Data and modeling techniques in geothermal exploration form the basis for reservoir engineering, and developing an exploration strategy. Data and modeling techniques go hand in hand during all stages of geothermal development.
Data and modeling techniques play a key role in geothermal exploration, reservoir engineering and development. Even after a geothermal area has been developed and energy is being produced data and modeling techniques are used for the optimization and sustainable utilization of the reservoir.
