FORGE Geothermal Modeling and Simulation Forum

April 15 / 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM MDT
04/15/20 11:00 AM 04/15/20 12:00 PM America/Denver FORGE Geothermal Modeling and Simulation Forum United States

The Utah FORGE (Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy) Team is pleased to announce the inaugural FORGE Modeling and Simulation Forum commencing April 15 at 11 am MDT. It is intended to be an open forum to present modeling and simulation, both completed and planned, activities being conducted by the Utah FORGE Team.

The Forum will be a recurring event (frequency to be determined) which will help to keep the Enhanced Geothermal System community updated on our activities and, most importantly, to gain the community's feedback.

The Forum will be hosted by Dr. Robert Podgorney, the modeling and simulation lead for the Utah FORGE team. Registration is required.

Utah FORGE is a dedicated underground field laboratory sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE) for developing, testing, and accelerating breakthroughs in EGS technologies to advance the uptake of geothermal resources around the world. It is located near the town of Milford in Beaver County, Utah, on the western flank of the Mineral Mountains. Investigations will commence in 2020 as the facility is being constructed and continue through 2024. Competitive funding rounds will be open for public application to attract outstanding programs of innovative research and development in geothermal engineering and science. Near term goals are aimed at perfecting drilling, stimulation, injection-production, and subsurface imaging technologies required to establish and sustain continuous fluid flow and energy transfer from an EGS reservoir.
