The SPE London Section has provided support to petroleum engineering students for more than 30 years. A financial donation is provided each year to the various student chapters by London Section. This can be used for a variety of purposes such as funding field trips or industry visits, travel to the monthly meetings and library books.
In addition to this, the Young Professionals section of the London Section visit the Student Chapters to provide lectures and graduate skills workshops to advise and familiarize students with the oil and gas industry, and who and where to apply for jobs.
More information for students, including scholarships, can also be found on the SPE International website.
Students are encouraged to attend the monthly meetings in London at a reduced fee. These meetings consist of a lecture on technical, commercial and topical matters by keynote speakers, including SPE Distinguished Speakers from around the world offering a good insight into the industry.
