Geothermal Technologies Strengthens Technical Team

by | Feb 1, 2022 | News and Announcements

Geothermal Technologies, Inc. (GTI) has recently expanded its technical team with the additions of Dr. Ge Jin and Dr. Veit J. Matt.

Ge Jin is a geophysicist with numerous successes in both academic research and industry. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor at the Colorado School of Mines and the Co-Director of the CSM Reservoir Characterization Project. Jin’s experience includes multiple roles working at ConocoPhillips as a Geophysicist researching pragmatic applications of Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) and Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS).  Jin’s PhD thesis was on an Automated Surface-wave Measuring System.  Jin will assist the company in obtaining meaningful borehole measurements and analysis of GTI’s GenaSys™ demonstration facility.

Veit Matt is a Petroleum Systems Analyst/Modeler with a specialty in geothermal evaluation of complex onshore basins from mega-regional to prospect and reservoir scale.  During his 20 years of supporting exploration, appraisal, and development in the oil & gas industry,he has worked on numerous basins in the U.S. and Canada (Williston, Northern Appalachian, Anadarko, Arkoma, Denver, Powder, San Juan, Michigan, Illinois, Permian, North Slope Alaska, Alberta, etc.) as well as internationally (Senegal, Western Greenland, and Chile, etc.).  His work is grounded on realistic 3D earth models that are designed and calibrated utilizing diverse technical data sets, which can tightly integrate stratigraphic, sedimentologic, structural, geomechanical, thermal, fluid flow, geochemical, geophysical, pressure, log, etc.  data types.  Veit was a PostDoc at the Unversity of Colorado at Boulder, EMARC.  He got his PhD at Texas A&M University, an MS from Albert-Ludwigs Universität, Freiburg, Germany, and an MS from Eastern Washington University.   Veit will assist GTI in identifying suitable sites around the world for the construction of future GenaSys geothermal power plants.

“We are pleased to welcome Jin and Veit to our technical team,” says Jim Hollis, COO of GTI.  “GTI continues to grow our world-class team of experts to advance our novel geothermal technology.  And, the knowledge and experience that Jin and Veit bring to the table will further expand our team’s capabilities.”
