Since the first edition 91 years ago, the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE) has attracted more than a half million of the E&P industry’s greatest minds from around the globe. Reflecting our global industry, ATCE is becoming an increasingly important international event. Florence hosted ATCE in 2008, Amsterdam hosted the conference in 2014, and in 2016, SPE is proud to announce that ATCE will be held in the Middle East for the first time, in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The 2013 event drew more than 12,000 attendees and included the presentation of nearly 400 peer-selected papers covering technical advances, best practices, and future trends in all facets of E&P. In addition, more than 500 exhibitors were in attendance to display their newest technologies and tools.

Training courses held before and after ATCE draw attendees seeking to boost their expertise. The conference features special events designed for students and young professionals, trendsetters, and leaders in the making.

SPE’s strong affiliation with leading companies in the oil and gas business is reflected in the industry categories represented by SPE members, many of whom attend ATCE.
