Canstrat conducts a two-day course on sample logging that will educate geologists about how drill cuttings are analyzed on the wellsite.
This basic course provides the geologist with sample logging techniques and teaches them a systematic method of describing drill cuttings.
Students will learn very quickly how to use a microscope and various other tools to identify the basic petrographic properties of clastic and carbonate rocks. Our method is world renowned and sets the industry standard. Students will be provided with a microscope and light source to use during the course. Students also receive a course binder with pertinent course information and material.
Class hours are from 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
It is recommended that students have a Bachelor's degree majoring in Geology, be a Geological Technologist with accreditation from a technical school, or have worked as a mudlogger.
Students who do not have these prerequisites must speak with a Canstrat technician at (403) 284-1112 prior to registration in order to determine if this course is right for you.
Prospective students who are trained in science but not in geology should prepare themselves for this course by reading textbooks in advance on general geology, with emphasis on sedimentary rocks including carbonates, clastics, evaporites and chert and their classification systems.
