Canada: Lecture on Directional Drilling for Deep Geothermal Energy Systems

Public Lecture Series - Directional Drilling and Magnetic Ranging Services for Geothermal Energy Development (University of Waterloo)

Wednesday, July 5, 10:30am-11:30am, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

Speaker: Clinton Moss, President, Marksman Ranging Technologies, Scientific Drilling

Precision drilling and wellbore placement techniques have yielded significant improvements in oil and gas extraction but in Canada they have not yet been utilized to improve the technical and economic feasibility of deep geothermal energy systems. 

This talk will review the state of the art in precision directional drilling and discuss how these techniques may decrease the capital cost and increase the operating efficiency of deep geothermal systems in Canada.
