Coupled Simulations of Well and Reservoir Thermal Hydraulics

Utah FORGE Modeling & Simulation Forum #4: "Coupled Simulations of Well and Reservoir Thermal Hydraulics"

Presented by: Robert Podgorney and David Andrs (INL), Pranay Asai (UofU) and Aleta Finnila (Golder)

August 19 at 11 am MDT

The forum will feature a discussion of the development of coupled well hydraulics and reservoir hydraulics simulations. These simulations are being prepared in preparation for conducting long-term operational simulations of the FORGE reservoir, where multistage stimulation and limited entry are anticipated in the injection well. The presentation will provide a summary of the well flow simulator, numerical coupling between the well and the reservoir, and provide a few preliminary examples.

Utah FORGE (Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy) is a dedicated underground field laboratory sponsored by the Department of Energy for developing, testing, and accelerating breakthroughs in Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) technologies.

This is the fourth forum of the series and is intended to have an open format to present modeling and simulation, both completed and planned, as well as activities being conducted by the Utah FORGE Team. This webinar will be recorded and will be available for viewing later.

Please note registration is required for the forum and seating is limited.
