In-person: Operations Geology and application to Energy Transition and Renewables


Location of windfarms depends on seabed morphology and geology so site surveys are necessary.

The integrated reservoir modelling network group is happy to present a lunch and learn with Michael Simpson. He will be talking about operations geology and application to energy transition and renewables. Don't miss out on this great in-person event.

Operations Geologists are primarily concerned with trajectory and well planning and supervision of geological operations during the drilling phase but often there is considerable overlap with development geology. The role is primarily using the planned trajectory to estimate Pore pressure, fracture pressure and geohazards using offset data and seismic.

For well planning geohazards begin at the seabed and extend all the way through the reservoir to TD. Well planning begins with the trajectory and finding the optimum way of reaching the reservoir targets with minimal encountering of geohazards and to identifying pore pressure ramps in order to plan casing.
