The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) has teamed with Application Service Provision (ASP) specialist Petris Technology to provide applications to SPE members through its website www.spe.org. The new ‘E&P Toolbox’ service will be available from May 19 and will provide SPE members with access to applications from vendors such as Edinburgh Petroleum Services, TH Hill, Texas Computer Works and others.
SPE president Andrew Young said, “SPE is pleased to add the E&P Toolbox to spe.org, our members’ knowledge portal. This addition expands the resources available to our members and gives them tools they need to tackle the many challenges of producing oil and gas.”
Petris CEO Jim Pritchett added, “This collaboration is an indicator that the time for an industry-specific, vendor-neutral ASP service is here. More and more software vendors will be attracted to the concept and that will generate more synergy and, in turn, more clients. Costs will be lowered and service levels will benefit.”
