The primary mission of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is to disseminate petroleum engineering technology. One of the most important sources of petroleum engineering technology is the extensive inventory (over 30,000) of SPE technical papers. In October 1991 the SPE Board authorized the Ad Hoc Electronic Publishing Committee (EPC) to explore how electronic publishing technologies might help the SPE promote the dissemination of petroleum engineering technology. The purpose of this paper is to update members on the progress of the SPE Electronic Publishing Committee, current projects and initiatives, vision for the future, and to encourage member support.
