Geothermal Technologies Participates in the Stanford Geothermal Workshop

by Geothermal Technologies | Feb 6, 2023 | Announcements

On February 6th – 8th, Jim Hollis participated in this year’s Stanford Geothermal Workshop.  The conference brought together engineers, scientists, and managers from around the world who are involved in geothermal reservoir studies and developments; provided a forum for the exchange of ideas on the exploration, development, and use of geothermal resources; and enabled the prompt and open reporting of progress.

Papers were presented on recent research relating to geothermal reservoirs including:

  • Case Studies: reservoir response to production, effects of injection, scaling characteristics
  • Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS): current and future activities
  • Engineering Techniques: reservoir simulation, empirical methods, well tests, tracers
  • Field Management: strategies for exploitation, injection, scale inhibition
  • Exploration: geophysics, geochemistry, geology, heat flow studies, outflows
  • Drilling and Well Bore Flows: well stimulation, bore flow modeling, hydro-fracturing, scaling
  • Low Enthalpy Systems: applications of heat pumps, hot dry rock technology
  • Geosciences: application of geophysics, geochemistry, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics.
