Join the Petroleum Community on GeoNet 

This week at PUG, we invite you to join the new Petroleum  space GeoNet and utilize it as a resource to expand your GIS knowledge, discover user success stories, ask questions and get answers, share your work, and connect with other Esri customers and partners in the Petroleum industry. GeoNet is Esri’s online community where more than 258,000 Esri users (customers, distributors, partner and staff) are connecting to work better, share ideas and find valuable solutions.
Get started on GeoNet
To join GeoNet for the first time, follow these steps and then come back to the Petroleum space to join the conversation and get updates from the PUG conference. If you already have a GeoNet account, you can login and go directly to the Petroleum space. 
Next steps 
  • We also encourage you to visit the GeoNet Resource Hub for tips and tools to assist you on your journey.
    • If you have any questions or issues, please contact the GeoNet Community team at geonet@esri.com.
  • Visit the Community area in the Expo during the week to get help and learn more about GeoNet. 
  • Attend the GeoNet workshop on Thursday 12:15-12:45 in Esri Demo Theater. 

With grateful thanks to the whole PUG community for working so hard to pull this year's Conference together, and especially those that will share their work for the positive benefit of others.

Great first day of the conference!

My only disappointment was a lack of racial/gender diversity in this year's plenary. The petroleum industry has a wide array of users, and it would be wonderful if that could be reflected in the opening speakers!
