Now about our beautiful country, Oman.  It occupies the north-eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula known for   its wonderful natural beauty and hospitable people ( It’s impressive outcrops are a   geologists paradise and it boasts of a mature and growing oil and gas industry.

SPE Oman Section has been in existence since 1984 and is a proud growing family of 966 members and 4   Students Chapters. SPE Oman’s mission is to be the key technical enabler in supporting Oman’s oil and gas   industry challenges year on year by:

• Collecting, disseminating, and exchanging technical knowledge concerning the exploration, development and   production of Oman’s oil and gas resources, and related technologies for professionals & public benefit; and

• Providing opportunities for Oman based professionals to enhance their technical and professional competences.

• Have collective fun through our social events and activities programmes.

Our typical annual program consists of technical seminars, field trips, and historical nights with other societies and   annual   panel discussion. Monthly luncheons are also important part of our program, aiming mainly for social   gathering and   networking with engineers and managers. The technical topics are contributed by speakers from   local industries as well as international SPE Distinguished Lecturers

This renewed SPE Oman website serves a forum to highlight our major activities and student chapters’ activities.
In addition to pronouncing our stated mission and vision, we plan to periodically post fascinating industry trivia   under a new   tab “fun”.  The local Student Chapters are encouraged to send highlights about their major events to   the website   coordinator.

Take your future in the right direction with your involvement in your local SPE Chapter activities.
