Education: Three Webinars on Enhanced Geothermal and Superhot Systems

The GEMex project is organising a series of information webinars on EGS and Superhot Systems.

GEMex is joint Mexican and European project that focuses on resource assessment, reservoir characterization and concept development. The project aims to adapt and further develop methods and technologies at two unconventional geothermal sites in Mexico: Acoculco and Los Humeros. These sites are located in the eastern part of the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt.

The Acoculco geothermal field is described as a high-temperature geothermal system. Two wells have been drilled and found temperatures above 300°C at depths below 1800m, but hardly any fluids. Preliminary studies consider Acoculco a candidate for the application of EGS technologies.

Los Humeros geothermal field is currently conventionally exploited with a geothermal power plant in operation since 1990: Temperatures around 380°C were found at depths below 2000m. Los Humeros holds the potential of a superhot resource.

In order to have a EU-MEX joint participation to the webinars they are scheduled
at 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM PST:
