SPE Student Support Activities
No industry can survive unless it succeeds in inspiring future generations to join its ranks.
Through its student support activities in the UK, the SPE seeks to encourage interest and understanding in the E&P industry among students from primary age right through to university and beyond.
Speakers’ packs are available to help members capture the imagination of young audiences, while the ‘Discover Petroleum’ section of the Energy Institute website (supported by the SPE Aberdeen and London Sections) includes interactive games, information and virtual tours of an offshore platform for two separate age-groups (8 to 12, and 13 to 16).
Order your Speakers' packs using the Speakers' Packs Order Form, including UKOOA PowerPoint presentations for three different age bands (8 to 11; 12 to 16 and 17 to 18), a Magic Suitcase with table-top experiments and a video introduction to the oil and gas industry. Please complete the form and fax it back to Prof. Martin Blunt on 020 7594 7444.

Capable, well-educated and articulate students are the future lifeblood of the E&P industry and the SPE is an active supporter of petroleum engineering studies, including the SPE student chapters, at eight UK universities. These are the Universities of Derby, Leeds, Manchester, Portsmouth, Salford and London South Bank; Imperial College, London; Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh; and Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen.
