  • Personal Account: Stanford Geothermal Workshop

    AltaRock Energy’s Matt Uddenberg accompanied a group of staff to this year’s Stanford Geothermal Conference, where AltaRock’s Susan Petty and Trenton Cladouhos gave a presentation on the Newberry EGS Demonstration. This was Matt’s first experience with the workshop, so we asked him to ...

  • Dynamic simulation and 2D multiple scales and multiple sources within basin geothermal field

    In order to accurately describe the geothermal field within a basin, it is necessary to divide it into the normal geothermal field and additional geothermal field. For the accuracy by describing of the additional geothermal field, grids need to be increased. Traditional unequal interval difference method can be used to solve this problem, which has to increase grids within the unnecessary area, ...

  • Artificial geothermal energy potential of steam-flooded heavy oil reservoirs

    This paper explores the concept of harnessing geothermal energy from heavy oil fields that have undergone steam flooding and so accumulated substantial heat from steam injection. Once the steam flooding process reaches economic cut-off resulting from high water cut and/or high steam-to-oil ratio, the reservoir would be abandoned, leaving behind stored energy in the form of heat. From this point, ...

  • Modeling geothermal wells using SVHeat and SVFlux

    Numerical modeling of geothermal processes has received increased attention in recent years. The process of installing geothermal heating systems in residential homes and cottages is one application of numerical models. These systems typically involve drilling between one and three wells on a particular property. Heat exchangers then act as a pump and remove heat from the ground in order to heat ...

  • A BME solution of the stochastic three-dimensional Laplace equation representing a geothermal field subject to site-specific information

    This work develops a model of the geothermal field in the Nea Kessani region (Greece) by means of the Bayesian maximum entropy (BME) method, which describes the temperature variations across space in the underground geological formations. The geothermal field is formed by a thermal reservoir consisting of arcosic sandstones. The temperature distribution vs depth was first investigated by the ...

  • A necessary condition for optimum Rankine cycle power plants

    Consumers pay more for electricity than necessary partly because commercial power plant operating criteria are not universally valid. Although such plants are commonly designed to provide electricity at least cost for given conditions, operating criteria lack a rigorous thermodynamic basis. The current empiricism alone costs US consumers billions of dollars per year. This dilemma exists because ...
