Successful 4th Annual ABGS + Golf Outing

The GSP recently successfully hosted the 4th Annual Appalachian Basin Geophysical Symposium (ABGS) in Canonsburg, PA. Over 50 attendees from four states + Canada were able to network and listen to innovative talks on seismic interpretation, processing and well based applications relevant to the Appalachian Basin. All driven by the success of the largest natural gas producing basin in the country. The keynote speaker, past SEG President David Monk, presented a fascinating history of seismic exploration through the lens of AI.


The 11th Annual GSP Golf Open was held the following day as 40 golfers honed their games on a beautiful spring day in Pittsburgh.

The meeting and golf outing were generously supported by 13 industry sponsors.


The GSP Board looks forward to hosting the 5th Annual ABGS in 2024 and encourages you to add the dates June 5-6, 2024 to your calendar.

All the best,

Scott Gorham

GSP President 2022-23
