A professor with the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering has been honored by an international petroleum engineering association for his service to the group and to the industry as a whole.

John Lee, Professor and Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished University Chair in the college’s Petroleum Engineering Program, received the Distinguished Service Award from the Society of Petroleum Evaluation Engineers (SPEE).

The award was presented last month at the group’s annual meeting in Colorado Springs, Colo. The official citation recognized Lee for his “significant contributions to the petroleum industry and to the practice of petroleum evaluation engineering.”

Lee, a member of the National Academy of Engineering, joined the SPEE just three years ago. In the short time since, he has established himself as one of its most respected members. He given presentations to five local SPEE chapters and taught a half-day course at the society’s same annual meeting where he received the award. He also has accepted a request to write a chapter on petroleum production forecasting for unconventional resources for a new monograph being produced by SPEE. Lee noted that to provide his audiences with his latest thinking he regularly updates these presentations to include results from his most recent research at UH.

“I have really enjoyed sharing my knowledge and experience with SPEE members over the past few years and am honored that the organization has recognized my efforts with this award” said Lee.
