These scientists are drilling in Oman's al-Hajar mountain range, in search of a solution to climate change.
Before developing a deposit you have to ascertain that the area in question does contain gold. This is done by geologists, drillers and lab men.

geology field drilling production
For Geologists working in stacked plays, identifying the best producing zones for horizontal wells can be a daunting task. For example, over 80% of reported production for horizontal wells in the Delaware Basin is in either the Bone Springs or Wolfcamp formations. But in some areas of the Bone Springs, thickness exceeds 4500 feet and in the Wolfcamp up to 8000 feet. Drilling in the wrong zone could mean millions of dollars in production losses. In such a thick formation, how do you identify the best specific zone to drill in order to maximize well production?
A geotechnician in Dawson Creek shows Brian how he analyzes rock samples that are found through drilling, uses scientific equipment, and produces technical reports. He has experience at over 160 well site locations.

IMPORTANCE OF GEOLOGICAL SURVEY FOR BORE WELL DRILLING Geophysical survey such as electrical resistivity sounding is the best approach. Surveyor sends electrical current into the ground and measures the resistance at various depth. From this measures of resistance or computed bulk resistivity, geophysicist can find out exactly what is below in the subsurface. Without geophysical survey, putting tube wells here and there will not yield groundwater in problematic area. Drilling of a borewell with mear perception is not always giving water. Selection of deep bore well sites must be based on some scientific data by conducting proper examinations. Even some time these data will not give good result. Because the groundwater movement and potential is based on so many parameters. Some...
Geologists logging test hole. Boring is 40' deep. Drilled in a backyard of a house with a limited access drill rig, to determine depth to bedrock and slope stability for addition to a new swimming pool.
Energy Training Resources is a leader in oil and gas industry education. Our primary business is conducting industry overview courses for oil and gas companies, contractors/suppliers and accounting firms to improve their employees' working knowledge, team-working capabilities and communication skills. We also have public courses available. We are often asked to explain job titles used in the oil and gas industry. Many common titles provide only vague clues of the functions performed, such as geophysicist, landman, reservoir engineer, strategic sourcer or joint interest accountant. Some of these roles are so unique to the industry that you won't understand an explanation unless you first understand a little about basic industry functions. To provide context, we have grouped job titles into...
- Like our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oilvips - Geologists and geophysicists have agreed on the existence of a "prospect", a potential field. In order to find out if hydrocarbons are indeed trapped in the reservoir rock, we must drill to hit them. Bearing in mind the knowledge acquired about the substratum and the topography of the land, the best position for the installation of the drilling equipment is determined. Generally it is vertically above the point of maximum thickness of the geological layer suspected of containing hydrocarbons. The drillers then make a hole in conditions that are sometimes difficult. Of small diameter (from 20 to 50 cm) this hole will generally go down to a depth of between 2000 and 4000 meters. Exceptionally, certain wells exceed 6000 m. One of them h...

Basically story goes, is that Shell asked a farmer for permission to drill for gold and ore samples on their property, farmer says no .... so so SHELL Geologists and Drillers,put their Drill on a 30 degree angle, which the drill goes under the road FOR 30 PLUS METRES, and into the Farmers Property.... and yes... they find GOLD! Cunning Geologists and Gold Drillers - Permission Denied To Drill For Gold Samples
Ever wonder what does a geologist do? What is geology field work like? What does an Actic diamond drilling operation look like? During the summer of 2011 I had the amazing opportunity to work at a remote mining exploration geology camp located on the Melville Peninsula, Nunavut above the Arctic Circle. Our main operation there was collecting diamond drilling core to better map a large banded iron formation. Here I'm flying from a daily down-hole survey job at the diamond drill back to our heli-camp over the tundra in the middle of nowhere!
