Research and Development Needs in the 21st Century (PDF)
Focused research and development can make a significant contribution to sustaining the domestic petroleum industry.
While a global market establishes the price of crude oil, the costs of exploration, development, and production are influenced strongly by the application of new science and technology.
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.
