Chair: Hans-Gert Linzer (RAG-Energy), Birgit Müller (KIT Karlsruhe), Frank Schilling (KIT Karlsruhe)
Predicting subsurface reservoir quality is the main challenge in drilling economic geothermal wells or storage wells. Reservoir quality is also a key issue of injection wells to avoid high injection pressures with risk of induced seismicity. What are the research needs for geothermal reservoir prediction and environmentally safe artificial reservoir improvement?
