GTI’s Dr. Alfred Lacazette Presents at the 49th Stanford Geothermal Workshop

by Geothermal Technologies | Feb 12, 2024 | News


Geothermal Technologies, Inc. (GTI)’s Dr. Alfred Lacazette presented his paper entitled “Using Petroleum Industry Data to Locate, Characterize, and Simulate a Hot Sedimentary Aquifer Geothermal Prospect” at the 49th Stanford University Geothermal Workshop. The paper was delivered to an attentive audience during the Monday afternoon session of February 12, 2024.

This study provides a workflow for, and example of, exploration for, and simulation of, a Hot Sedimentary Aquifer geothermal prospect using the abundant data collected by the oil and gas industry. Such rich data sets are only available in oil and gas fields, which tend to be hotter than surrounding areas and hence are desirable targets for geothermal exploration. HSA geothermal electricity production will greatly expand the geographic coverage of geothermal electricity generation.


About the 49th Stanford Geothermal Workshop

(Stanford Geothermal Workshop | Geothermal Program)
 The goals of the conference are to bring together engineers, scientists and managers involved in geothermal reservoir studies and developments; provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on the exploration, development and use of geothermal resources; and to enable prompt and open reporting of progress. We strongly encourage all scientists and engineers involved in geothermal reservoir technology to attend the workshop.
