Geology for Drillers

Duration: 3 days

About this course

This 3-day course introduces the key geological elements of petroleum and hydrothermal systems. Special attention will be given to geological pressure and depth uncertainty as they are safety critical elements. Delegates have three practical exercises on the planning of a typical North Sea well: cuttings description, tops uncertainty analysis and pore pressure prediction.


Designed for well engineers and rig crew involved in communication with geologists.


Delegates will receive a certificate from Well Academy on completion of the course.
