A little more on Jane Tink, President of Consult Tink Inc., and was APEGA’s 98th president from April 2017 to April 2018.
Early Life and Career:
Jane Tink, P.Eng., was born in Red Deer, Alberta, and attended school in Pincher Creek, where she began volunteering for various youth and sports groups. She attended the University of Calgary and obtained her Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering in 1984. After graduation she joined a smaller oil and gas company, and in 1987, while there, she obtained the title of Professional Engineer. She began her career reviewing and programming an economic evaluation program and reserve tracking system and moved on to become the company’s Drilling and Completion Engineer.
Jane worked for a private oil and gas company for a number of years, where she was responsible for various geographical areas including all aspects of engineering, from exploration to well abandonment and reclamation. She also maintained the Novell and Novell/Unix computer system and was responsible for testing and integrating new engineering software. During this time she completed the University of Calgary APEGA Management Certificate in 1995 and continued her volunteer activities with APEGA and AWES, and as a speaker at conferences and schools. In 1994 she joined Ryder Scott Company when they opened their Canadian office. There she was a team leader, APEGA Responsible Member, and primary contact for clients both domestically and internationally. During this time she also lived at and operated a cattle ranch, where she gained a better appreciation of the economic and environmental sustainability challenges of maintaining a safe and secure food chain.
In 2013, Jane started a consulting firm, Consult Tink Inc., which provides contract engineering to clients domestically and internationally. Jane continues to prepare estimates of reserves and resources and future net income for various financial institutions and exchanges worldwide. The firm is an APEGA Permit Holder for which she is the Responsible Member. One of her career highlights has been to mentor and encourage both professionals and students in the professions. Jane currently lives south of Calgary with her family.
Jane’s Geographical areas of Experience: Canada, United States, GOM, Ecuador - Oriente Basin, Argentina, Columbia, Guatemala, North Sea, Australia, New Zealand, China, Ukraine, FSU - Turkmenistan - Lam and Zhdanov Fields, Russian - Tymen-Petchora Basin, Komi-Artic Region and Salym Fields, Western Siberia
Volunteering and Other Roles:
She became involved in the Association of Women in Engineering and Science (AWES), holding various positions including President. She was also on the Journal of Canadian Petroleum Technology (JCPT) editorial review committee and during this time Jane began volunteering with APEGA — first with the Outreach Program making school presentations and then with Calgary Branch.
In 2003 Jane was invited to run for APEGA Council and was honoured with the opportunity to serve as an APEGA Council Member from 2004 to 2007. She considered it an honour to serve her fellow professionals and the general public, and she relished the opportunity to give back to the profession that has afforded her such wonderful opportunities throughout her career. APEGA has an enormous impact on the economy, safety, and advancement of Alberta, of Canada, and of the world. It’s an honour to once again participate in developing strategies to help our Members maintain the worldwide reputation of providing exceptional professional and technical input to any projects that they are involved in.
After being on APEGA’s Council, Jane was the Chair of the Aboriginal Committee and guest speaker at various conferences, and continued to volunteer locally, including being “Cookie” for her son’s Cub pack.
