Dear colleagues and friends!

Welcome to the May issue of SPE London Review online magazine.

It’s always important for us to be engaged with our members, and to know our activities are relevant and of great interest to you.

Therefore, I would like to thank you all for participating in our recent survey where we tried to understand what topics you expect us to deliver in future. In particular, the topics which are useful for both Young Professionals (YPs) and Senior Professionals (SPs).

We have received a good mix of responses between YP and SP, with a representative selection of answers, and we have a good idea on how we will progress. For those who are curious, the three most popular answers were: the modelling pitfalls, business deals and asset valuation, and a career progression.

As we have analysed the survey results, we are now in a position of framing our events for the next year. However, if you missed our survey, you are always welcome to communicate with us via our social media channels or get in touch by e-mail: SPELondon@spemail.org.

Of course, you don’t have to wait until the next year to enjoy the variety of our great events. We have many already scheduled, so you can start booking now: ‘Mergers and Acquisitions in Oil and Gas’ (YP evening talk); ‘Public Relations in Upstream Oil and Gas’ (Business Development committee evening talk); ‘Introduction to Exploration and Production’ (one day seminar); and ‘Negotiating for a gender-balanced future’ (one day seminar –Women in Energy).

For more information and how to book, please, look further in this issue. And I am looking forward to meeting you at one of them.

Kind regards,

Dr Olga Bradulina

SPE Chairperson
