2022 International Geomechanics Symposium

7-9 November 2022, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

The American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA), Dhahran Geoscience Society (DGS), and Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) are pleased to announce the 2022 International Geomechanics Symposium, to be held on 7-9 November in UAE. This symposium is also endorsed by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA). The multi-society, multi-discipline, multi-industry event will focus on the role of geomechanics in energy efficiency and sustainability. The symposium will kick off with a legacy training program, “Rock with Fellows”, taught by three key speakers: Mark Zoback (Stanford University), Herbert Einstein (MIT), and John McLennan (University of Utah). The technical program will cover a wide range of geomechanics topics, from rock, in-situ stress, pore pressure, natural fractures, faults, and tectonics to drilling, completion, stimulation, production, and reservoir engineering, and will showcase geomechanics applications in CO2 sequestration, hydrogen storage, geothermal, and new energies. The summit will be an international festival for all rock jockeys from operators, technology developers, service providers, researchers, and students.
