A trend seen in many geothermal projects in the Netherlands is that the thermal power of a finalised project is different than expected beforehand. To understand where this comes from, we have compared the forecasted and actual reservoir parameters and performance of several geothermal projects in the Slochteren Formation. This provided us with insights on what parameters cause this mismatch, leading to improvements that can be done to the feasibility method to more correctly estimate the thermal power of a geothermal project. In this lecture we will share our lessons learnt with you.
