Exchange geomechanics experience and know-how among technology developers, providers, and practitioners

American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA), Dhahran Geoscience Society (DGS), Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA), China Society of Rock Mechanics and Engineering (CSRME), Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME), European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), and Academic Partner, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) are pleased to announce the 2023 International Geomechanics Symposium, to be held from 30 October – 2 November, 2023 in Al Khobar, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

This year, the multi-society multi-discipline multi-industry event will focus on the role of Geomechanics for Efficient and Sustainable Energy Supply. The symposium will kick off with a legacy training program, “Rock with Fellows”, offered by Priscilla Nelson on Mining (Colorado School of Mines), Maurice Dusseault on Energy Storage (University of Waterloo), and John McLennan on Geothermal (University of Utah), as well as a keynote by Mark Zoback on Unconventional Resources (Stanford University). 

IGS will host 205 presentations in 53 technical sessions with more than 300 attendees from over 35 countries in 6 continents. This symposium is a global geomechanics summit for more than 140 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 CO2 sequestration, hydrogen, mining, geothermal to applications in petroleum exploration, drilling, completion, hydraulic fracturing, production, and reservoir engineering.

We’re thrilled to introduce a groundbreaking collaboration that’s set to redefine the landscape of geomechanics research and innovation – the International Geomechanics Synergy (IGS)!

This initiative brings together leading societies, experts, and thought leaders from around the globe for collaborative synergy in the field of geomechanics. By uniting under the banner of the IGS, we aim to amplify our collective impact, foster interdisciplinary connections, and drive transformative advancements in geomechanics research, practice, and education.

Through this collaborative endeavor, what was formerly known as the International Geomechanics Symposium is now evolving into the International Geomechanics Conference!

IGS2024 takes center stage, continuing to be the epicenter for geomechanics excellence! Hosted by PETRONAS, & Organizers – American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA), Dhahran Geoscience Society (DGS), and Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), with partner societies, Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA), China Society of Rock Mechanics and Engineering (CSRME), European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), and the Society for Rock Mechanics & Engineering Geology (SRMEG).

Showcasing the Role of Geomechanics for Sustainability and Energy Efficiency, the conference will provide a top tier platform to exchange geomechanics knowledge and experience, to connect global expertise and know-how with regional challenges, and to provide world-class training to young professionals and students. The technical program will cover a wide range of geomechanics applications in energy storage, CO2 sequestration, petroleum, mining, geothermal, geotechnics, and environmental, present latest know-hows in rock characterization, in-situ stress, pore pressure, natural fractures, faults, tectonics, rock testing, geomechanics measurements, drilling, completions, stimulation, production, reservoir engineering, artificial intelligence, and data analytics.

Following the successful conclusion of IGS2023, hosted by Saudi Aramco, we are thrilled to announce that the International Geomechanics event is heading further east, to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 18 to 20 November, 2024. IGS2024 takes center stage, continuing to be the epicenter for geomechanics excellence! Hosted by Petronas, & Organizers – American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA), Dhahran Geoscience Society (DGS), and Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), with partner societies, Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA), China Society of Rock Mechanics and Engineering (CSRME), and European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE).
