                         A BIT OF HISTORY
    An idea of establishing the organization as a
scientific, creative association, which would
integrate the circle of petroleum geologists and
geophysicists, emerged as early as in 1986. The
group was assembling scientists from universities
and industrial research institutes, as well as
explorers from the petroleum industry. The
organisation started its activity in March 1988,
gathering 64 members. At present the Society is
assembling 49 people.
Since its beginning, the President of the Society
has been Professor Wojciech Górecki

A BIT OF HISTORY
SOME OF OUR MEMBERS
                          THE SOCIETY AIMS
1.   Integrating and optimizing activities in the field of prediction, exploration,
     documentation and rational utilization of fossil fuels and renewable
     energy sources, and initiating studies for assessment of their resources;


2.   Improving professional qualification of the Society’s members and
     cultivating the art of cooperation among interdisciplinary research and
     industrial groups;


3.   Supporting the scientific – research work and education in the field of
     prediction, exploration, documentation and rational utilization of fossil
     fuels and renewable energy sources.
       THE SOCIETY AIMS – HOW WE DO IT

To the most important fields of our activity belong
the advisory, consultative and scientific – research
in the framework of the Society’s own work and under
the commission of the national economic units;

During the past years we completed some dozens of
scientific research projects for petroleum industry and
Polish geological survey, collaborating with AGH -
University of Science and Technology (AGH-UST), Polish
Oil and Gas Company (POGC) , Polish Geological
Institute (PGI) and many others.

 Spectrum of our scientific activity is very wide, e.g. we solve problems
from the field of:

PROSPECTION: Analysis of prospecting       GEOCHEMISTRY: Geochemical premises of
and exploration of oil and gas fields in   hydrocarbon occurrence based on analysis of
concession zones of POGC S.A.              sediments in southern Baltic Sea
