Despite the current industry challenges, the first part of this series of co-presented events the AAPG | SEG 2015 International Conference and Exhibition in Melbourne, Australia was technical and networking success. Attracting 1,386 of the world's best and brightest geologists, geophysicists and engineers from students and young professionals to the most seasoned industry experts and senior management representing 39 countries.
