Who Should Attend
This e-symposium is ideal for geologists, geophysicists, engineers and other geoscientists who are involved in exploration in geothermal systems.
Due to generous support from DOE, this basic Part 1 webinar is FREE of charge. Please note that the AAPG will offer Part 2, a Self-Study Unit of additional readings, instructional materials, review questions and activities for CEU credit. This does NOT incorporate Mr. Reinhardt’s material but instead builds on the AAPG’s extensive capacity of materials and scientific information.
Objectives and Content
Part 1: Low-temperature geothermal resources represent a significant opportunity for companies involved in oil and gas exploration and production. Low-temperature geothermal resources can be co-produced with oil and gas, with numerous commercial applications. This e-symposium provides an overview of the current state of low-temperature geothermal resources, and it presents case studies and examples of co-production with oil and gas production.
The webinar will begin with the DOE Geothermal Program Manager providing a brief introduction to Tim and the Geothermal Program.
Key topics included in the presentation will be:
- What are Low-Temperature Geothermal Resources?
- Where do low-temperature geothermal resources fit within petroleum exploration and production?
- What is co-production? When and where are low-temperature geothermal resources coproduced with oil and gas?
- What are the economics of low-temp geothermal co-production?
- Where are some of the best locations for co-production?
- Case studies and examples of low-temp geothermal and oil / natural gas co-production.
Low-Temperature Geothermal resources represent a commercial, near-term opportunity for developing clean domestic energy sources and creating local jobs. One of the objectives of the GTP Low Temperature sub-program is to significantly enhance the commercial deployment of these systems. By doing so, GTP will help speed America on the path of a clean energy future, and provide a strategic diversification of activities in the DOE Geothermal program. By providing near-term benefits, the sub-program will broaden impacts and support for the Geothermal program among industry, customers, and stakeholders.
Each e-symposium consists of a one-hour live e-symposium. The one-hour live e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection.
Part 2: If you have signed up for the AAPG Self-Study Unit for CEU credit, after the live event is over, you will receive via email information about accessing the independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit.
