Call open for project proposals on Well Technology

A call for project proposals has been opened by TKI Nieuw Gas specifically directed to development and realistic testing of innovative well-technology to contribute to the energy transition, such as for geothermal energy, CO2-storage and energy storage. The call closes on 28 January 2020 and more information (in Dutch) is found via the following webpage.

UDG Seminar

On October 1, 2019 a half-day seminar on Ultra Deep Geothermal Energy is going to take place. During this seminar the community as organized out of the Green Deal on Ultra Deep Geothermal Energy will give an update to its stakeholders on the status of the exploration, development and related activities.

Public results of SCAN program
The program Seismische Campagne Aardwarmte Nederland (SCAN, in english: Seismic Campaign Geothermal Energy Netherlands) is in execution since beginning of 2019 by EBN and TNO. The goal is, particularly for areas with a low data density, to improve the data position and increase the knowledge on the subsurface, in order to enable estimates where in the Dutch subsurface there is potential for geothermal heat production. Furthermore, the knowledge that is generated may be helpful to accelerate the development of projects on geothermal heat production.
From end of Q2 2019 existing (Mining Law) data which has been used, new data which has become available, and final reports of the different studies, all as a result of the SCAN program, are being made public via the following page.
