We are hi-tech company developing a ground-breaking technology platform PLASMABIT® for milling and deep-drilling.

PLASMABIT® technology enables massive time and cost savings compared to related existing technologies. We open up vast new possibilities in geothermal energy, oil & gas and other industrial segments.

We are world pioneers in plasma milling. Our team of 120+ professionals has successfully accomplished the first ever plasma milling underwater and the first ever plasma milling in a High Pressure/High Temperature environment. First applications are under preparation for release shortly.

Your job will be:

  • Qualitative & quantitative description of rocks interaction with Plasma Drilling Bits
  • Rock mechanics analysis in the vicinity of the Plasma Drilling Bits
  • Analysis of cracks formation and propagation in the rock during the Plasma drilling process
  • Analysis of the drilled fragments
  • Analysis of the filtration properties of the rocks after Plasma Drilling
  • Analysis of the effect of heat on rock mass around the borehole
  • Parametric analysis for Plasma Drilling Bits design innovations
  • Comprehensive evaluation of the rocks after the Plasma Drilling Bits exposure
  • Mechanical & Thermo-mechanical testing of rocks
  • Identification of rocks and formations
  • Petrographic analysis of rocks
  • Design of the Plasma drilling working window parameters for different formation types
  • Implementation of the analysis results to the design of the Plasma Drilling Bit and whole Plasma Drilling service procedure
  • Risk assessment of the Plasma Drilling process
  • Evaluation of the borehole stability during Plasma drilling
  • Performing role of the test engineeer during the Plasma Drilling tests, writing test reports
