PetroWiki was created from the seven volume&nbsp;[http://store.spe.org/Petroleum-Engineering-Handbook-Volumes-I-VII-Print-Set-P126.aspx Petroleum Engineering Handbook (PEH)]&nbsp;published by the&nbsp;[http://www.spe.org/ Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE)]. PetroWiki preserves the PEH content in unaltered form (page names that start with PEH:), while allowing SPE's membership to update and expand content from the published version. Pages that do not have PEH: at the beginning may have started with content from the PEH, but have been modified over time by contributors to the wiki.
 
 
 
Content in PetroWiki is&nbsp;[http://petrowiki.org/Special:Moderation moderated]&nbsp;by at least two members with subject matter expertise. This helps to ensure that the information found in PetroWiki is technically accurate.&nbsp;[http://petrowiki.org/PetroWiki:Disclaimer Disclaimer]

Content categorization - SPE has finalized a technical taxonomy that is being used in PetroWiki, OnePetro, and other SPE content.

What is PetroWiki?

PetroWiki was created from the seven volume Petroleum Engineering Handbook (PEH) published by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). PetroWiki preserves the PEH content in unaltered form (page names that start with PEH:), while allowing SPE's membership to update and expand content from the published version. Pages that do not have PEH: at the beginning may have started with content from the PEH, but have been modified over time by contributors to the wiki. Disclaimer

Unlike some other online wikis, PetroWiki content is copyright SPE. For information about using content from PetroWiki, see PetroWiki:Permissions.
