The annual Stanford Geothermal Workshop is taking place at Stanford University in California, February 11-13, 2013.

The annual Stanford Geothermal Workshop is taking place at Stanford University, February 11-13, 2013.

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.

The event has established itself as a prime event for the industry with a particular focus on research and technical elements.

The topics for this upcoming event and papers that will be presented on recent research relating to geothermal reservoirs include:

  • Case Studies: reservoir response to production, effects of injection, scaling characteristics
  • Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS): current and future activities
  • Engineering Techniques: reservoir simulation, empirical methods, well tests, tracers
  • Field Management: strategies for exploitation, injection, scale inhibition
  • Exploration: geophysics, geochemistry, geology, heat flow studies, outflows
  • Drilling and Well Bore Flows: well stimulation, bore flow modeling, hydro-fracturing, scaling
  • Low Enthalpy Systems: applications of heat pumps, hot dry rock technology
  • Geosciences: application of geophysics, geochemistry, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics.
