Featured article: Borehole damaging under thermo-mechanical loading in the RN-15/IDDP-2 deep well: towards validation of numerical modeling using logging images

Read the full article hereIn this article, Peter-Borie et al. investigate the causes of wellbore damage deep below the Earth's surface. Their findings suggest damage occurs due to a combination of high thermal loading, high thermal flux and overpressure in the wellbore.

Aims and scope

Geothermal Energy – Science, Society and Technology focuses on fundamental and applied research needed to deploy technologies for developing and integrating geothermal energy as one key element in the future energy portfolio. Contributions include geological, geophysical, and geochemical studies, exploration of geothermal fields, reservoir characterization and modeling, development of productivity-enhancing methods, and approaches to achieve robust and economic plant operation. Geothermal EnergyScience, Society and Technology serves to examine the interaction of individual system components while taking the whole process into account, from the development of the reservoir to the economic provision of geothermal energy.

Geothermal Energy & Geothermal Energy Science merger
