H033:
Conventional and Enhanced Geothermal Systems: Characterization, Integration, Stimulation, Simulation and Induced Seismicity.





Session ID#: 25235

Session Description:
Exploration and exploitation of geothermal heat provide opportunities to increase energy options, energy market flexibility, and decrease greenhouse gases. We are seeking contributions from theoretical and technological advances that address site selection, characterization & data integration, fracture stimulation, reservoir simulation, and fluid-induced seismicity. We encourage presentations on modeling tools that integrate thermal, mechanical, geophysical, chemical and hydrological processes for geothermal design and simulation, stimulation predictions and trigged induced seismicity, thermal & chemical tracers, working fluid selection and geochemical reactions with surrounding rock.
