About Us

SPE London YP

Following on from four years of increasing global recognition by SPE International, SPE London-YP is striving to provide even greater value to SPE members for the 2015/16 year. Through a variety of innovative technical, social and university liaison activities, the committee hopes to:

  • Bring students closer to YPs and more experienced upstream E&P professionals via our Ambassador Lecture Programme, SPE Mentoring and Recruitment Skills Initiative.
  • Strive for technical excellence and knowledge exchange through a range of events available to all members; including interactive field trips.
  • Make SPE London-YP fun and a great way to make new friends and contacts via our social and professional networking programme.
  • Demonstrate best practice to other SPE YP organisations worldwide.

SPE London-YP aims to bring young professionals closer to other YP societies both in the London area, and beyond in association with other European SPE YP Committees.

If you have any good ideas for further events, we would welcome your suggestions at
