John Lee, Professor of Petroleum Engineering and Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished University Chair at the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering, is giving a free webinar tomorrow in partnership with the Society of Petroleum Engineers. The event “Workflow for Applying Simple Models to Forecast Production from Hydraulically Fractured Shale Wells,” already has nearly 400 registrants from around the world.

Lee is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, which cited his work in unconventional resources when inducting him into the group. He has served on two National Research Council committees, one involving nuclear waste storage and anther on helium reserves. And from 2007 to 2008 he served as an Academic Engineering Fellow with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in Washington D.C., where he helped modernize the rules that govern how businesses that raise money in U.S. Securities markets report their oil and gas reserves. This work led to Lee winning the SEC’s Law and Policy Award in 2009. He is also author of three best-selling SPE textbooks and a fourth book just published by the organization.
