Dear Colleagues and Supporters of SPE,

The Pittsburgh Section of the Society of Petroleum Engineers is thrilled to announce that we'll be hosting the 2024 SPE Eastern Regional Meeting at the beautiful Oglebay Resort in Wheeling, West Virginia, from October 8th to 10th, 2024. Oglebay Resort provides the perfect backdrop for our gathering.

We truly appreciate your ongoing support and consideration in choosing which conferences to sponsor and attend. Your backing of this conference means a great deal to us, as it directly supports scholarships for student chapters of the five sister SPE sections in Appalachia. Over the past two years alone, the Pittsburgh section has proudly awarded over $60,000 to Petroleum Engineering students at Pennsylvania State University, Slippery Rock University, and St. Francis University. The other sections utilize their portion of the proceeds to fund scholarships at Marietta College and West Virginia University. With your continued support, we aim to maintain, if not increase, these contributions in the years ahead.

Our team is eager to welcome you to this year's meeting, where we've crafted a program that combines the traditional technical sessions and keynote addresses with engaging networking opportunities. Plus, we're adding an exciting new element—such as concentration specific round tables, operator “tech presentations” and an in-depth panel discussion featuring key industry leaders. We believe this blend of activities, set amidst the best-in-class amenities of Oglebay Resort, will offer a valuable learning experience for both first-time attendees and longtime supporters alike.

As a sponsor, you'll enjoy extensive exposure, starting from the moment you sign on and extending well beyond the event's conclusion. We'll showcase our gratitude and highlight our sponsoring partners through our basin-wide section meetings, event website, social media channels, and on-site advertisements. Throughout the meeting, your company will be prominently featured in the registration area, exhibit halls, social outings, keynote luncheon, and closing remarks. Our program committee is committed to working closely with sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees to continuously refine the conference program and meet your expectations. We're here to support any sponsorship opportunities you or your organization may need to participate fully.

Thank you for your unwavering support and interest in SPE. Together, let's plan and host a memorable meeting that underscores the resilience of our industry and its vital role in delivering affordable, reliable, and abundant energy for people worldwide.

We can't wait to welcome you to Oglebay in October!

Warm regards,

Kimberly Ayers

Pittsburgh Section Chair & ERM Conference Chair
