Mission Statement

The purpose of this Association is to advance the science of geology, especially as it relates to petroleum, natural gas, and other energy mineral resources; to promote the technology of exploring for, finding, and producing these materials from the earth; to foster the spirit of scientific research throughout its membership; to disseminate information relating to the geology and the associated technology of petroleum, natural gas, and other energy mineral resources; to inspire and maintain a high standard of professional conduct on the part of its members; to provide the public with means of recognition of adequately trained and professional responsible petroleum geologist; and to advance the professional well being of its members. A strong student program, both graduate and undergraduate is a vital part of the Association. Additionally, student chapters also provide a means of contact with the geological profession both inside and outside of academia. That contact, facilitated through the Student Chapter Program, is of benefit to the AAPG, to the University of Missouri, and to its students.
