The Danish Energy Agency has published six different reports with Best Practices Guidelines for geothermal development in Denmark, already released in 2015.

On its website, Danish company WellPerform has shared details on Best Practices Guidelines for geothermal projects in Denmark. The guidelines were published by the Danish Energy Agency (Energistyrelsen) in 2015 in six reports.

WellPerform proves quality project management, well engineering and consultancy to the industry for drilling, completion and work-over activities within the oil & gas, geothermal and mineral industries.

So far only a very limited number of geothermal projects have been successfully developed in Denmark; in large parts due to the lack of knowhow, and the difficult transition from thought to action.

To encourage stakeholders to initiate such projects and increase the odds of completion, it is paramount that experiences are shared among the community and the industry as a whole.

Here the six reports with guidelines of best practices for geothermal development, released by Energistyrelsen in 2015:

The documents should provide a good guidance for potential project owners/ managers. The documents can be accessed here.

Thanks to WellPerform for promoting these.

Attention though, it seems the documents are only available in Danish.
