The Dhahran Geoscience Society (DGS) is a nonprofit organization based in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. The society was founded in 1987 by a group of enthusiastic geologists who anticipated the need for a platform to share technical ideas and promote professional development within the local oil and gas exploration community. The founders originally named the society the Dhahran Geological Society, but in 1998, DGS became known as the Dhahran Geoscience Society in its transformation to a multidisciplinary organization encompassing geology, geophysics, and related sciences.
The main mission of the Dhahran Geoscience Society is to provide technical and professional development for its members in the domain of exploration for, and development of, petroleum and mineral resources within Saudi Arabia.
The vision of the Dhahran Geoscience Society is to be a globally-recognized professional society that enables regional oil and gas geoscience professionals to share technical knowledge needed to meet the world’s energy needs in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.
