In 1997, led by Steve Laubach, the AAPG Reservoir Deformation Research Group (RDRG) was established at the AAPG Dallas convention as an informal technical interest group. The following year the RDRG was designated a standing sub-committee of the Research Committee. Yearly the RDRG met on Tuesday evenings at the Annual Conference and Exhibition (ACE) for a short social gathering of scientists and practitioners with interests in structure, mechanics, fluid flow, and their interfaces with engineering, rock mechanics, and geophysics.

The group meetings provided an informal setting that promoted discussion and interaction between academic and industry researchers on structural geology and related exploration and development issues. In 2013, in cooperation with the AAPG Research Committee and the AAPG Executive Committee, the Petroleum Structure and Geomechanics Division (PSGD) formed as a collaborative association with the AAPG of individuals in the discipline areas of structural geology and reservoir geomechanics.

Following are the reports from these meetings.
