Plagarism Check

We expect authors to credit all sources used in their writings and not to represent work of others as their own. Authors found to have plagiarised the work of another are subject to having their paper removed from the conference program and from OnePetro. Future submissions from authors found to have plagiarised will be scrutinized carefully. In the case of students found to be plagiarising the work of others, SPE may inform the student’s university.

In an effort to further improve SPE’s technical quality standards, all submitted conference papers will be checked for plagiarism.

Note to authors
An agreement to present a paper at this SPE conference carries an obligation to participate in the event.

  • The conference is important to our region as it is a key enabler for us to open many opportunities of oil and gas, similar to what we have seen in U.S.A and North America. The change of technology, innovation and improvement open up a lot on non-commercial volumes in the U.S, and that was a big motivation to say how can we bring that technology to the Middle East.
