Roger Edgecombe is the Operations Director – Technical, Training & Advisory for RPS Energy Canada Ltd. Roger received his BSc. in Geology from Dalhousie University, and a MSc. in Geology from McMaster University. As a student, Roger had the unique opportunity to work in the Canadian High Artic and Subarctic environments, as well as in the sedimentary basins of Eastern Canada. During this time, he was introduced to various geophysical investigative methods, including ground probing radar (GPR), electromagnetic (EM), seismic and gravity. Although trained as a geologist, Roger has been practicing geophysics for the past 24 years.
Roger joined a seismic data acquisition and processing company in 1997, where the early part of his geophysical career was spent overseeing data acquisition crews in Eastern and Central Canada, as well as in the United States. In 2005, Roger joined RPS as a seismic interpreter. Over the last 40 years, RPS has become the preferred seismic technology services provider for the potash industry. Roger’s strengths in acquisition and program management are an asset for the recurring seismic programs at the potash mines. Roger has been fortunate to have worked on mining, oil and gas, and resource projects on all continents, except Antarctica.
In his current role, Roger is focused on Energy Transition, and the application of traditional G&G expertise in nonconventional industries, such as gas storage, helium exploration, geothermal, and geohazards.
