Welcome to the Student Society of Petroleum Engineers, University of Louisiana at Lafayette Chapter's website. Our chapter mainly comprises of the Petroleum Engineering students attending our university, with an open invitation to other engineering disciplines and geology or Physics students to participate.

Currently, we have over 80 student members in our chapter and hope to grow every semester.

The Society of Petroleum Engineers, SPE, is an international technical/professional organization to further the use of technology employed in petroleum recovery and related operations. SPE is one of the largest organizations in the world with a vast online library of technical presentations and papers on petroleum related topics. New technology and technical information is exchanged among members and industry professionals to advance in the operations of petroleum recovery procedures.

Student members of this society are exposed to develop technology through conference participation, chapter meetings and meeting practicing professionals. The student member also receives an annual subscription to the Journal of Petroleum Technology, JPT, that further the education of the students through published papers and case studies of actual petroleum projects. Besides technical exposure, the student broadens his or her opportunity for future job placement and financial assistance while in school.

Enjoy our site and feel free to contact any of the officers to answer any questions.

David Stanley, President 2002-2003.
