Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper a recommended workflow and methodology of geological and drilling risk management is shown and discussed with data of the Erica geothermal project in the Netherlands. Drilling boreholes for development of geothermal energy with depths of 2000 to 3500 m is a relatively new/recent activity in the Netherlands. Ten geothermal doublets hav...
Article
Full-text available
A greenhouse project in the southeastern part of the Netherlands, wants to use geothermal energy. The subsurface consists of different types of sediments with several unconformities and NW-SE oriented faults. Previous research showed that the Lower Volpriehausen Sandstone Member has the most promising hydraulic properties and temperature for geothe...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The concept of Underground Thermal Energy Storage (UTES) has evolved from theory to the point where system feasibility has been demonstrated technically and commercially in particular for low-temperature applications. These types of systems are typically referred to as Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES). One of the most common applications of AT...
Article
Full-text available
Pursuit and use of geothermal energy in the Netherlands is developing steadily. However, in order to make sound decisions, investors and insurers are requesting the probability of success of each planned geothermal project. A methodological appraisal system was developed in order to achieve a meaningful probability of success of the expected flow r...
Article
Full-text available
The prediction of reservoir temperatures and production behavior is crucial for planning a deep geothermal installation. We present a study regarding these issues using the example of a planned doublet in a Jurassic sandstone layer in the city of The Hague, The Netherlands. In the first phase, the main objective is to find out whether there is a si...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The sub-surface potential has been evaluated in a multidisciplinary manner for application of geothermal energy for heating of greenhouses near Emmen in the northeastern part of the Netherlands. The zone of interest comprises two designated areas of greenhouse development sized 100 and 180 ha respectively. In this study 3D seismic data have been in...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In 2007 a geothermal project was realized for a tomato grower in Bleiswijk, The Netherlands. This project was realized in a cretaceous sandstone reservoir at a depth of approximately 1,700 m. Since then, numerous other greenhouse owners became interested in this energy source. However, the subsurface area required for the heating of a greenhouse is...
Article
Full-text available
Aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) systems provide a method of improving the performance of more commonly installed mono-direction groundwater heating and cooling systems. Rather than using the prevailing temperature of the abstracted groundwater, ATES systems are bidirectional, therefore allowing for the interseasonal storage of low-and higher-...
Article
Full-text available
The potential for the exploration and exploitation of geothermal energy for greenhouses in Franekeradeel in the north of the Netherlands has been investigated. Available borehole and seismic data have been used for the evaluation of the subsurface. These data show that the Slochteren Formation sandstone reservoirs are very likely present at a depth...

IF Technology (IF) heeft onderzoek gedaan naar de temperatuurverdeling in de Nederlandse ondergrond tot 300 m-mv (Stolk, 2000). Het doel van het onderzoek was na te gaan in hoeverre de bodemtemperatuur informatie bevat die samenhangt met hydrologische en thermische condities in het heden en verleden. Om een aantal van de beschouwde relaties kwantit...

Zusammenfassung In Den Haag soll in naher Zukunft ein Stadtbezirk mit insgesamt 6000 Wohneinheiten über eine geothermische Dublette versorgt werden. Das Großprojekt mit einem geschätzten Finanzvolumen von 50 Mill. € ist ein Gemeinschaftsprojekt der Eneco Energy, E.ON Benelux, der Immobiliengesellschaften Vestia, Staedion, Haagwonen und der Stadt De...

Project
Investigate the feasibility of the MT and CSMT method for geothermal exploration in the Netherlands. We will try to answer question as: - Will we see a sandstone reservoir at 2 km depth? - What will be the influence of EM cultural noise? - Will we be able to estimate porosity and permeability of the reservoir? - Will we be able to see faults?
