The project aim is to perform a fully integrated approach to assess the potential of utilization Seismic Electric Effects (SEE) for exploration and development of geothermal systems, by creating a SEE numerical package to be used for improved subsurface tomography, supported and validated by laboratory experiments in France and field surveys in Norway and France

What we do

The SEE4GEO project offers a fully integrated approach to assess the potential of Seismoelectric efffects (SEE) for the exploration and development of geothermal systems, by focusing on the development of a SEE numerical package to be used for improved subsurface imaging and characterization, supported and validated by laboratory experiments and field surveys for practical application.

Why is this important?

Being able to identify pre-existing water-filled fracture networks (reservoir scale) will greatly help to (1) image and assess geothermal resources and targets, and (2) inform on and monitor stimulation successes and risk mitigation, by mapping newly activated fracture networks.

Goals


Assess a new and innovative seismoelectric effects (SEE) technique in terms of data acquisition, cost and quality for geothermal subsurface imaging and monitoring at reservoir scale:

  1. A low-cost deployment technique for imaging and monitoring of geothermal resources
  2. Leverage in-house new software modeling SEE
