Title: Oil and Gas Development in Rocky Mountain Basins and Its Relation to Past and Future Growth of Rocky Mountain Section of American Association of Petroleum Geologists: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Paul H. Umbach

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The sedimentary basins of the Rocky Mountain region are in their initial stage of development with construction of pipeline outlets, increased exploration, drilling, and development. This increase will require more geologists, consequently a larger attendance can be expected at conventions. Increased attendance has been reflected in the past conventions of the Rocky Mountain Section which started in Denver in 1951 with 700 and at Salt Lake City in 1952 with 1,200 and at Casper in 1953 with 1,500. The convention at Casper proved that small towns can accommodate a relatively large convention. Albuquerque, with widely scattered members from Durango, Farmington and Roswell serving as chairmen of committees, has proved that future conventions, if necessary can be held in Denve or other large cities without requiring local members to serve as chairmen of committees.
