This course teaches both fundamental and more advanced elements of wellsite and operations geology. First, a review will be made of the background and some of the basics of these related disciplines. The course will then detail each of the main duties and responsibilities of operations and wellsite geologists.

There will also be detailed reviews of the more traditional tasks of sample and show description as well as coring and sidewall coring.
