Newest page addition
There are various facets to well integrity, including accountability/responsibility, well operating processes, well service processes, tubing/annulus integrity, tree/wellhead integrity, and testing of safety systems.
SPE Web Events topics have been matched with topic pages in PetroWiki. Users now have added resources as they are doing research in PetroWiki. In addition, this spring, page champions were asked to help enhance content within PetroWiki by adding noteworthy papers from OnePetro to the appropriate pages in PetroWiki. The turnout was amazing; over the subsequent few months, more than 109 pages were enhanced with links to papers from OnePetro. The continuation of interconnecting existing resources like these and other valuable resources will enhance the reliability and convenience of this industry resource.

2014 Outstanding student chapters
The SPE Board has approved the implementation of a student trial period that will offer the 2014 outstanding student chapters the opportunity to enhance PetroWiki. Up until this decision, only SPE professional members were allowed to edit. This privilege is only being offered to 3,000 students internationally. These select students have received their full permissions and have begun to add valuable content to PetroWiki.
As new topic pages are created within PetroWiki, the need for additional page champions will be ongoing. See the full list of opportunities. Contact email@example.com to sign up as a page champion for one of these pages or offer assistance in another area of interest. Remember: You can contribute to any topic page, whether or not you have signed up for it.
Power up your generation
PetroWiki’s purpose is, like SPE’s, to:
Collect, disseminate, and exchange technical knowledge concerning the exploration, development and production of oil and gas resources, and related technologies for the public benefit.
We invite SPE members to become involved in PetroWiki. You can become involved by editing the content within existing topic pages or adding new topics. Feel free to email us at PetroWiki@spe.org with feedback or assistance. (See our edit rights page for more information on obtaining edit permissions.)
New and short pages
Below, you can find current lists of new and short pages that need further content added and accuracy checked by experts.The following topic pages need help from topic experts. These pages might simply need to be edited for accuracy, expanded upon, or have content added because the page is empty or is not representing the full scope of the subject.
- Relative permeability in shale gas
- ESP centrifugal pump
- Facility operability
- Gas condensate properties
Approve or reject
Generally, new pages are created prior to matching the page with a subject page champion. These newly created pages need subject experts to help verify that the content is of a professional standard. We need page champions and other topic experts to take a moment to look over the most recent list of newly created topic pages and verify that the content is correct. A complete listing of pages and instructions are included at: New topic page list
Content guide and worksheet
A new guide has been developed to help with the process of creating quality topic pages. With this guide, and the accompanying worksheet, at your fingertips, creating a topic page has just become that much easier, not to mention quicker. To get the worksheet in a Word document, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting the “PetroWiki Content Guide Worksheet.”
