The Korean government has formulated the 3rd Energy Basic Plan, the Renewable Energy 2030 Action Plan and the Hydrogen Economy Roadmap. In particular, Korea has established a goal to boost the share of renewable energy to 30~35% from its current 7% by 2040 and to increase the share of hydrogen in the final energy supply to 5% by 2040.
With its ambitious national drive for energy transition, MOTIE and SMG are hosting the 8th International Renewable Energy Conference (IREC). KIREC Seoul 2019 will provide a global platform for ministers, mayors, high-level decision makers, experts, specialists and thought leaders, as well as private sector players and civil society, to discuss and share their vision, experience and solutions to accelerate the global uptake of renewable energy.

Radial Water Jet Drilling
(RJD) is a common technology to stimulate oil and gas wells in sedimentary
the EC funded Horizon 2020 project SURE (Novel Productivity Enhancement Concept
for a Sustainable Utilization of a Geothermal Resource) the radial jet drilling
technology was investigated and tested as a method to increase performance of
insufficiently performing geothermal wells.
The technology: Radial jet drilling uses the power of a
focused jet of fluids, applied to a rock through a coil inserted in an existing
well. This technology is likely to provide much better control of the enhanced
flow paths around a geothermal well and does not involve the amount of fluid as
conventional hydraulic fracturing, thereby reducing the risk of induced seismicity
considerably. RJD shall be applied to access and connect high permeable zones
within geothermal reservoirs to the main well with a higher degree of control
compared to conventional stimulation technologies.
consortium of geoscientiﬁc and applied technical research institutions, specialized
universities, a dedicated technology provider and a geothermal company investigated
the technology over various spatial and temporal scales ranging from short term
laboratory experiments to field scale applications.
show that RJD is an innovative stimulation technology with a high potential for
geothermal applications, but there are some technical challenges that need to
be addressed in future work.

The “AAPG Energy Transition Forum – A New Era for Geoscience” in Amsterdam, September 2018, brought together expert speakers and distinguished participants to discuss the Future of Energy, Sustainability, Digitalisation, and Skills and New Ways of Working. Sessions provided thought-provoking presentations and interactive breakout sessions utilising a variety of facilitation styles to maximise engagement.
For 2019, the event will build on the discussions that took place in 2018, but being reframed with a greater focus on the individual in a New Era for the Geoscientist the dilemmas that keep him or her up at night, and the skills that might help unlock future opportunities.
