Tailings Engineer

Job Overview

Tailings engineers are essential to the safe and efficient operations of oil sands facilities and ensure that the clay, sand, water and residual bitumen (or oil) that make up a site’s tailings are safely managed and properly processed.

They design and coordinate technical programs, processes and infrastructure to manage, treat, store and remediate tailings from oil sands production operations. Tailings engineers often work on projects that require them to use skills and knowledge from across a wide range of engineering specializations including mechanical, chemical and civil engineering.
