As an SPE member, you gain access to the monthly edition of JPT on the 1st of each month (and archived issues at any time) by using your login and password.

Each issue includes synopses of 12 OnePetro papers recently presented at conferences. You may download for free the SPE papers synopsized in that issue for 2 months. Be sure to take a look at each issue to spot papers of interest and download them.

Beginning with the January issue, we’ll include a list of the SPE papers available for free download from JPT, including the previous and current issues, plus a preview of the technical topics to be highlighted in the next issue.

These downloads from JPT are in addition to the 10 free downloads annually from OnePetro that are included in your membership benefits.

You can also visit the HSE&S discipline page to access a free download of a new featured HSE paper biweekly.

To expand the delivery of content and provide added opportunities for networking and exchange of expertise and knowledge among members with similar technical interests, SPE launched four new technical sections in 2022: the Data Science & Engineering Analytics Technical Section, Hydrogen Technical Section, Management Technical Section, and Methane Emissions Management Technical Section. Check out the full scope of technical sections here.

The SPE Energy Stream was launched in January 2022. It’s your centralized source for live and on-demand video content about innovations, trends, and technical solutions. New content is frequently added. You’ll find a menu on the homepage that sorts content by upcoming live, trending, topic, product, Distinguished Lecturers, and SPE Event Highlights so you can go directly to what interests you. Sign up for the weekly SPE Energy Stream newsletter to catch the latest offerings.

The JPT LinkedIn page, launched in September 2021, now has more than 6,100 followers. You’ll find content from JPT, OGF, HSE Now, DSDE, and TWA posted there.

We wish you a happy holiday with time spent with your families and friends. Enjoy.
