# ECLIPSE Geothermal, a Next-Generation Geothermal Simulator

### Abstract

ECLIPSE Geothermal, a fully functional geothermal numerical simulator, has all the elements necessary for geothermal reservoir modeling (heat, mass, gases, tracers, and air). We have performed validation testing using the Stanford geothermal test cases (which were used to validate all existing geothermal simulators during their early development). This numerical simulator matched each test problem as accurately as any geothermal simulator currently available. Its parallel processing capabilities can provide a 40x computational speed increase. ECLIPSE Geothermal can be used to model all types and sizes of geothermal reservoirs encountered so far in the industry.
