Canada: Study Shows Tremendous Potential for Geothermal Energy in Western Alberta

Whose O&G Wells Have Geothermal Potential? (EnergyNow)

All Alberta oil and gas wells as of October 31, 2016, have been assessed for their geothermal potential (through a study facilitated by CanGEA).  There were more than 60,000 wells identified (out of nearly 600,000 wellbores in the province).

The wells are grouped into those with potential for Direct Heat (>60c), Industrial Heat (>90c) and Power Generation (>120c).  The communities near the wells are also listed.
