American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

What we’re all about

We are the University of Leeds' Student Chapter of the AAPG (American Association of Petroleum Geologists). The AAPG is a global organisation for petroleum geoscience with student chapters in universities across the globe. Our members are mostly geologists and geophysicists, but we're open to anyone interested from any discipline. We organise visiting speaker seminars, field trips and careers events.


We aim to have two research/industry speaker events every month on Monday evenings in the School of Earth and Environment. These are often based around cutting edge research, industry events or industry or research careers with speakers from around the globe. If you have any suggestions for speakers - let us know.


Typically most speaker seminar events are followed by a social event.


Membership of the AAPG Chapter has always been and will continue to be free. By becoming a member of the chapter you also get free sponsored membership of the global AAPG organisation, allowing you discounted attendance to AAPG conferences and access to AAPG resources.
