"The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) (International) is a not-for-profit professional association with 127,000 members in 145 countries engaged in the exploration and production of oil and gas and related energy resources. SPE is a key technical and professional resource providing opportunities to exchange information at in-person and online events and through training, publications, and member programs.?SPE maintains offices in Calgary, Dallas, Dubai, Houston, Kuala Lumpur, and London. It was established on October 6, 1957. It started as a committee within the American Institute of Mining Engineers (AIME) (official website: ) in the early 1900s: "During the decade after the 1901 discovery of the Spindletop field, the American Institute of Mining Engineers (AIME) saw a growing need for a forum in the booming new field of petroleum engineering. As a result, AIME formed a standing committee on oil and gas in 1913. In 1922, the committee was expanded to become one of AIME's 10 professional divisions. The Petroleum Division of AIME continued to grow throughout the next three decades. By 1950, the Petroleum Division had become one of three separate branches of AIME, and in 1957 the Petroleum Branch of AIME was expanded once again to form a professional society. SPE became tax-exempt in March 1985. The first SPE Board of Directors meeting was held 6 October 1957 which is considered its foundation date". Sources: , , and
