2023 International Geomechanics Symposium

30 October – 2 November 2023, Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia

The American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA), Dhahran Geoscience Society (DGS), Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), China Society of Rock Mechanics and Engineering (CSRME), Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), and Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA) are pleased to announce the 2023 International Geomechanics Symposium, to be held from 30 October to 2 November, 2023 in Al Khobar, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

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). The technical program will cover a wide range of geomechanics applications in petroleum, mining, geothermal, energy storage, and CO2 sequestration, and will present latest know-hows in rock, in-situ stress, pore pressure, natural fractures, faults, tectonics, rock testing, geomechanics measurements, drilling, completion, stimulation, production, reservoir engineering, CCUS, hydrogen storage, geothermal, and new energies.
