Dear Petroleum/Geosciences Department Heads:

I am a Past-President of the Society of Petroleum Evaluation Engineers (SPEE) and Department Chair at Texas Tech University Bob L. Herd Department of Petroleum Engineering. For some time now I have looked to improve material used in our Property Evaluation/Senior Design Course and have suggested to the SPEE board that we endeavor to supply information to University Petroleum Departments about SPEE. Members of the SPEE Board of Directors decided to make one copy of each publication available to University Petroleum Engineering/Geosciences Departments, free of cost.

The five current publications are:

  • Survey of Economic Parameters Used in Property Evaluations
  • Monograph 4, “Estimating Ultimate Recovery of Developed Wells in Low-Permeability Reservoirs”
  • Monograph 3, “Guidelines for the Practical Evaluation of Undeveloped Reserves in Resource Plays”
  • Monograph 2, "Perspectives on The Fair Market Value of Oil and Gas Interests" (two hard copies)
  • Monograph 1, “Guidelines for Application of the Definitions for Oil and Gas Reserves”

Several SPEE resources are available to the public – free of charge – off our web site, such as:

The Recommended Evaluation Practices (REPs)
An Ethics Monograph
COPAS information
World, U.S. and Canadian Reserve definitions

I have used these SPEE resources extensively at Texas Tech as a teaching resource for the Property Evaluation class.

If you wish to receive the above publications, please email or fax me a completed “University Data Agreement”. which can be downloaded below.
