We can provide core workshops tailored to group size, location and academic level. These events are great informal session to learn more about the North Sea and offshore UK geology, while handling a variety of core material.

Members from North Sea Core CIC will be present to guide participants through core material, relevant log  data and geological interpretations, as required. The opportunity to acquire hand samples of core at the end of the workshop as a reminder of the geology observed can also be provided.


The core workshops can be enhanced with field trips to relevant local outcrops, bridging the gap between onshore and offshore geology. We work with those knowledgeable of both North Sea and local Aberdeenshire geology to select relevant material.


All field trips will be tailored to compliment the workshop specifications. We will work to ensure suitable health and safety precautions are in place and risk assessments are undertaken for all field work. This may involve a requirement for reconnaissance of any unfamiliar locations or to check access.

Please Contact Us if you are interested are interested in the material available, to discuss a potential workshop or in the option to include a field trip as part of a workshop.
