Event type:
Organised by:
Petroleum Group
The Geological Society, Burlington House
Event status:

The 2016 Operations Geology Conference will aim to move the professional and technical discussion to a wider audience with a direct call to our industry colleagues from associated disciplines. In addition to our core operations geologists we seek active participation from personnel in subsurface, drilling and engineering to significantly broaden the four main conference themes outlined below.

As key oil industry professionals we need to ask ourselves serious questions during this time of constrained conditions. We should challenge ourselves to work better together by fully integrating with associated disciplines, optimising our processes and enhancing communications. The ultimate aim is to become more cost effective and to deliver better results.

  • State of the Discipline – Who are we? Demographics, diversity, update on our profession and where we are going in in a lower oil price environment. What are our key challenges going forward?
  • Focus on the Wellsite – Wellsite geology, focus on re-invigorating/updating/more fully exploiting fundamental techniques, use of real-time data, daily work flows and innovative processes.
  • Integrating Teams – Working better together with wellsite geology, geomechanics, well engineering, biostratigraphy, geochemistry, wireline, petrophysicists, mudlogging and LWD. Improving communications.
  • Working Smarter – What tools and techniques do we need to ‘work smarter’, more cost effectively and safely?
