Course description

Geology and Fractures for High Enthalpy Geothermal

This course covers aspects of geoscience relevant to high enthalpy geothermal systems. It will introduce the geothermal system play concept and geothermal field classification. Teaching materials and exercises will provide skill development in how to characterise important aspects of the geology of these geothermal systems from structural networks, permeability, geomechanics and more.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The course is intended for all career stage industry professionals and early career researchers with a geoscience or geo-engineering background, including those with a familiarity in oil and gas production.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

  • Recognise the geological components of a geothermal system play.
  • Understand the range of data required to characterise a fractured geothermal reservoir.
  • Characterise fracture and stress data from a geothermal reservoir that can be used in geomechanical models and flow models.
  • Determine potential geological controls on well permeability.

Training Course Content

Session 1 High Enthalpy Geothermal Systems

  • Geothermal system plays
  • Fractured reservoirs
  • Geothermal geomechanics

Session 2 Characterising geothermal systems

  • Building blocks of a geothermal resource model
  • Geothermal borehole imaging
  • Structural analysis

Session 3 Working with borehole images in geothermal wells

Session 4 Quantifying geomechanical inputs from well data and rock properties

Course delivery details

  • 2pm-5.30pm BST
  • Five 3.5-hour sessions, comprising three lecture sessions and two practical sessions (one on working with borehole image logs in geothermal wells and interpreting these datasets, and the other on stress field characterisation from well data). All sessions are interactive online sessions presented over 5 days (mornings in North America and afternoons in Europe). A digital manual and exercise materials (including well logs) will be distributed before the course. Some reading and exercises are to be completed by participants off-line.
