(Charlottesville, VA and Richardson, TX) November 14, 2019 Silverchair announced today a partnership with the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) to host their multi-publisher online library, OnePetro®.

For more than 60 years, the Society of Petroleum Engineers has set the standard for collecting technical knowledge about the exploration, development, and production of oil and gas resources, while also effectively disseminating this information to industry professionals around the world.

In 2007, SPE launched OnePetro – a revolutionary multi-publisher online library containing a wealth of technical content on the oil and gas industry. By providing easy access to over 230,000 documents from 21 reputable publishing partners, OnePetro has established itself as the premier research resource within the oil and gas industry.

SPE remains committed to an exceptional user experience that helps members, companies, and institutions to access essential technical information quickly. The evolution of OnePetro is ongoing, and SPE frequently takes advantage of a dynamic range of tools to ensure that customers find the information they need.

For the next advancement of the OnePetro platform, SPE sought a partner with strong knowledge of the research and discoverability needs for both academic and corporate institutions, and a clear digital strategy to ensure OnePetro continues to meet the ever-changing needs of researchers, scientists, engineers, and students.

“We’re excited to have SPE join the growing community of premier society publishers using our platform,” said Jake Zarnegar, Silverchair’s Chief Business Development Officer. “Enabling non-profit associations such as SPE to disseminate their high-impact content in a dynamic and effective manner is at the heart of Silverchair’s mission.”

"SPE is pleased to partner with Silverchair to ensure that OnePetro not only keeps pace with current publishing enhancements and the expectations of our users but pushes the boundaries of what OnePetro can become," notes Rebekah Stacha, SPE's Assistant Director, Technical Publications. "After thoroughly reviewing our options, it was clear to our entire SPE team that Silverchair was the right partner for OnePetro, both now and into the future."
