Educational Support


The Education Support Committee (ESC) is one of the main portfolios of the SPE Calgary Section board and is composed of one board director and four hard working deputy directors! The ESC was formed in 2014 as part of an initiative to focus efforts specifically on programs that support the advancement of SPE’s mission and goals in the academic community, reach out to the K-12 student demographic, and able SPE members to become informed on key topics surrounding oil and gas development.

The ESC committee only supports SPE student chapters that are sponsored by the SPE Calgary Section, and these include: University of Calgary, University of Toronto, University of Western Ontario, McGill University and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology.

If you have questions about the ESC or are seeking more information on our programs, or ways to get involved as a volunteer please don’t hesitate to contact us through the SPE Canada office by reaching out to Steven Avery at
