  • Identifying the above-stated needs of the section membership by surveys, interviews and accumulating information from individual requests
  • Developing new courses as needed and as identified
  • Piloting short courses for the Society of Petroleum Engineers (the majority of SPE-sanctioned short courses were either developed or piloted in the Gulf Coast Section)
  • Championing timely initiatives, such as distance learning, computer-based training, cooperative efforts with universities and other professional societies.

Annual or popular recurring events of interest include:

  • Oil Patch Orientation
