Dr. Rick Chalaturnyk is a Professor of Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Alberta and has held the Energi Simulation Chair in Reservoir Geomechanics as well as the AITF Industry Chair in Reservoir Geomechanics for Unconventional Resources over the past 5 years. Academically and professionally, Dr. Chalaturnyk has applied geomechanics principles to improve our understanding of how hydrocarbon reservoirs behave and ensure that these resources are recovered in a safe, economic, and environmentally sustainable manner. He has created [RG]2, working primarily in the area of unconventional resource geomechanics and the geological storage of CO2 and has established four unique GeoInnovation Environments: the Geomechanical Reservoir Experimental Facility (GeoREF); the Geotechnical Centrifuge Experimental Research Facility (GeoCERF); 3D Printing of Geological Media for Reservoir Geomechanics (GeoPRINT); the Geomechanical Reservoir Modelling Technology platform (GeoRMT); and GeoSAFETY - Geoscience for Subsurface Assurance of Future Energy Technology.
