Energy

Itasca concentrates on the interface between power generation and the subsurface environment that can help develop sustainable power for future generations. Itasca engineers work on a wide variety of geotechnical challenges associated with the production of energy and management of resulting waste materials, including:

  • Conventional oil and gas
  • Unconventional oil and gas, including hydraulic fracturing
  • Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS)
  • Underground waste isolation
  • Power Infrastructure
