RICHARDSON, Texas -- The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) have formalized an agreement for intersociety cooperation on joint events, programs, and services.

In addition to reaching out to younger members and students, the societies are exploring collaboration possibilities including publications and professional development programs.

“We have a number of areas of overlapping interest, and know that our efforts to work more closely together on the operation of conferences will be appreciated by the petroleum industry by allowing them to reach both geophysicists and engineering professionals in one venue,” says Larry Lines, 2009 SEG president. “SEG’s strong network of sections and associated societies and its large cadre of student chapters and student members provide an excellent platform for collaboration.”
