Speech highlighting the importance of crustal heat flow to kerogen kinetics and thermal maturation of hydrocarbons.
The characteristics of natural geothermal reservoirs cover a wide spectrum in terms of temperature, depth, geometry, geology, and fluid chemistry.
This project seeks to perform such geostatistical analysis of data made available from the National Geothermal Database System (NGDS) for the State of Texas in order to better define the geothermal resources of a region.
The geological setting of the Williston Basin with six geothermal aquifers having temperatures ranging from 80ºC to 145ºC and access to Missouri River water for cooling is conceptually ideal for distributed, binary power development. The …
