The purpose of the Qatar Geological Society (QGS) is to supply for the technical and skilled development of its members in geology, geophysics, and connected sciences, particularly within the exploration for, and development of, petroleum and mineral resources inside the State of Qatar and neighbouring areas. This may be reached by the Society’s promotions of activities like regular monthly conferences, field journeys, seminars, technical symposia, special comes, publications and social / sport activities. The activities of the Society follow by the rules and regulations of the Nation of Qatar.
What is so attractive about the Qatar Geological Society is that it does not use, directly or indirectly any technical data that might be thought of by any means unfavourable to the concern of Qatar Petroleum or the other Qatari corporation or company. Nevertheless, the methodological and technical perspectives of the Society might not mirror those of Qatar Petroleum or the other business entity or company registered in Qatar.
What distinguishes it from other countries is that membership to the Society is open to all or any earth and petroleum scientists. Membership is additionally open to those pursuing a geologic or connected degree, or whose interests conform to the objectives of the Society. Membership into the Society consists of the subsequent four groups: Honorary Members, student Members, Associate Members and Active Members. The Society is a non-profit organization. Therefore, in the event of dissolution of the society, the Qatar Geological Society can dispatch all funds, remaining when payment of all debts and liabilities, to Qatar Petroleum who can contribute all funds to native charities of their alternative.
