USA, California: Calpine Uses 3D Visualization of Geysers EGS Project

SKUA-GOCAD Helps Creates a 3D Full-Field Reservoir Model Incorporating All Data, including Seismicity, at The Geysers Geothermal Field in Northern California (Paradigm Customer Story)

Calpine’s initial SKUA-GOCAD 3D software utilization was directed toward induced seismicity analysis, and has improved the company’s understanding of the spatio-temporal relationships between The Geysers’ water injection and induced seismicity.

Calpine now uses 3D visualization as an effective tool for conveying technical subsurface information during drilling target analyses and real-time well drilling analyses involving geoscientists, reservoir engineers and drilling specialists.

There will be a GRC Fieldtrip to witness the Calpine EGS Demonstration Project in The Geysers from the GRC Annual Meeting & GEA Geothermal Energy Expo, October 23-26, Sacramento, California.
