de Beus, Charles (author)
Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and sequestration (CCS) can play a significant role in reducing anthropogenic CO2 emissions while allowing society to slowly phase out traditional energy sources. One of the main challenge in CCS is the current absence of a clear revenue model. One idea is to use the sequestered supercritical CO2 as a working fluid...

The Netherlands has set the ambitious goal to be CO2 neutral by 2050 and signed the Paris Treaty in 2015. The contribution of geothermal energy to reaching this goal are outlined in the Masterplan in 2018 which attempts to reduce CO2 emissions. It is imperative to enhance geothermal participation in renewable energy resources, so this thesis...

This research is intended to create an insight into the heat exchange occurring in a well and to find ideal well conditions in which the performance of the heat exchange is maximised. For demonstrating and studying these aspects the well of Grouw-01 is analysed. The well of Grouw-01 is a depleted gas well attained from Vermilion Energy and is in...

The primary reservoirs present in the Southern Chotts Basin, Central Tunisia, are located within Triassic, Permian and Ordovician units. They are mainly sourced by the Silurian -- Lower Devonian Fegaguira formation and its Hot Shale member. Late Paleozoic exhumation has eroded part of the Palaeozoic package, removing the Early Devonian --...

In a future scenario, the successful development of geothermal industry will result in the large-scale deployment of new deep geothermal projects. In highly populated areas, such as the Netherlands, such a development will lead to a dense grid of neighbouring licenses. In such a situation a new project requires careful design and planning as the...

Accurate and efficient predictions on the behavior of fluid flow and heat transport are required in the development of low-enthalpy geothermal reservoirs in fractured formations. Key challenges include the demand for high-resolution computational grids, the non-linear behavior of the system due to strong mass-heat coupling and the presence of...

Transition to cleaner energy while sustaining the heat demand necessity has always been an emphasized topic in the recent years. With the slowly declining utilization and production of natural gas in Netherlands, geothermal energy shows a promising future in providing sustainable power for heating and various applications. For majority of...

The Netherlands will need to transform her traditionally fossil fueled energy system in the coming decades to achieve the goal of reducing CO2 emissions to net-zero in 2050. Therefore, an increase in renewable energy sources as solar and wind energy in the overall energy mix will be essential. However, due to the highly variable energy...

A large fraction of hydrocarbons is recovered from gas condensate reservoirs. A major production challenge from gas condensate reservoirs is condensate dropout, as condensate liquid saturation will build up due to drawdown below dewpoint level. Condensate Gas Ratio (CGR) decrease during production is a clear indication of condensate dropout,...

Geothermal energy is generally seen as a sustainable source of energy and therefore could be part of the solution for the energy transition. However, there is still a lack of clarity about the conditions under which a geothermal system can be used sustainably. This study investigates the sustainable use of a geothermal system. The geothermal...

This report contains the results of the two thesis studies that finalise a combined MSc--programs of Reservoir Geology and Science Communication. The first part of the report comprises the multi-scale data (kilometers to meters scale) analysis of a) the large--scale architecture of the subsurface Daly Waters Arch which was obtained from seismic...

The main objective of this thesis is to assess the combined influences of specified reservoir conditions and operational parameters on the profitability of a geothermal project and on the potential for fault reactivation. The aim is to propose potential development strategies to maximize the profitability and minimize the potential for slip and...

For many decades, conventional gravitational separators have been the backbone of the fluid separation in the oil and gas industry. The stricter environment regulation for purification of the recycled water, together with a tighter profitable margin of the produced oil, requires more efficient and faster separators. Inline swirl separator uses...

Geological storage of COኼ is a crucial and upcoming technology to reduce anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Due to the buoyant characteristic of injected gas, the security of underground storage is a major concern. To asses the security of COኼ storage, an accurate prediction of the gas plume behaviour is essential. In this study, a fully...

Carbonate reservoirs are of significant importance as they host a high percentage of the world’s oil and gas reserves. They are however subject to dissolution and may be heavily karstified often resulting in large cavities which may impose major hazards in drilling and production. In many cases, difficulty remains due to poor understanding of...

As implementation of deep geothermal energy projects in the Netherlands increases, reservoir simulation for these geothermal systems stands to play a key role in understanding how these systems will behave and how large scale projects can be optimised to save cost and reduce risk. In this thesis, an extensive simulation study has been conducted...

Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery (CEOR) methods can increase the oil recovery of a reservoir to more than 60% of the volumes originally in-situ. Typical oil recoveries range from 20% to 40% of OIIP under traditional primary and secondary recovery stages. The understanding of the mechanisms that control such complex processes is essential...

With an increase in the demand for heat energy, and the growing conscience of the world to reduce CO2 emissions, the transition to cleaner energy alternatives has gained momentum. In the Netherlands, the potential for cost-effective geothermal heat extraction from sedimentary aquifers has led to the exploration of siliciclastic Triassic...

The main objective of this study is to quantify interference effects between production and injection wells for geothermal projects that operate within the same reservoir. The secondary objective is to study the time it takes for the reservoir unit to thermally recharge after production has stopped. Two reservoir simulators are benchmarked to...

More than 30% of the world’s hydrocarbon reserves are located in carbonate reservoirs, and this percentage is likely to increase, as a result of discoveries of new giant oil fields in carbonate rocks, generically named “Pre-salt layers”. However, there are still some problems in understanding karst systems that still unresolved. The karst caves...
