Greenhouse horticulture is a key sector in the Netherlands, significantly contributing to the economy and society but also heavily reliant on natural gas, leading to substantial CO2 emissions. The sector, in partnership with the government, aims to achieve climate neutrality by 2040 as part of the Energy Transition Covenant for Greenhouse...

In this multidisciplinary project several aspects of geosciences are combined. The regional geology background was summarized and linked to the borehole data.<br/>Multiple tests were conducted on the well to answer several questions. The slug test indicated that the fracture is still open and essentially confirmed that it is a shear fracture,...

Geothermal energy can be promising to help the energy transition. Warm water is pumped up from a geothermal well and after it is cooled down, the cold water is reinjected into the hot aquifer underground. The temperature change could cause chemical balances to be disturbed and result in precipitation on the porous medium of the aquifer. This...

The Netherlands has agreed, by signing the Paris Agreement, to be climate-neural by 2050. To reach this goal, many large-scale renewable energy projects need to be developed in the coming years using for example wind, geothermal or solar energy. The problem with these projects is that they require large amounts of land and are especially needed...

Revealing an optimal geothermal development strategy attempt with long-term sustainability (upcoming 100 years) based on a real 3D model derived from seismic data is considered one of the main contributions of this research study. The heat extraction and thermal recharge of the reservoir must be in balance to extend the productive lifetime of...

The data assimilation process for geothermal reservoirs often relies on well data which primarily offers insights into the immediate vicinity of the borehole. However, integrating geophysical methods can provide valuable information beyond well proximity, possibly enhancing reservoir predictions. Electromagnetic methods can be sensitive to the...

The Bedretto Laboratory, located within the Rotondo granite, conducts stimulations of the host rock to investigate the possibility of enhanced geothermal energy and tries to better understand the risk of induced seismicity. Seismic anisotropy plays an important role when processing seismic data, making its characterization essential in such a...

Society is facing a huge challenge in switching the energy sectors dependence on fossil fuels into an energy sector using mostly renewable energy sources. The switch towards using more sustainable energy sources is known as the energy transition. The goal of the energy transition is to lower the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions emitted by the...

Natural fractures play a crucial role in many sustainable subsurface applications, particularly in reservoirs with low primary porosity and permeability. Therefore, fracture analysis has become a fundamental aspect of geosciences, often starting with fracture interpretation from borehole image logs. It has been widely recognized that...

In the geothermal exploration well, NLW-GT-01, in the West Netherlands Basin, a very tight reservoir with low porosity (≤5.0%) and matrix permeability (≤ 0.1mD) has been encountered in the Main Buntsandstein Subgroup. The impact of natural fractures, which can significantly impact fluid flow in tight reservoirs, has been studied. However, there...

van Heel, Floris (author)
Hot water pumped out of the ground for purposes of geothermal energy extraction cools down after it is used in a heat exchanger. The now cold water contains minerals that undergo a shift in chemical equilibrium. This may cause the minerals to come out of solution and become sediments. When pumping the cold water back into the porous ground,...

The level of advancement in the understanding of the mechanical properties of volcanic rocks is comparatively lower than that of sedimentary rocks. As part of the SUCCEED Project (Synergetic Utilisation of CO2 Storage Coupled with Geothermal Energy Deployment), which aims to investigate the feasibility of injecting captured and produced CO2 into...

To deal with the pressure on urban energy infrastructures, renewable urban planning is on the rise and ambitious sustainability targets have been set to transform cities. Although these targets have resulted in many sustainable policies, the implementation of sustainability policies is lagging, hindering the energy transition. One such case, is...

Energy poverty is an increasingly important issue. While vulnerable households are especially at risk in the energy transition, energy poverty effects of the transition are unknown. In Delft, a district heating network based on geothermal energy is planned. The distributive justice aspects of heat networks in the heating transition remain...

The United Nations’ Paris Agreement forces nations and industries to transition from conventional hydrocarbon-based energy sources to more sustainable and less-emitting alternatives such as geothermal energy. Geothermal doublets are used to provide a source of green heat to greenhouses and residential buildings. In industry, reservoir simulators...
