SPE Members: Accessing your SPE member pricing on OnePetro

OnePetro is a separate website from the SPE website but we have now enabled the ability to use your SPE login to obtain SPE member pricing on OnePetro. There is no longer a need to keep track of multiple logins.

To ensure member pricing on OnePetro, members MUST use their current SPE login.  If you have forgotten your password, please visit the SPE website to reset it.

New Users:  New registration on OnePetro.

We are recommending that all visitors register on their first visit to the NEW OnePetro.org website.   Why?  Registered users will be able to rate papers, save searches, bookmark content of interest, and view purchased download history.

1.     Click on the “register to purchase instant access” link in the upper right hand corner of the OnePetro homepage.  While this says it is for instant access, it will also apply for all non-IP validated subscriptions.

How do I validate my institution’s domain address so that I can use our subscription? 

Once you have registered and have a My OnePetro account, just click on My Account.

Next, click on Go under Domain Validation.  Then select Validate Me.  You will receive an email from OnePetro and will need to confirm receipt by clicking on a link.  The process is very quick and easy.  

My IP Address validation doesn’t seem to be working.

To receive IP address validation, your IP address must be one of the “approved” addresses provided by your institution.  Are you on a device that has access to your institution’s network?   If not, that may be why are not getting access to the subscription. You will know that you currently have access as you should see the message at the top of any OnePetro webpage "via and your institution's name."  The easiest way to obtain your IP address is to visit, whatismyip.com.  Ensure your IP address is one of the approved IP addresses with your institution’s subscription administrator.
