The European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) is a multi-disciplinary professional association for geoscientists and engineers. It was founded in 1951 and has a worldwide membership.[1] The association changed name from European Association of Exploration Geophysicists in 1995.[2] The association is intended for persons that are studying or otherwise professionally involved in geophysics, petroleum exploration, geology, reservoir engineering, mining, and civil engineering. EAGE operates two divisions: the Oil & Gas Geoscience Division and the Near Surface Geoscience Division.[3] The head office of EAGE is located in the Netherlands, with regional offices in Moscow, Dubai, and Kuala Lumpur.


The main activities of EAGE are:

  • The organisation of conferences, exhibitions, and workshops
  • Publications (journals, books)
  • Educational Programmes (short courses, lectures)
  • Student Programmes
  • Recruitment


Every year, EAGE organizes a large number of conferences, exhibitions and lecture tours for geoscience engineers and professionals. The largest of these events is the EAGE Annual Conference and Exhibition, attracting almost 6,000 visitors from all over the world. Throughout the year, many different and more informal workshops are scheduled on various topics such as: Passive Seismic, Tar Mats, Tight Gas, Borehole Geophyics, Land Seismic, CO2 storage, and more.[4]


EAGE's flagship magazine is First Break. In addition, EAGE publishes four scientific journals: Geophysical Prospecting, Near Surface Geophysics, Petroleum Geoscience, and Basin Research. EAGE also publishes several books per year.
