Petroleum Geoscience

Petroleum Geoscience is a co-owned journal of the Geological Society of London and the European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers (EAGE). 

Petroleum Geoscience Journal

The editor-in-chief Phil Christie (Schlumberger Gould Research, Cambridge, UK) is supported by experienced co-editors and an editorial board of specialists covering all the rock-related petroleum disciplines.

Petroleum Geoscience (PG) is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal for those involved in the science and technology associated with the rock-related, sub-surface disciplines. The international readership includes geologists, geophysicists, petroleum and reservoir engineers, petrophysicists and geochemists in both academic and professional worlds.

Petroleum Geoscience crosses disciplinary boundaries and publishes a balanced mix of articles covering exploration, exploitation, appraisal and development of hydrocarbon resources and carbon sinks. PG highlights technical integration in an applied context, for optimisation of both fluid production and carbon sequestration. Articles on enhancing exploration efficiency, lowering technological and environmental risk, and improving hydrocarbon recovery present the benefits of the latest developments to a wide readership.

Norman Falcon Award
