Geoscience underpins many aspects of the energy mix that fuels our planet and offers a range of solutions for reducing global greenhouse gas emissions as the world progresses towards net zero. The aim of this new Energy Geoscience Conference series is to explore and develop the contribution of geology and geophysics to the low-carbon energy transition. The meeting will be a key forum for sharing geoscientific aspects of energy supply as earth scientists grapple with the subsurface challenges of remaking the world’s energy system, balancing competing demands in achieving a low carbon future.

Aberdeen has a world-leading role in the energy sector and vision to position itself as a climate positive city helping to lead the world towards net zero. It is the standout UK location to launch the first conference in this exciting new series: the Energy Geoscience Conference, EGC1 in 2023.

Visit the dedicated conference website to find out more.


Abstracts are invited across the breadth of energy-related geosciences. Sessions will reflect discipline and theme related topics including oil & gas, geothermal, subsurface energy storage, subsurface waste disposal and the subsurface aspects of renewable energy. Submissions are particularly welcomed that facilitate two-way learning and show the applicability of data, techniques and workflows across the full spectrum of energy transition applications. 

In person and virtual contributions from the UK, Northwest Europe and worldwide are sought by the convenors. 

Abstract submission deadline: 30 June 2022

Note - following formal acceptance by the convenors of offered talks and posters, all speakers and poster authors will be given a chance to refresh their abstracts in late 2022
