Brochure Schlumberger Commitment to Geothermal Energy in Indonesia
Developing geothermal resources as a pillar of Indonesia’s energy independence and sustainable future.
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 the right conditions for 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.
High temperature, salinity, and gas content are encouraging signs for geothermal explorers but also present significant operational challenges. Mitigating or altogether avoiding 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.
Our unparalleled investment in high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) services and products provides a robust platform for geothermal resource development. Founded 40 years ago and acquired by Schlumberger in 2010, GeothermEx has worked in 70% of all the geothermal projects developed for power production worldwide. Ensure your geothermal success by leveraging this unique combination of technological innovation and practical global experience to overcome the most significant challenge in any geothermal project—rapid and cost-effective resource development.
