Geothermal Sciences

Helping deliver global geothermal potential

CGG Geothermal brings worldwide, multi-disciplinary geoscience data, technology and expertise to understand and de-risk geothermal prospects, from exploration to production. With over 130 targeted projects and 2 global resource assessments since 2011, we provide valuable intelligence in global data and analytics, resource assessment, reservoir characterization, production and monitoring.

Reduce Risk Across Geothermal Exploration, Development and Production

In already-explored hydrocarbon basins or in locations where demand for alternative energy is high, our geothermal services help you characterize the subsurface and monitor operations for optimal production and reduced risk.

    Geothermal Webinar Series

    We have a range of technical webinars on how CGG supports the geothermal industry with innovative and bespoke solutions. If you would like to view the webinar series, get in touch with us.

    Turning up the heat: Global geoscience expertise for the geothermal industry

    In addition to widely-exploited volcanic-hosted geothermal resources, there is global untapped potential in hot sedimentary basins for which oil and gas geoscience expertise is immediately relevant. CGG has experience applying geoscience expertise and data science to geothermal projects from around the world, and we look at how this could be applied more widely.


    Learn why Geotools is the software of choice for multi-physics data processing, inversion and interpretation. We demonstrate the latest features and let you know what exciting new developments are coming soon.

    3D seismic processing for geothermal fault interpretation

    The Upper Rhine Graben is well known for its high geothermal potential with its deep-seated fault systems. Learn how high-end 3D seismic imaging and processing improved the identification and understanding of faulting to aid geothermal resource development in the area.

    Geologically consistent 3D joint inversion modelling and time-lapse applications

    Learn how CGG reduces exploration and development risk with integrated modeling of multiple geophysical data types at geothermal fields, to derive geologically-reliable multi-property 3D models. The same approach is used for time lapse monitoring of reservoir fluid phase evolution with 4D imaging of repeat precision gravity and Vp and Vs travel time tomography from microearthquake receiver arrays.

    Towards a data-driven global heat map

    The ability to quickly and accurately assess and rank the heat resource potential of different areas can help accelerate geothermal workflows and decision-making. CGG’s global heat map, developed by applying petroleum industry leading data analytics to vast subsurface temperature datasets, provides a geothermal screening tool to identify and assess areas for further, higher resolution investigation.

    The use of satellite InSAR to monitor surface deformation across geothermal fields to track fluid dynamics and evolving hazards

    Fluid circulation between the recharge zone and areas of production can induce pressure variations in the subsurface and associated ground movements. Learn how InSAR can be used to monitor surface deformation and gain insight into subsurface fluid dynamics and evolving hazards.
