Geothermal and Petroleum Engineering: Where Subsurface Engineering Meet

Low and high-enthalpy geo-energy for direct-use and power generation are experiencing a resurgence in interest and investment as technology and cost learnings from the oil and gas are applied to geothermal technologies to lower capital requirements, reduce risk and expand scalability. As companies and governments increasingly commit to lower emission futures, geothermal provides a unique and potentially largely untapped resource option to provide the world with reliable and flexible low emission heating, cooling, and power. This SPE Live will delve into the background of the industries, how skills transfer between the two, and how collaboration can reshape the future of both industries.
