The AAPG Petroleum Structure and Geomechanics Division is the newest division of the AAPG. Its goal is:
- to increase the quantity and quality of specialty conferences, publications, and educational outreach for the petroleum structure and geomechanics disciplines within the AAPG,
- to provide greater discipline-specific assistance to local organizing groups, and
- to better serve an important interest community within the general AAPG membership.
Driven by keen interest in geomechanics and supported by an established foundation in structural geology and tectonics, the amalgamated discipline of geomechanics and petroleum structural geology is one of the fastest growing disciplines in petroleum geoscience. Evidence of the growing importance of this technical area includes rapid growth of technical teams on these topics within companies, the increasing importance of deep and or geomechanically complex targets (including unconventionals and subsalt), and the proliferation of papers and specialty meetings on petroleum structural geology and geomechanics.
There is no dues structure for this group.
