Geothermal Services

A reliable source of renewable energy

Green power is an important addition to any energy portfolio, and geothermal electricity is an attractive alternative, not only to conventionally fueled power plants, but also to intermittent renewable sources such as wind and solar. Adaptable to base-load and load-following modes, alone or in combination with other energy sources, geothermal power is poised for significant growth in the coming decades. Many countries have examples of the right conditions that could lead to geothermal power development. Additionally, Enhanced (or Engineered) Geothermal Systems (EGS) offer the potential to greatly expand the geothermal resource base as breakthroughs are made in the developing technologies for this leading-edge approach.

Geothermal challenges: tackling harsh downhole conditions and improving well productivity

High temperature, salinity and gas content are encouraging signs for geothermal explorers, but also present significant operational challenges. Avoiding and/or mitigating such conditions can lead to a different kind of problem: poor well productivity. In combination, these two factors can quickly escalate the investment necessary for successful geothermal wells and projects.
