The Northside Study Group of the SPE Gulf Coast Section provides petroleum technical and case study information to operating, service, drilling, and consulting companies on the Northside of Houston. We are dedicated to providing luncheon meetings with technical content to assist our members in keeping abreast of the latest technological advancements in the petroleum industry and career development opportunities. Presentations of particular interest have been on the subjects of production, stimulation, and fracturing technology for unconventional reservoirs.

We meet the second Tuesday of each month for a presentation and luncheon at a venue in the I-45 North area. Occasionally, we may have to select another date, depending on schedule conflicts. Check the SPE-GCS Calendar under the News & Events tab above for the latest schedule. If you are registered on the SPE-GCS website and SIGN UP for our E-Newsletter, you will receive announcements as meetings are confirmed.
