European Geophysical Services to Partner with Newcastle University to Deliver a one-day Downhole Geophysics Workshop


European Geophysical Services is pleased to announce that it is partnering with Newcastle University to deliver a one-day geophysics workshop at Cockle Park Farm in Morpeth on Wednesday 15th March.

The workshop, which will be led by Senior Logging Engineers David Hingley and Rob Jennins, is ideal for anyone wanting to understand the essentials of downhole geophysics and expand their knowledge of geology, groundwater, borehole construction and tools and techniques. The course will cover the following:

  • Essential theory of downhole geophysics
  • Practical demonstrations of the equipment used, how it operates and the data that can be obtained
  • Discussion on geophysical data applications
  • An opportunity to interact with expert geophysicists to gain insight in to how best to use the tools and techniques

David Hingley from European Geophysical Services said: “It’s great that EGS is returning to Newcastle University to deliver another workshop. It’s always great to bring our knowledge and experience to the next generation of potential geophysicists and geologists. It’s the perfect opportunity for attendees to get a handle on wireline borehole geophysics and how useful it can be in subsurface investigations”

Lecture notes will be provided digitally for ongoing reference as part of the workshop. The day also counts for related professional disciplines and could be evidenced (certificates provided) to meet chartership requirements.

The course will cost £199 to attend and is open to anyone studying at Newcastle University, or externally to anyone interested in the field of geology, hydrogeology, earth sciences and related areas. Anyone who would like to attend this course can register and pay for the course by scanning the QR code at the top of this page or by clicking the link below and typing in the course title downhole geophysics:

To attend the course, attendees will require warm clothes, lunch, drinks and notebook/laptop. The recommended basic knowledge to attend the course and get the most from the day is a basic awareness of geology, groundwater and borehole construction.

The course will take place at Cockle Park Farm, a 307-hectare mixed farm situated near Morpeth which is owned and operated by Newcastle University.

The address is: University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, Cockle Park Farm, Morpeth, NE61 3EA
