The 2017 GRC Geothermal Resource Decision Workshop 2 extends the successful 2016 GRC workshop on building realistic geothermal resource conceptual models to support decision risk assessments of well targeting and resource capacity, but focuses on both preliminary evaluation and the use of more detailed geoscience and engineering data available from wells to support field operations decisions. The experience of the 2016 workshop will be summarized to provide context for the integration of rock cuttings analysis, fluid geochemistry and well test results to support decisions on well design, real-time well completion and success/failure assessment at the appraisal stage following an exploration success in a >240°C volcano-hosted resource. Lectures on preliminary geoscience evaluation of <180°C fault-hosted prospects will support an exercise that will simulate a geothermal lease auction.
Like the 2016 workshop, this workshop will consist of about 50% lectures directed at the decision issues and 50% team exercises in making decisions using real data and testing them against outcomes. The teams will be assisted by coaches experienced in geothermal resource decision making. This workshop is directed at geoscientists, engineers and managers who wish to better appreciate how geothermal resource data sets and their uncertainty are used to support resource decisions. Workshop Price includes lunches on both days and a reception on Friday night.
