Laboratory Design (LD): How did you get into your field? Jeannie Pierce Thacker (JPT): I used to be an end user in the lab! I have an undergraduate degree in Biology and landed my first job as a researcher in Cambridge, the biggest biotech hotbed in the world. Over the better part of a decade, I moved from a small research manufacturing company, to Harvard Medical School, to Takeda (then Millennium Pharmaceuticals). From these positions, I gained an amazing amount of firsthand experience about everything from R&D, to manufacturing, academia and drug pipelines. I knew I needed to get an advanced degree in order to further my career. But I was also feeling disconnected from patients while working at the bench. I had been the point person for several lab moves and liaised between the user group and A/E/C teams, and thought, “If I could start over again, I’d be an architect.” And then I found a way to do exactly that! And I’ve been specializing in lab design ever since. I love creating spaces that are scientist centric and help to keep the researchers motivated and connected to their core mission. LD: What’s the most surprising thing you’ve learned in your career? JPT: The most surprising thing that I’ve learned from my experience is how much I did not know about how labs function as an end user. During one of our lab moves, I remember going on the walkthrough of our new space a few days before our move. I pointed to a fume hood and said, “We have been talking and decided it would be best if this was over there instead, can you move that?” The contractor’s reply was a hearty laugh. I didn’t know that the fume hood was a monument and all the intricacies of exhaust, gasses and electrical grounding that were involved. I only knew it as the proper place to conduct a specific assay or use noxious chemicals. As an end user, the functionality of the lab is all about work flow-supply, prep, and equipment locations. While on the design side, the functionality is hidden in ceilings, walls, penthouses etc., all unseen and unknown to the end users. LD: What do you consider the highlight of your career? JPT: Co-founding TRIA! My career has been on a great trajectory, albeit a unique one. That success has been mostly due to a core philosophy of focusing on the client and building a strong partnership. When that connection is made, there is a responsibility to do meaningful work, and therefore great design. At the end of the project, there is no break-up, but rather a solid foundation to support a long-term relationship. At TRIA, we have built the firm on this innate mission: to value client relationships above all. It’s who we are, what we do, and what sets us apart. What’s amazing too is that this tenet has drawn together such a talented group of people. The dynamic and energy in our office is so motivating and I feel so fortunate to be part of this incredible team. Also the encouragement and support that we have had from our clients and partners is better than I ever could have imagined. LD: If you could give just one piece of advice to others in your field, what would it be? JPT: The end user sitting across from you is brilliant, and they have an area of expertise … but it’s not building design and construction. That’s your area of expertise, so embrace it and put it to work. The end user’s area of expertise most likely has something to do with ridding the world of rare diseases, so don’t ask them what cfms they want or if their VCT needs to be low VOC. (They have their own acronyms, and you need to learn them!) The correct questions to ask are those that clarify the processes and functional needs of the space. Be proactive about gathering the information you need with the least burden on the client. That’s how to add value to the design process. LD: What advice do you have for people just starting their career, or for students who are thinking of majoring in architecture/engineering/etc.? JPT: For most people graduating from architecture school, there is quite a shock. In school, you study iconic structures and the works of masters, all while creating studio projects only limited by your own imagination. The contrast in that training to what a typical day looks like for a recent graduate causes most people to become quickly disenchanted. My advice would be to not lose the love for design and ingenuity and find opportunities to be creative in all your tasks. Learn how to thrive in a cooperative setting, always put the client first, and capitalize on your strengths. And start taking your registration exams right away. The longer you wait, it becomes exponentially harder to prioritize this goal.

An estimate has found that Europe's total shale gas in place could be 6,115 Tcf and among the key challenges that will determine the ultimate productivity in Europe is a regulatory environment that is currently not suited to unconventional gas. 3Legs Resources holds six hydrocarbon exploration and prospection licenses in the Baltic covering a total area of approximately 1.03 million acres. ExxonMobil has built a large acreage position in the Podlasie and Lublin Basins of eastern Poland, the location of a potential new shale gas play. In the Ukraine, the Dnieper-Donets Basin is being targeted for shale gas potential. Canada's Realm Energy has announced plans to explore for oil and gas potential in the Posidonia and Weald shales. In northern Europe, Cuadrilla Resources and DSM Energie bought permits in the Netherlands, while BG also has a large exploration tract on the east Netherlands border with Germany.

The year 2010 saw an increased supply of sand-based proppants by either newly established or nontraditional frac sand suppliers, with several more operations pending. Oxane says that coating silica sand with resin has two principal functions such as improving the proppant's effective strength and spreading the pressure load more uniformly. Santrol Proppants, part of Fairmount Minerals, one of the largest producers of industrial sand in the US, announced the sizable expansion of its resin-coated proppant (RCP) facility in Roff, Oklahoma, scheduled for completion late 2011, with an increased annual capacity of 500,000 US tons. ARBO's Toomsboro, Georgia, facility includes brand-new line 3 just added 250 million lbs per year of proppant to the marketplace. Nittany Extraction Technologies Company (NETCo) use waste material, including glass, alumina silicate mine tailings, fly ash, and metallurgical slags, and rock cuttings produced to the surface during oil and gas drilling, in the manufacture of high-performance proppants.

Marine Well Containment Corporation (MWCC) and Helix Well Containment Group have introduced an interim containment system, Helix Fast Response System, in February 2010, at the US Gulf of Mexico (GOM). The system, which is issued the first deepwater drilling permit by Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation, and Environment (BOEMRE), is built around a mix of new equipment and components used by BP last year to shut down the Macondo well. The unit with one blowout preventer was described as a dual barrier design able to control pressure and well flow up to 15,000 psi at two points in the assembly powered by a nearby manifold. The company is also searching for locations for staging equipment on the coast of Louisiana and Texas and a final decision is expected by mid-2011. Helix has involved regulators with regular briefings on its equipment development program, with an emphasis on incremental improvements in equipment already in use by the company, which specializes in deep-sea well work.

A Brazilian national oil company, Petrobras, is aimed towards identifying and optimizing new deepwater presalt layers by dealing with the geological, engineering, commercial, and financial challenges. The company fulfills these aims by acquiring various deepwater and ultradeepwater presalt leases in the Santos Basin, acreage that in total is larger than the entire Campos Basin to the north. In 2006, Petrobras drilled the Parati prospect on block BM-S-10 to test objectives in the post-salt section and a dome structure in the presalt. The company made further discoveries in the Santos presalt during 2008 at Jupiter, Bem-Te-Vi, Guara, and Iara. Petrobras in 2007 initiated a major technology-development program, Prosal, To meet the multiple challenges of drilling and developing the complex, difficult, and physically remote presalt reservoirs.
