G2: Operations and Wellsite Geologist

Target Audience
  • Wellsite Geologists
  • Operations Geologists
  • Mud Loggers
  • MWD Operators
  • Directional Drillers
  • Technical & Support Staff
Course Aims
To provide an overview of the role of Operations and Wellsite Geologists in Well Planning and Drilling Surveillance phases.
To provide practical instruction in wellsite geological techniques and geosteering co-ordination.
Delegates will learn how to:
  • Describe & Evaluate drill cuttings
  • Produce a Formation Pressure Profile to include estimated pore pressure and fracture gradient data
  • Determine Lithology and Reservoir information from well logs
  • Use Mudlogging and MWD data to perform real-time geosteering co-ordination.
