Geothermal Project Development, Economics and Risks
This two-day course focuses on industry best practices to make data-driven decisions to optimize resources and capital during the various project phases:
- Exploration of geo-energy
- data integration, conceptual modeling and well targeting
- Development of geo-energy
- well testing, development of an exploitation strategy to sustainably supply geothermal fluids, and resource design criteria
- Utilization of Geo-Energy
- Design phase, process design, project type and size selection, selection of materials and equipment
- Mitigation of scale, corrosion and gases
In addition, guidelines on geothermal project economics, time scheduling, financial modeling and assessing project feasibility are included.
A brief outline of the course content on day 1 and day 2:
- Resource Exploration and Development
- Integration of subsurface disciplines
- Why a conceptual model?
- Data-driven decision making to optimize the use of resources and capital
- Pre-drilling resource capacity assessment methods
- Well drilling
- Well testing and sampling
- Pre-operations numerical reservoir simulation
