GeoWell

13.09.2016

An EU project on geothermal well technology

Time frame: 2016 – 2020.
Partners: Research institutions: ÍSOR (Iceland), IRIS (Norway), GFZ (Germany), TNO (the Netherlands) and BRGM (France). Industrial companies: Statoil (Norway), HS Orka (Iceland) and Akiet (the Netherlands).
Funding: European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme

GeoWell is a three-year collaborative research project aiming to develop and test reliable, cost effective and environmentally safe technologies for design, completion and monitoring of high-temperature geothermal wells.
  • Cement and sealing technologies
  • Materials and coupling of casings
  • Temperature and strain measurements in wells using fibre optic technologies to monitor well integrity
  • Development of risk assessment methods
The technology developed will be tested in laboratories and partly in real geothermal environment

The project was awarded in August 2015, and marked a milestone for IRIS Energy on geothermal energy research. IRIS is in charge of the risk assessment part of the project and will transfer methods for well integrity risk assessment for oil & gas wells to geothermal wells.
