Solution Mining

Solution-mining operations need to balance a diverse range of technical factors to ensure successful production. RESPEC’s engineers and scientists understand these factors and assist clients with optimizing solution-mining operations, planning for cavern-field expansions, and complying with regulatory requirements. Based on decades of solution-mined cavern experience, we help with mine scheduling to maximize available resources while ensuring safe geotechnical conditions and manageable subsidence. With advanced analysis techniques, our solution-mining professionals perform root cause analyses  of operational incidents and identify mitigation approaches and asset retirement needs. When planning new wells or mining expansions, we work with clients to optimize drilling locations and assist with meeting regulatory and monitoring requirements along with due diligence activities. RESPEC’s multifaceted approach provides clients with an advanced skillset for ensuring efficient and successful solution mining.
