An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility is paramount to every SPE member working in the petroleum industry. However, the ethical dilemmas they experience while progressing through their career stages can vary in nature and complexity, spanning a broad spectrum from student issues to those encountered at an executive level position. Common ethical issues include confidentiality, conflict of interest, copyrights, intellectual property, data fabrication, misrepresentation of safety, compliance with regulations, reserves overbooking, corruption, plagiarism, cheating, and incomplete citations of others’ work. Ethical behavior is required to manage relationships with contractors, vendors, partners, land owners, competitors, governments, regulatory agencies, employees, management and coworkers. This workshop is designed to raise ethical awareness and to facilitate SPE members in understanding and following the twelve canons in SPE’s Code of Professional Conduct. The goals of the workshop will be achieved by engaging the workshop participants in discussing well known case studies from the oil and gas industry, as well as from other industries. Understanding integrity and ethical behavior supports development of the soft skills of leadership and diversity.
