Since its founding in 1917, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists has been a pillar of the worldwide scientific community. The original purpose of AAPG, to foster scientific research, to advance the science of geology, to promote technology, and to inspire high professional conduct, still guides the Association today.
AAPG provides publications, conferences, and educational opportunities to geoscientists and disseminates the most current geological information available to the general public.
AAPG is a nonprofit corporation recognized by the IRS as an Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(6) organization.
As the world's premier professional association for explorationists, AAPG is about the science of petroleum geology.
It's also about the people.
AAPG's membership is made up of about 40,000 members in 129 countries in the upstream energy industry who collaborate – and compete – to provide the means for humankind to thrive.
AAPG provides the network of communications that allow those professionals to succeed.
We invite you to see who we are, what we are about and to contact us for membership information or details about the many services we provide.
The GESGB was established in 1964 by a group of like-minded professionals keen to create a community of geoscientists for networking and sharing ideas. Over 50 years on, we have a membership of over 4000 individuals, active in six continents.
This member led organisation serves our industry by providing great value, networking and knowledge-sharing events, conferences and workshops as well as a programme which supports the education of earth sciences in the wider community.
Though careers in ‘energy’ are constantly evolving, the GESGB aims to be relevant, useful and beneficial to members at every stage of their careers within the ‘energy’ industry.
