As the world around us is changing with the Energy Transition, our knowledge and skills have become increasingly relevant to applications outside of the traditional hydrocarbon E&P industry. The PGK has been changing with the times, diversifying the topics of its activities to include, for example, geothermal energy, CCS, and subsurface storage. We would like the name of our circle to better reflect that it represents more than petroleum geoscience alone and welcomes reservoir G&G in the widest possible sense. After all, it is the first thing that potential new members, sponsors, and others see of our professional network.
We hereby invite members to come up with a fitting new name for our society. You have until 31 October to submit your best ideas. Shortly after that, the PGK board will present a shortlist of names that all members can vote on. The winning name and its inventor will be announced and awarded at the AGM in February 2021.
