AAPG Low-Temperature Webinar
November 18, 2010
Low-temperature geothermal resources represent a significant opportunity for companies involved in oil and gas exploration and production. Low-temperature geothermal resources can be co-produced with oil and gas, with numerous commercial applications. This webinar provides an overview of the current state of low-temperature geothermal resources, and it presents case studies and examples of co-production with oil and gas production.
Key topics include:
- What are Low-Temperature Geothermal Resources?
- Where do low-temperature geothermal resources fit within petroleum exploration and production?
- What is co-production? When and where are low-temperature geothermal resources coproduced with oil and gas?
- What are the economics of low-temp geothermal co-production?
- Where are some of the best locations for co-production?
- Case studies and examples of low-temp geothermal and oil / natural gas co-production.
