The Permian Basin Section – Society for Sedimentary Geology, formerly known as the Society of Economic Paleontologist & Mineralogists, has been serving the Permian Basin since 1954. Our organization supports the Permian Basin region geoscientists by providing continuing education through monthly luncheon lectures, distinguished lecture series event, publications, core workshops and geologic field trips.


The PBS-SEPM brings in academic and industry specific speakers from all over the country to present diverse geological topics and technological advancements. Our core workshop classes, and geologic field trips are led by industry professionals in their chosen areas of geosciences expertise.


The PBS-SEPM strives to provide academic scholarships to graduating high school students, located in western Texas and New Mexico region, who express a desire to pursue a degree in the geosciences field. Scholarships on occasion, are awarded to college students that have declared to pursue a geoscience-based degree.  Scholarships are made possible by donations made to the Wendell J. Stewart Scholarship and Sue T. Reid Scholarship Funds, respectively.

See the Scholarships page for more information.
