In 2021, the first full scale high-temperature aquifer thermal energy storage (HT-ATES) system became operational in Middenmeer, the Netherlands. The system is operated by ECW Energy and realized within the framework of the GEOTHERMICA HEATSTORE project. A dedicated monitoring program, including distributed heating sensors (distributed...

The induced seismicity in the Groningen gas field, The Netherlands, presents contrasted spatio temporal patterns between the central area and the south west area. Understanding the origin of this contrast requires a thorough assessment of two factors: (1) the stress development on the Groningen faults and (2) the frictional response of the...

This paper describes and deploys a workflow to assess the evolution of seismicity associated to injection of cold fluids close to a fault. We employ a coupled numerical thermo-hydro-mechanical simulator to simulate the evolution of pressures, temperatures and stress on the fault. Adopting rate-and-state seismicity theory we assess induced...

The use of geothermal energy in Europe is expected to grow rapidly over the next decades, since this energy resource is generally abundant, ubiquitous, versatile, low-carbon, and non-intermittent. We have expanded and adapted the integrated assessment model TIAM-ECN to more adequately reflect geothermal energy potentials and to better represent...

In the geothermal energy domain, it is common practice to drill a doublet (i.e. an injection and production well pair) system for heat production from the subsurface. Injector-producer spacing typically varies between 1 to 2 km. This well spacing distance is usually chosen through engineering judgement. The concept of drilling doublet systems is...

Geothermal energy aids in achieving ambitions for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by contributing to a more sustainable energy mix. In particular, geothermal energy in the Netherlands can play an important role in providing a sustainable supply for domestic and industrial heat demand. However, just like with any large scale industrial...

We implement a Coulomb rate‐and‐state approach to explore the nonlinear relation between stressing rate and seismicity rate in the Groningen gas field. Coulomb stress rates are calculated, taking into account the 3‐D structural complexity of the field and including the poroelastic effect of the differential compaction due to fault offsets. The...

Met dit rapport geven TNO en EBN de eerste inzichten in de voordelen van de toepassing van de play-based portfoliobenadering van geothermie. De benadering streeft een optimale ontwikkeling na van de diepe ondergrond. Ze maakt gebruik van de meerwaarde van het in samenhang ontwikkelen van de publieke ondergrond, de warmtenetten en de bovengrondse...

In the Netherlands, over 190 gas fields of varying size have been exploited, and 15% of these have shown seismicity. The prime cause for seismicity due to gas depletion is stress changes caused by pressure depletion and by differential compaction. The observed onset of induced seismicity due to gas depletion in the Netherlands occurs after a...

Indonesie heeft potenttieel veel aardwarmte, die gebruikt kan worden om elektriciteit op te wekken. Daarvan wordt nog maar een klein deel geexploiteerd. De Indonesische overheid wil in korte tijd die hoeveelheid verdriedubbelen. Het project ' GEOCAP' helpt het land hierbij. Eind 2014 ging dit project van start

In the production well of a low-enthalpy geothermal doublet hot water is pumped from reservoirs at about 50-1007deg;C. After passing through a heat exchanger, the cold water is re-injected at about 20-357deg;C in the injection well into the reservoir, which initially has the same temperature as the produced water. Under some circumstances, this...

We evaluated the implications of hydraulic stimulation in a Dutch context for low permeability clastic aquifers at a depth of 2000 to 4000 m, whose transmissivity has been mapped in the framework of the Dutch subsurface information system on geothermal energy in the Netherlands. For the simulation and well layout we adopt long horizontal well...

Tensile fraccing in non-critically stressed tectonic environments, such as occur in large parts of the Netherlands, allows stimulation with a negligible level of seismicity. In this paper we analyse the performance of two tensile hydraulic stimulation strategies, for geothermal systems at large depth. In a reference case with reservoir...

The GEISER (Geothermal Engineering Integrating Mitigation of Induced SEismicity in Reservoirs) project is co-funded by the European Commission to address the mitigation and understanding of induced seismicity (IS) in geothermal engineering. The aim of the project is to contribute to the improvement of the concept of EGS by investigating the role...

The use of geothermal energy through implementation of low enthalpy geothermal production systems for both electricity and heating has been growing rapidly in Europe. Geothermal activities can take considerable advantage of a wealth of existing oil and gas data. It is a major challenge to put this data and derived subsurface structural,...

The Iberian Chain is a wide intraplate deformation zone formed by the tectonic inversion during the Pyrenean orogeny of a Permian-Mesozoic basin developed in the eastern part of the Iberian Massif. The N-S convergence between Iberia and Eurasia from the Late Cretaceous to the Lower Miocene times produced significant intraplate deformation. The...

Current advances in finite element computer codes and increase in computer power theoretically allow quantitative modelling of the geomechanical effects of hydrocarbon depletion from reservoirs. Here we show that it is technically possible to incorporate the full complexity of the 3D geological structure of a reservoir including faults into...
