IAGC

IAGC Membership

Our strength is our member companies and their employees who shape the IAGC’s priorities and strategies on issues most important to member companies.

Maurice Nessim

Being a member of the IAGC is invaluable. The IAGC organization is a powerful voice for the geophysical industry, promoting and supporting best practices in environment, health and safety in operations, and increasing the visibility and credibility of the G&E industry with governments and trade associations alike. The Association and its members are shaping and leading the Energy dialogue using credible scientific, technical and legal analysis to engage governments and regulatory bodies and to educate stakeholders about the industry. Companies that invest in IAGC membership demonstrate their commitment to freedom to operate in an environmentally responsible, innovative and competitive geophysical industry.
