Aims and scope

Petroleum Geoscience transcends disciplinary boundaries and publishes a balanced mix of articles covering exploration, exploitation, appraisal and development of hydrocarbon resources. Articles range from exploration geology, geophysics, geochemistry and petrophysics to reservoir geology and reservoir engineering. Petroleum Geoscience highlights the optimization of resources and maximization of quality and profit through the application of technology. Articles on improving exploration hit rates, lowering technological risk and improving hydrocarbon recovery enable this journal to bring the benefits of the latest developments to its wide readership.

Published by both The Geological Society of London and EAGE, Petroleum Geoscience is a refereed journal providing a multidisciplinary outlet for the publication needs of those involved in the science and technology associated with rock-related petroleum disciplines. The journal has a circulation of approximately 6000 and includes in its readership geologists, geophysicists, petroleum engineers, petrophysicists and geochemists in the academic and professional worlds. The journal aims to improve knowledge of petroleum geoscience and reflect the international nature of the petroleum industry.
