Chinook Consulting provides several geoscience and engineering services to geothermal development projects
Many technologies perfected in the oil and gas industry have direct application in geothermal developments. Transferable expertise and technologies open opportunities for oil patch workers and companies in renewable power projects. Other industries draw on knowledge built in oil and gas development over the years, to advance exploration and development of natural resources such as Lithium and Potash.
Examples of transferable technologies and approaches:
Geological Wellsite Supervision is at the centre of Chinook’s services. Deep geothermal doublets and horizontal wells harvesting baseload geothermal power benefit from geoscience supervision deployed on the rig while drilling.
Applicable to horizontal geothermal wells with single or multi-leg designs, geosteering is a tool used to pinpoint stratigraphic position and determine apparent dips along the boreholes in order to place lateral legs in precise reservoir locations. The service is deployed at locations on drilling rigs and/or remotely.
The service includes the following deliverables:
