Research and Development Needs in the 21st Century (PDF)


Focused research and development can make a significant contribution to sustaining the domestic petroleum industry.

AAPG recognizes the importance of maintaining a strong domestic petroleum industry and supports the need for a continuing effort in research and development to aid in sustaining its economic viability.
