Wellsite Geology

Code Date Venue Fee ($)

About the course

A large amount of geological data is acquired at a substantial cost during a drilling operation. Ensuring optimal quality of this information and effective reporting plays a key role during well design, drilling operations as well as at the later us of the data in field studies. A key requirement for success is a close cooperation between geological, drilling, and well engineering departments.

You will learn

  • Understand basic principles of wellsite data acquisition and quality control
  • Apply the techniques used by well geologists in formation evaluation through lectures integrated with practical exercises
  • Perform hands-on exercises of cutting analysis and oil show examination
  • Acquire the understanding of drilling problems caused by subsurface conditions, and of applications of wellsite data in exploration and development.
