Ladies and Gentlemen,

Both in Germany and other countries, the huge potential
of geothermal energy is still largely untapped. Technical chal-
lenges involved in the exploitation of geothermal reservoirs,
uncertainties concerning prospecting and the risk of seismic
events are some of the reasons why the development of geo-
thermal energy is less dynamic than expected.

The regulatory framework in Germany is, however, currently
very good: the Renewable Energy Act, the market incentive
programme and KfW credits for covering prospecting risks
enable the efficient implementation of geothermal projects.
But time is short - not only owing to the imminent expiry of
the Early Starter Bonus, due in 2015, but also because the
geothermal energy industry needs to demonstrate that it is able
to make a major contribution to covering energy demands. The
dynamic which results from this offers companies at home
and abroad numerous possibilities to become active along
the value-added chain.

The 6th International Geothermal Conference offers the perfect
setting for finding out more about the latest geothermal devel-
opments and for making valuable international business con-
tacts. Lots of scope for discussions, an inviting atmosphere
and plenty of time for personal meetings make the conference
an ideal networking event. Register for the IGC 2010 today –
we look forward to welcoming you!

Short Course

Principles of exploiting geothermal reservoirs

Chair: Dr. Jochen Schneider, Enerchange

In	collaboration	with	the	Drilling	School	Celle	
      State Certified Technical School, Germany

The	Short	Course	"Principles	of	exploiting	geothermal	reser-
voirs"	will	provide	an	in-depth	overview	of	the	most	important	
challenges	and	steps	related	to	geothermal	drilling.	Starting	
with	the	requirements	placed	on	drilling	sites,	drilling	equip-
ment	and	drilling	planning,	to	piping	and	aspects	of	cost	
optimisation,	this	event	provides	a	concise,	practical	introduc-
tion	to	drilling	technology	and	deep	drilling.

The	short	course	therefore	not	only	provides	excellent	prepara-
tion	for	the	conference	the	following	day,	it	is	also	a	perfect	
complement	to	the	practice-related	workshops	on	the	afternoon	
of	19th	May	and	the	field	trips	on	21st	May.

Workshop III
Geothermal power plant engineering

Chair:		 r. Hartwig Schröder, enpros consulting
       Kathrin Rohloff, TU Hamburg-Harburg
Both	in	hydro-geothermal	applications	and	in	HFR	systems	
for	the	use	of	low-enthalpy	geothermal	resources,	ORC	and	
Kalina	are	to	date	the	only	technologies	available	for	electricity	
generation	in	Germany.	Both	technologies	are	based	upon	the	
use	of	cyclic	processes,	the	further	optimisation	of	which	could	
increase	the	efficiency	of	geothermal	power	plants.

In	the	geothermal	power	plant	engineering	workshop,	inter-
national	speakers	will	give	lectures	with	a	practical	orientation	
on	designing	low-enthalpy	geothermal	power	plants	and	the	
opportunities	to	optimise	power	plant	processes.

Official languages of workshop III are English/ German

    Workflow with Petrel and ECLIPSE for an optimised
    reservoir exploitation and geothermal risk mitigation

    This	workshop	provides	an	intro-	
    duction	to	software-supported		              Special	workshop	with	
    geothermal	reservoir	characterisa-	          reduced	participation	fee
    tion.	Using	a	geothermal	reservoir	
    model	as	a	basis,	participants	will	understand	the	benefits		
    of	using	Petrel	modeling	and	ECLIPSE	simulator	software		
    (to	accurately	&	efficiently	char	 cterise	their	reservoir)	for	
    miti	 ating	drilling	and	project	risks.	

    Through	an	interactive	dialogue	with	Schlumberger	experts,	
    an	end-to-end	geothermal	workflow	will	be	defined,	starting	
    with	3D-seismic	data	interpretation,	to	geological	and	struc-
    tural	modeling	to	reservoir	simulation.	The	participants	will	
    gain	a	good	understanding	of	how	such	a	workflow	and	the	
    results	generated	therein	can	support	a	more	robust	decision	
    making.	This	is	especially	important,	when	it	comes	to	target	
    definition,	drilling	path	and	well	placement,	the	most	cost-
    intensive	and	risky	phases	of	every	deep-geothermal	project.

Geothermal energy in practice

First-hand	experiences	are	particularly	valuable.	Therefore,	as		
an	extension	of	the	IGC	2010	events,	we	are	organising	two		
field	trips	which	will	offer	attendees	and	interested	parties	the		
chance	to	meet	with	geothermal	project	developers,	to	
exchange	experiences	and	to	gain	knowledge	of	geothermal	
engineering	in	practice.

Field trip I: EGS research project at Soultz-sous-Forêts, France

                       The	destination	of	this	field	trip	is	the	
                       European	EGS	research	project	at	Soultz-
                       sous-Forêts.	This	geothermal	power	plant	
                       uses	as	a	reservoir	a	stimulated	fracture	
                       system	approx.	5,000	meters	under-
                       ground	between	three	wells	in	the	crystal-
                       line	rock	of	the	Upper	Rhine	rift.	Water	is	
                       pumped	down	the	injection	borehole	and	
here	is	heated	up	to	approx.	200	°C,	then	pumped	back	to	sur-
face	through	two	production	wells.	Following	a	successful	circu-
lation	test	in	2005,	the	construction	of	a	pilot	power	plant	was	
pushed	forward.	During	the	first	phase,	two	different	pumps	
were	installed	and	a	1.5	MW	ORC	power	plant	was	constructed	
which	has	been	connected	to	the	grid	since	2008.

Departure: by	bus	in	front	of	the	Freiburg	Concert	Hall

Field trip II: Geothermal power plant at Landau

                       The	second	field	trip	in	connection	with	
                       IGC	2010	will	take	participants	to	the	geo-
                       thermal	power	plant	located	just	to	the	
                       south	of	the	town	of	Landau	in	the	federal	
                       state	of	Rhineland-Palatinate.	The	system	
                       uses	two	wells	which	run	to	a	depth	of	
                       3,000	metres	(3,300	drilling	metres).	Hot	
                       water	at	a	temperature	of	almost	160°C	is	
pumped	up	the	production	well	and	first	used	to	generate	elec-
tricity.	The	remaining	heat,	with	a	temperature	of	70	°C	to	80	°C,	
is	then	fed	into	a	district	heating	network.	By	a	second	well	the	
chilled	thermal	water	is	re-injected	in	the	reservoir.	The	first	
preparations	for	the	project	began	in	mid	2003,	and	commissio-
ning	of	the	plant	followed	in	2007.

Permission	for	continuous	operation	has	been	delayed	following	
two	seismic	events	close-by	in	August	and	September	2009.

Departure:	by	bus	in	front	of	the	Freiburg	Concert	Hall	at	8.30	am	
Arrival:	at	the	Freiburg	Concert	Hall	approx.	3.30	pm
