WE&T’s Operator Essentials column presents easily accessible and digestible fundamental information. Published since 2010, it is intended to share “what every operator should know” about each topic covered. The column is arranged as a grid of knowledge, principles, and practical considerations — each successive column provides more detailed information.

WEF Members get access to all installments of Operator Essentials. 

The best place to access the archives is through Access Water, where you can download a PDF to print, or read and make notes in the Access Water platform. You will need to log in using your WEF credentials.
