Denmark: Additional Injector Well Drilled at 7 MWth Thisted Geothermal Plant

Danish geothermal well successfully completed (News Release)

Geothermal well Thisted-5 completed October 2017

The Thisted-5 geothermal well has just been successfully drilled and completed to a depth of 1,170 metres. Throughout the project, WellPerform, based in Copenhagen, had the leading role as project manager overseeing the engineering work and onsite supervision. Thisted-5 is the first well to be drilled and completed after the release of the geothermal licenses by DONG in 2010. The organisation was set up with Thisted Varmeforsyning as sole operator, WellPerform and Pro-Invest as Technical Advisors.

Thisted Geothermal Plant has an existing doublet (producer and injector pair) that has delivered heat for the district heating since 1984. Thisted-5 will be used as an additional injector well, which will allow for increased water production from the producer.
