Current Issue: March 2017

This is our Annual Convention issue – but not just any Annual Convention issue: it’s all about our big 100th Anniversary Annual Convention and Exhibition (ACE) coming up in Houston.

It includes a piece chronicling the birth of AAPG in Tulsa a century ago, as well as a continuation of our “The Next 100 Years” series, this time with a look at the work force in the oil field in the aftermath of the Great Crew Change.

We also take a look at the ongoing proliferation of drones in the oil field, a piece about so-called “flood geology” promoted by Young Earth Creationists, and profiles on Larry Meckel and Edward D. Dolly, this year’s Sidney Powers and Michel T. Halbouty medalists, respectively.

We also provide a glimpse at this year’s record-breaking ACE technical program and other offerings in Houston, along with all of our regular columns.

The AAPG EXPLORER is the monthly tabloid magazine of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists that covers news of interest to the AAPG membership. Contents include coverage of the entire span of energy interest, with emphasis on exploration for hydrocarbons and energy minerals. Breaking news stories, features, profiles of personalities, comment columns and Association information is included.

The AAPG EXPLORER is read by more than 42,000 members and friends of the Association in 129 countries.
