GeoPlacer.com is a recently launched website that connects competence-assessed wellsite and operations geologists with clients, which officially opened online registration for operators at PETEX 2012 in London. Since its unveiling in August of last year, the website has seen an influx of registrations by experienced geological personnel from all over the world. It now has a fully populated database of CVs from these geologists, who are ready to work with GeoPlacer.com’s expanding network of operators around the globe.

For operators, registration with GeoPlacer.com will provide a range of tools to help operations geologists plan projects and assess the resources required. For example, the GeoPlacer planner offers a visual timeline of a registered operator’s past, current and future resource requirements, which is linked to the database of experienced, highly qualified geologists, offering operators access to people with the various skill sets required for each and every well. Operators can gain access to exactly the right geologist for their project, simply by searching the database on years of experience, well types, region and a wide range of competences.

As the website continues to welcome new consultants to its database, the number of geologists using the website’s search feature to find work opportunities is increasing each week. In fact, the total knowledge of all the registered consultants on GeoPlacer.com amounts to over eleven thousand years of relevant geological work experience. The market’s strong demand for wellsite geologists has increased the need for operators to plan for projects further in advance than ever before. Included in the consultant profiles is a helpful planner to facilitate this demand and to allow consultants to schedule work for where and when it suits them.

The launch of the website coincides with a nationwide advertising campaign in various publications. This will be one of the many methods used by GeoPlacer.com as it looks to expand in the global market and enhance the ability of consultants and operators to find the most suitably experienced personnel for their projects.
