Repaso al estado del arte de los yacimientos, su exploración y el aprovechamiento de los recursos geotérmicos en el mundo

La universidad californiana de Stanford celebra entre los días 24 y 26 de febrero próximo su 39º taller anual sobre geotermia, en el que hace un repaso general al estado del arte de esta energía renovable.  Se adjunta el programa provisional y algunos de los papers disponibles.  El evento reúne a ingenieros, científicos y gestores de todo el mundo que participan en estudios de yacimientos y proyectos geotérmicos. Pretende ser un fórum para intercambiar ideas sobre exploración, desarrollo y aprovechamiento de los recursos geotérmicos.
Los temas a debatir se concentran en:
  • Casos de estudio: respuesta de los yacimientos a la producción, los efectos de inyección y características  de la ampliación.
  • Sistemas geotérmicos estimulados (EGS): actividades actuales y futuras
  • Técnicas de ingeniería: simulación de yacimientos, métodos empíricos, tests y trazadores
  • Gestión de campo: estrategias para la explotación, inyección.
  • Exploración: geofísica, geoquímica, geología, estudios de flujo de calor, salidas
