November Webinar Presentation

DATE:  November 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm

TOPIC: Geothermal Opportunities in the West Canadian Sedimentary Basin

PRESENTER: Kirsten Marcia, Deep Corp.

Abstract

The Deep Earth Energy Production Corp. (“DEEP”) geothermal power project is located in Southeastern Saskatchewan, Canada, a few kilometres north of the United States border within the Williston Basin.   Successful geothermal resource exploration in a hot sedimentary aquifer (HSA) requires two main contributing factors: hot fluid in permeable rocks and high well productivity. Modern well design has made sweeping the heat from the reservoir possible. DEEP developed a unique geothermal field design to maximize flow rates and optimize an important regional geothermal resource. DEEP’s “ribcage” geothermal well field design is globally unique and may be a transformative application of modern oil and gas drilling, completions and stimulation design applied for the first time on a renewable energy project. The project is advancing with local world-class oilfield expertise and redeploying that uniquely skilled workforce into a new clean energy industry for Canada.

Speaker Biography

Kirsten Marcia is both a professional geoscientist and a resource entrepreneur who has participated in the formation and early-stage development of several Saskatchewan resource companies. For the last ten years, she has been the pioneer and key driving force behind the development of Canada’s soon-to-be-first geothermal power generation site. Kirsten is using her previous experience gained from developing traditional resources to develop an entirely new, clean energy resource for the province of Saskatchewan.

Kirsten has worked in the resource exploration industry for more than 20 years in a number of roles for publicly traded companies – Northern Saskatchewan mapping and prospecting, VP Exploration, International Director of Investor Relations, CEO – while contributing to the exploration and development of resources regarding diamonds, gold, base metals, coal, petroleum and most recently, renewable energy.  As an articulate champion of Canadian innovation, Kirsten has long been active in the community and regularly speaks about geology, the resource industry, and geothermal energy.

Kirsten is the founder, President and CEO of Deep Earth Energy Production (“DEEP”).  A private company, DEEP focuses on developing geothermal resources to meet Saskatchewan’s – and Canada’s – increasing energy needs with sustainable, baseload renewable power and industrial heating applications. She is a geology graduate from the University of Saskatchewan and a Professional Geoscientist, registered in the Province of Saskatchewan. 

In her free time, Kirsten can be found happily working on yard projects at her acreage she shares with her husband and teenage daughter or camping and fishing.  And beyond this global pandemic, she looks forward to hosting dinner gatherings with friends and family.
