most members of all SPE sections worldwide. This night is your chance to show your support to those of us who are entering the industry, those of us who are leading the industry, and those of us who have spent their lives in the industry.

Sign up to attend or sponsor today! Let everyone know that you support the continued success of the Gulf Coast Section.
