WP 1.04: Geothermal Exploitation Knowledge and Skills

In this work package, our trainers delivered training on 

 'Geothermal Reservoir and Production Engineering Knowledge and Skills'.

It was a 2-weeks training to teach the basics of reservoir and production engineering for geothermal reservoirs. To this end a combination of lectures, exercises, assignments and background reading was provided.

course components

  • Basics of geothermal systems and reservoir engineering and reservoir geo-mechanics
  • Flow measurements and production testing
  • Well testing procedures for reservoir characterization
  • Numerical geothermal reservoir modelling

The target group of the course are Master Students, PhD students and Industrial professionals. Participants should have basic knowledge about reservoir geology, flow mechanics, and mathematical modeling. Examples of sufficient prior educational background include students with a BSc degree in Petroleum Engineering, Geophysics, Mining, Geology, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics.
