BOREALIS HIRING GEOSCIENTIST (INTERNSHIP OR EXPERIENCED ROLE)
Location: This is a full-time position located in Calgary, Alberta with field work in British Columbia.
Established in 2007, Borealis GeoPower Inc. is a private Canadian corporation focused on developing high temperature geothermal projects throughout Western and Northern Canada. Our project portfolio includes 2 projects in British Columbia and 1 in Northwest Territories, as well as a diverse collection of consulting projects.
Our goal is to unlock Canada’s vast geothermal energy potential. Our team is working together to enable geothermal power and heat production as a player in the Canadian renewable energy market. We are a proud B Corp company and a member of the Equal by 30 campaign. For more information, please consult borealisgeopower.com.
Borealis GeoPower plans to continue to drill core holes and slim production wells in the Valemount and Terrace, BC areas in 2019. Pre-drilling work is also taking place to support our Fort Liard, NWT property. We are currently looking to fill a staff geoscientist position.
The geoscience role involves the creation of a reservoir characterization model through the collection, quality control, processing, and interpretation of surficial and subsurface geothermal data for multiple active geothermal projects in different geological settings.
This can include, but is not limited to, surficial measurements, well logging, geophysical surveys, drone-based surveys, structural geology ,and seismic applications. Working closely with the GIS specialist and other scientists on the team, data is integrated into a proprietary algorithm. Building scripts, testing, and improving this internal software will also be a part of the role.
A. Resource Development
a. Reservoir Characterization – Continual improvement of proprietary software for geothermal project development that can be seamlessly integrated into current geothermal reservoir modeling software such as Leapfrog.
b. Analyze data collected from surveys.
c. Data Harvesting- Review historical data with respect to geological, geophysical, and geochemical information on a regional or localized area.
d. Data Cleaning- QC historical data, including re-processing as required, as well as quality control of proprietary data.
e. Data Integration- Continual updating of conceptual models of reservoirs.
f. Interpretation- Advise on the developable geothermal resources while quantifying the risks and uncertainties involved.
B. Technical Writing
a. Lead technical writing for external reporting.
C. Field Investigations
a. Conduct surveys: Create fieldwork grids for sampling and participate in sample/data collection. This can result in being remotely located for extended periods of time.
b. Keep current with the available geothermal supply chain of contractors.
c. Coordinate with laboratories and contractors to process collected samples/data.
d. Coordinate with contractors with respect to proposals, timelines, and deliverables.
D. Research and Development
a. Keep current with subsurface exploration techniques that could potentially be used in the Canadian context.
