Join us for our presentation at the AGE/BVG/FKPE Joint Workshop on Borehole Geophysics and Geothermal Energy on 22 November 2019 in Munich, Germany.
Athena Chalari, Silixa’s BDM Europe for Environmental & Industrial Applications, will be presenting on Seismic Methods for Geothermal Reservoir Characterization and Monitoring Using Fiber Optic Distributed Acoustic and Temperature Sensor (DAS and DTS).
Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) offer unique monitoring and characterization challenges. The harsh, high temperature downhole environment and heterogeneous nature of discrete hydraulic features, usually governed by discontinuous fractures and faults, requires robust measurement technology with advanced resolution capability.
Borehole DAS installations are often associated with VSP surveys. However, tomographic seismic, earthquake seismology, and microseismic applications have also been demonstrated at geothermal fields.
The spatio-temporal resolution achieved with Silixa’s distributed temperature sensors allows for characterization of hydrothermal processes as well as estimation of thermal diffusivity with depth.
Athena will present on the use of fibre optic distributed temperature and acoustic systems at both hydrothermal and EGS sites.
