Nov 7, 2018: Scholarship Program WINNERS.

We have an early announcement on who has been selected.

Sept 18, 2018: Since 2013, SPE Thailand has 100% subsidized Members attendance fees at our Monthly Meetings. Owing to reduced sponsorship income (driven largely by lower E&P activities in recent years), we will be revising the monthly meeting fees for all categories commencing in September 2018. Note that the fees for Members will still be significantly subsidized, hence we would encourage all Non- Members to consider joining SPE.


STUDENTS are admitted FREE to these meetings with advanced registration.
