Thermo2Pro: Knowledge dissemination for deep geothermal exploration


The understanding of geology and petrophysical properties is necessary to develop deep geothermal projects. However, this knowledge must be shared within the professional community to be efficient. Thermo2Pro is essentially a Web tool designed to fill the gap between the information derived from R&D projects and the authorities dealing with the deep geothermal exploration in basin context. A user committee, gathering contracting authorities, local authorities, and design offices have been involved in the development of the project since its inception. The main vector for Thermo2Pro is a Web application where the user accesses the information by simulating vertical or horizontal sections, or boreholes. The information is stored in 3D regular grids. The functionalities of Thermo2Pro will be demonstrated at the end of the project (end 2013) through information related to the Trias aquifer of the Paris basin. The available parameters will be mainly a model of geometry, an estimation of porosity, and a model of temperatures. Those parameters have been acquired and inferred in the scope of the CLASTIQ-2 R&D project co-financed by the ADEME (French Environment and Energy Management Agency) and BRGM (French Geological Survey).
