21 Geothermal Heat Management

Thursday, 7 March
Grand Ballroom C

In this session we will explore heat management in detail from a geothermal context.   

Case studies involving heat management in the drilling

process, as well as complex temperature models for production will be discussed with the outcomes being lower Capex and Opex cost for the operators of geothermal wells.
