Editorial Notes

We hope you enjoy this issue of SPE Res Eval & Eng. SPE is also finalizing production of its other May/June peer-reviewed journal issues. This month SPE Prod & Oper will offer papers on the topics of hydraulic fracturing and water production and injection. In June, SPE J. will offer papers on a variety of topics including flow assurance, geomechanics, and shale, and SPE Drill & Compl is building an issue that will include insightful and practical papers you may find useful in your own designs and programs.

SPE editorial staff would again like to welcome Dr. Turhan Yildiz to the journal and congratulate him on completing his first issue. Dr. Yildiz is a principal reservoir engineering advisor for Red Rocks Engineering in Littleton, Colorado. He has 30 years of experience in reservoir/production engineering; 13 years in the industry and 17 years in academic institutions. Currently, he focuses on the interpretation of the closed-chamber tests in shale gas reservoirs, the rate transient analysis for discrete fractured shale formations, interpretation of pressure-decay tests run on shale cuttings and plugs, and measurement of relative permeabilities in unconventional rocks. Yildiz holds a BS degree from Istanbul Technical University and MS and PhD degrees from Louisiana State University. He has served on the SPE Editorial Committee and the SPE Reservoir Descriptions and Dynamics Advisory Committee.

Commitment to Authors

SPE’s journals boast rapid peer review, sustaining a 29-day time-to-first decision average since November 2019.

Over the next few weeks, we will roll out a variety of author resources, including submission checklists, manuscript templates (Word or LaTeX), language editing and figure preparation services, and more. Stay tuned!
