Petroleum Geoscience

Petroleum Geoscience JournalThe international journal of geoenergy and applied Earth science 

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

Chief Editor

Jonathan Redfern, University of Manchester, UK


Petroleum Geoscience transcends disciplinary boundaries and publishes a balanced mix of articles covering exploration, exploitation, appraisal, development and enhancement of sub-surface hydrocarbon resources and carbon repositories. The integration of disciplines in an applied context, whether for fluid production, carbon storage or related geoenergy applications, is a particular strength of the journal. Articles on enhancing exploration efficiency, lowering technological and environmental risk, and improving hydrocarbon recovery communicate the latest developments in sub-surface geoscience to a wide readership.

The journal publishes research and review articles, discussions and replies, thematic collections and the Energy Geoscience Series, an on-going collection providing a channel for the anticipated growth in non-petroleum related aspects of geoenergy and applied earth science.

Petroleum Geoscience is a Plan S compliant journal.
