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.

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.

High-end 3D seismic processing for geothermal fault interpretation in the Upper Rhine Graben

The Upper Rhine Graben (URG), with its deep-seated fault systems, is well known for its high geothermal potential. In order to better understand the large scale faulting and ensure viability of future geothermal projects, a 3D seismic survey was acquired in the French part of the URG during 2018. This survey was designed for covering the sites of the two operational geothermal plants of Soultz-sous-Forêts and Rittershoffen where several deep wells penetrated the URG basin and its fractured crystalline basement. This presentation shows how high-end seismic imaging was applied to improve the identification and understanding of the faulting in the area to aid geothermal resource development.

Reduce exploration and development risk with 3D joint inversion and time-lapse applications

This webinar will present a series of case studies which illustrate the integrated modeling of multiple geophysical data types over geothermal fields, to derive a geologically-reliable multi-property 3D model that consistently explains the observations of each geophysical dataset. We apply the same approach to time lapse monitoring of reservoir fluid phase evolution with 4D imaging of repeat precision gravity and Vp and Vs travel time tomography from permanent microearthquake receiver arrays.

Towards a data-driven global heat map

The accelerated adoption of geothermal energy is dependent on a number of investment risk factors, including the ability to quickly and accurately assess and rank the heat resource potential of different areas. CGG’s global heat map, developed by applying petroleum industry leading data analytics to the vast publicly available geothermal, mining, hydrocarbon and subsurface temperature datasets, provides a screening tool to identify areas for further, higher resolution investigation. Access to accurate global databases will accelerate workflows and decision-making for new entrants to the geothermal industry and for established players who seek to widen their geographic portfolio.
