Laboratory Technician

Job Overview

Laboratory technicians combine a love of chemistry with the energy industry. They are the ones behind the scenes who test drilling results in the field, examine water quality in SAGD processes, or work with chemicals within refinery processes in oil sands operations. They monitor and analyze chemical reactions and levels to understand, measure and remediate any issues.

Laboratory technicians work throughout the industry, setting up and conducting chemical experiments, tests and analyses. They also develop and document new testing procedures as part of continuous improvement.

They often work in teams and are responsible for the quality control of chemical processes.
