Author: Abdulaziz K. Alsufayan, Chairman SPE-KSA (2019-21)


A two-year term has come to an end. Earlier in our term and as we were taking-off with our ambitious plans, we were hit with a global challenge, a pandemic that halted all in-person activities, if not most of the activities world-wide. But that did not stop a resilient team like the one SPE-KSA has. We have successfully steered our way across all storms overcoming all challenges. Our prompt adaptation and timely transformation of our activities were valuable and have paid off, yielding to results beyond expectations.


SPE-KSA has been blessed for many years with teams who are committed and dedicated to maintaining its leading position as a recognized technical and professional platform in the Energy Industry. Thus, regardless of all hindrances, SPE-KSA has always been able to thrive through groundbreaking initiatives and activities that are in the interest and benefit of its members and volunteers. This is mainly because SPE-KSA nurtures an environment that draws in many brilliant, dedicated, and innovative volunteers.

At this phase and as we are concluding our term, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to our valuable volunteers and members, who were our partners in the growth that we have achieved during the past term. I would also like to sincerely thank the SPE-KSA Executive Board members who augmented a wide range of skills and amplified cultural insights towards the success of this term. My final appreciation words go to our inspiration and support, the SPE-KSA Board of Directors.

I conclude by congratulating the new Executive Board and wishing them all the best in their upcoming term. I am confident that they will add tremendously to SPE-KSA and will continue to uphold the society’s high standards and the upward trend of our activities and development.
