About Gulf Petrolink and Dr. M. Al-Husseini

Dr. M. Al-Husseini joined Saudi Aramco in 1976 after completing his PhD in Earth Science at Brown University in 1975 and a one-year Research Fellowship at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

In 1992 he left Saudi Aramco, where he was the Exploration Manager, and founded Bahrain-based Gulf PetroLink (GPL) in order to promote petroleum geoscience and technology exchange across the Middle East.

In 1994 GPL took on its first publishing challenge: the 2-volume, 840 page Proceedings of GEO 1994, the first Middle East Geoscience Conference. GPL launched GeoArabia at the GEO 1996 Conference and organized the biennial GEO 2000, 2002 and 2004 conferences.

Between 1996 and 2015 GeoArabia published nearly 350 peer-reviewed articles, many 100s of GEO conference abstracts as well as several special publications.

Since 2016 GPL has developed new interpretation techniques in orbital-tuning of stratigraphy recently published in September 2018 as Chapter 5: Arabian Orbital Sequences (Volume 3 of Stratigraphy and Timescales edited by Dr. Michael Montenari).
