For this thesis, a probabilistic techno-economic model is developed for deep, direct use geothermal projects in the Netherlands. As a case study, data from the future DAP doublet (TU Delft) is inserted wherein multiple scenarios are researched that model variations in well capacity, energy prices, project design, government policies, brine gas...

Geothermal energy is a relatively sustainable energy source of which the essence is to extract heat from hot subsurface rocks. Circulating fluids serve as the transport agent of heat. The contact area between the fluids and the rocks is where the relevant heat transfer occurs, i.e., where the water is heated up. In some geothermal reservoirs,...

To develop high enthalpy geothermal systems in the Netherlands, reservoirs with a depth greater than 4000 m need to be targeted. The Lower Carboniferous limestone is proposed as the main target due to its depth and wide occurrence. To investigate the potential of this formation, the physical rock properties are studied in a variety of laboratory...

This research identifies and provides a relative ranking of the parameters that control the thermal breakthrough time of a geothermal doublet. The ranking is based on simulations modelled by a three-dimensional model build in COMSOL Multiphysics with a simulation duration of 50 years. The model is a nonisothermal, isotropic, cuboid consisting of...

In the recent years, geothermal technology has received substantial attention as an alternative source of energy. However, the lack of detailed information about subsurface formations of interest often introduces significant uncertainties to the technological and economic planning of geothermal projects. As the result, some important...

This thesis aims at investigating the effect of a thermal shock of a couple of hundred degrees on the creation of the thermal microfractures and in what way the mechanical properties of volcanic rocks change. In the geothermal field, thermal microfractures can contribute to increase the permeability and produce more steam to the surface. We...

The Dutch Government is aiming for a CO2 neutral energy supply in 2050; this requires a transition from using energy from fossil fuels to using renewable energy sources. Decline in oil production in the Netherlands occurs in an epoch with an increased interest in geothermal heat production as an alternative source of energy. In the present study...

With an increased demand for renewable energy sources, geothermal developments have moved into the spotlight, including sedimentary structures. In the western part of the Netherlands, cretaceous sandstone bodies are already in use for the geothermal energy production. However, these reservoirs are generally producing water at temperatures less...
