A complete introductory training designed for the well site geologist.
This course covers all the main disciplines needed to perform efficiently the Well Site Geology activity. It adresses two domains which are of key value: drilling adequacy to the prognosed geological objectives and drilling overall safety.
Upon completion of this course, attendees are expected to understand and being able to practice in their daily activity:
Any participant will feel confident in detecting overpressure and safety related issue, in detecting reservoir and interpreting fluid content and porosity.
He will be able, also to understand and explain to the company man, the meaning of gas reading on surface, a topic usually not covered by other WSG trainings.
At last, but not least, each participant will be deeply aware of his responsibility as operational geologist, either in terms of technical efficiency, or HSE requirements.
This course is based on interactive pedagogy and relies as much as possible on common sense (and not only on computer software applications…).
Numerous exercises based on real case studies will be interpreted, both individually and collectively. Each phase (module) of the training is concluded by a QUIZ. It allows each participant to evaluate his progresses.
This course is available in French, English and Spanish (with English documentation).
There is no specific requirement for this course. It should be organised in any meeting room with common HSE characteristics, in your company premises or elsewhere.

With the constant evolution of tools, software and the field application of new technologies, the Well Site Geology activity has change dramatically over the last years. Consequently the Well Site Geologist has to be properly trained to be able to propose a real added value on the drilling rig site.
