Struijk, E.L.M. Brunner, L.G. Veldkamp, J.G. Witmans, N. Maljers, D. van Wees, J.D. Publication year 2019 Abstract Geothermal development in aquifer settings can benefit considerably from a wealth of subsurface data acquired over the past decades by oil and gas exploration and production. In the Netherlands, this data has been gathered by the Geological Survey and has been made publicly available (www.nlog.nl). Almost a decade ago this data was used to create nationwide maps to identify prospective potential of clastic aquifers. It includes key parameters such as: depth, thickness and permeability, as well as aquifer temperature maps from a 3D temperature model of the subsurface. A techno-economic tool complemented these maps to identify prospective areas for geothermal heat extraction, which could be used for feasibility studies and site selection. In the past years, the information system and associated tools (www.thermogis.nl) have promoted geothermal development in the Netherlands, marked by a spectacular growth from a few to tens of doublets, mostly used for the heating of green houses.
