SPE Gulf Coast: Oil Patch Orientation
One or two times a year, depending on demand (and usually the price of oil!) the SPE Gulf Coast Section presents its Oil Patch Orientation. The Gulf Coast Section is the largest and most active section of the SPE, and this program has become the most popular event on it’s calendar. Money raised from this event benefits the SPE GCS scholarship fund.
This seminar is the most popular SPE program. The course is designed as non-technical audio-visual guided tour through the oil patch, illustrating the basic equipment and techniques used in the discovery, development and production of petroleum.
