American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA), Dhahran Geoscience Society (DGS), Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) are pleased to announce the 2022 International Geomechanics Symposium, to be held on Nov 7-10 in UAE. This symposium is also endorsed by American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA), European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) and Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
The symposium will be an in-person meeting, not hybrid. However, we realize certain presenters will have ongoing travel restrictions due to the pandemic. For this reason, IGS will provide an independent virtual delivery platform to accommodate these presenters.
This multi-society, multi-discipline, multi-industry event will focus on the role of geomechanics in energy efficiency and sustainability. The symposium will kick off with a legacy training program, “Rock with Fellows,” taught by three key speakers: Mark Zoback (Stanford University), Herbert Einstein (MIT), and John McLennan (University of Utah). It will play host to over 180 presentations in 15 technical sessions and 9 poster sessions. IGS expects more than 200 technical attendees from more than 35 countries spanning six continents. This symposium is a global geomechanics summit for more than 70 of the world’s leading NOCs, IOCs, service companies, and universities. Focusing on the role of geomechanics in energy efficiency and sustainability, the technical program will cover a wide range of geomechanics topics, from rock, in-situ stress, natural fractures, faults, drilling, completion, stimulation, production, and reservoir engineering, and showcase geomechanics applications in CO2 sequestration, hydrogen storage, and new energies.
