Example Project Experience

Exploration project manager for comprehensive geothermal assessment, Mt Longonot, Kenya

 

Reviewed and interpreted existing reports, research theses, published papers, aerial photographs, topographic maps, and geologic maps of the project area.  Presented proposed exploration plan to Ministry of Energy in Nairobi.  Managed all on-site work including site reconnaissance, stakeholder meetings, landowner negotiations, security, logistics, and the following field surveys:

 

  • Geological fieldwork including mapping and verification of surface features (alteration, structures and thermal activity) and collection of rock samples for XRD analysis

  • Geochemical survey including collection of gas and condensate samples from fumaroles and completion of a soil CO2 gas flux survey

  • Geophysical surveys including completion of gravity, magnetic and MT surveys

 

Evaluated historic and new field data and prepared a conceptual model of the resource.  Assessed energy potential.  Prepared specifications for access roads and water supply requirements.  Prepared recommendations for specific well targets and specifications.  Presented and defended exploration results at the peer review meeting.  Prepared Final Resource Assessment and Well Targeting Reports.
