Operations Geology deals with the interplay of geology and engineering before the field is already active. Drillers should know why to drill within a certain section of the reservoir, the completion team should also know where to perforate the well. It also introduces participants to the dynamic workings and updates of the field development plan as more data becomes available from Cuttings, cores, logs, and well tests.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- plan and prepare for a drilling location and for geological services;
- identify drilling operations and geological drilling hazards;
- understand and apply logging services and well testing services; and
- Evaluate drilling reports and the impact on the field development plan.
