• Support for Bucharest, Ploiesti and Iasi SPE Student Chapters activities;
• Connect Local and International Experts from Oil & Gas Industry with the young professionals;
• Promote, support and participate in charitable, education, humanitarian and social community services at the Section and Student Chapter’s level, with the new SPE International Initiative SPE Cares;
• Support young professional career by assisting in, and developing their personal and professional skills.
• Provide professional, personal and networking development opportunities to young professionals so they may challenge and lead the industry in a culture of mentorship.

Today is the best moment to acknowledge that Oil Industry is a continuous changing environment and the only way to face these challenges is by involvement and courage.
