Following the highly successful Operations Geology Workshop held in Aberdeen in October 2012, the Petroleum Group of the Geological Society are pleased to announce the dates for the next event, which will be held over two days in 2014. This is also the first call for abstracts.

Operations Geologists play key integrating roles at all stages of the life cycle of a well. This conference will look at the life cycle of a well and the contributions of Operations Geology at each stage. It is the intention of the convenors that both oral and poster presentations will eventually be prepared for release in a Special Publication of the Geological Society of London.

  • Well Planning - hazard identification (due to rocks, fabric, pressure, stress, geometry etc) and avoidance/mitigation, targeted data acquisition for all disciplines for life of field
  • Execution - real-time techniques, managing the drilling window, the acquisition and use of Integrity test data, appropriate isolation of permeable zones in the overburden
  • After Action Review - NPT analysis and the learning loop, continuous improvement
  • Emerging Technologies - the next generation of needs and solutions – logging, formation and gas detection/analysis, real-time well bore stability analysis tools, PPFG tools 
  • Professional Competence – the need to strengthen the available processes for training and the vetting of competence for OGs, particularly in safety critical areas

A conference dinner will be held on Wednesday 26th November at the Cavendish Hotel, Jermyn Street. Places at the dinner will be allocated on a first come first served basis and are limited to strictly 70 places. Registration for the conference dinner is now closed. Due to expected demand we will unfortunately not be able to offer places for partner or other non delegate attendees.
