Place of Business Vápenka 4, Bratislava

Employment Fulltime

Turn-out Date By agreement

Salary 4000€/ monthly

Do you want to have a dream job in technology development? Do you want to be a part of a team that aims to design a new plasma drilling technology that will change the drilling industry? Are you an expert in the area of a rock mechanics? Are you able to take responsibility for a strategic direction of the drilling mechanisms that plasma offers and related technology? Would you like to exercise your expertize in the environment where creativity and innovativeness are every day part of work?

What we do offer:

  • Opportunity to be part of a team of top experts who develop a unique technology solution with a major impact on global energy
  • Cooperate with the world’s top
  • Participate in research and implement know-how into practice
  • Professional education and continuous gaining new experience
  • Comfortable parking close by the company building, work in a pleasant environment, flexible working time, extra day offs, fresh fruits and vegetables daily and many others

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

We will be glad to know you, if you have:
