SPE Workshop: Bridging the Gap Between Geothermal and Oil & Gas
Geothermal energy for direct-use, power and electricity generation is experiencing a resurgence in interest and investment, particularly as the world pivots to lower-carbon energy sources. The oil and gas industry has made several technological leaps in recent years and the implications of the associated cost advantages could be a powerful catalyst to promoting the scalability of the geothermal industry by lowering capital requirements and reducing risk.
As companies and governments increasingly commit to lower emission futures, geothermal energy provides a unique, and potentially largely untapped, resource offering the world reliable and flexible low emission heating, cooling and baseload power.
This workshop brings together subject matter experts from the geothermal and oil and gas industries, industry leaders, academia, policy makers, entrepreneurs and investors to examine the potential of geothermal energy in a lower-emission world and discuss the key technical and non-technical elements that are needed to expand scalability for low emission geo-energy direct-use and power.
