Typical jobs in Geology

Wellsite Geologist Jobs

A well site geologist studies and classifies rock cuttings from oil and gas wells in order to determine how drilling should be started and how it should proceed. They use specialised tests, core samples and rock-cutting data to build up knowledge of the structure being drilled.

They are experienced geologists, deciding when tests should be carried out and, ultimately, when to stop drilling. They send reports and logs of completed drilling to the operations geologist and offer advice to oil company representatives.
