34th Stanford Geothermal Workshop

Stanford, CA USA
February 9-11, 2009

The annual Stanford Geothermal Workshop aims to bring together engineers, scientists and managers involved in geothermal reservoir studies and developments. The workshop provides a forum for the exchange of ideas on the exploration, development and use of geothermal resources.

Papers will be presented on recent research relating to geothermal reservoirs including:

  • Case Studies: reservoir response to production, effects of injection, scaling characteristics
  • Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS): current and future activities
  • Engineering Techniques: reservoir simulation, empirical methods, well tests, tracers
  • Field Management: strategies for exploitation, injection, scale inhibition
  • Exploration: geophysics, geochemistry, geology, heat flow studies, outflows
  • Drilling and Well Bore Flows: well stimulation, bore flow modeling, hydro-fracturing, scaling
  • Low Enthalpy Systems: applications of heat pumps, hot dry rock technology
  • Geosciences: application of geophysics, geochemistry, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics.
