Science & Technology: Patent Awarded for Scalable Geothermal Power Scheme

Method and Apparatus for Repurposing Well Sites for Geothermal Energy Production (United States Patent Office)

United States Patent Application: 20190128567 - May 2, 2019
Inventor: Redfern, John.
Applicant: Eavor Technologies Inc., Calgary, Canada

A method and system for capturing geothermal energy. Injection and production well pairs in a geothermal zone are connected with a power generation apparatus between the production well of one well pair and the injection well of an adjacent well pair in a subterranean closed loop daisy chain configuration.

Fluid circulated through the loop and the power generation apparatus recover subterranean heat energy.

Specification is also disclosed in respect of application of the technology to repurpose an unused or suspended oilfield.
