Our company participated in several geothermal investigations in Slovakia in 2022. We performed measurements in two phases at a 2500 m deep production well and an 1800 m deep injection well in Csilizradvány.
In the first cycle, we conducted well structure inspection, pressure gradient and flow measurements in both wells. In the second cycle, we carried out depth pressure and temperature registration with wireline technology and memory probes for several months during interaction tests in both wells simultaneously.
The aim of the tests was to determine whether more heat energy could be extracted from the wells for heating local economic facilities.
We also carried out deep drilling geophysical surveys in a geothermal exploration well in Košice, Kežmarok and Liptovský Mikuláš for the entire section up to 2500 m or more.
The surveys included electrical resistance, natural gamma, temperature, hole diameter, acoustic wave image and hole deviation measurements.
This was followed by well tests (well structure and cement bond checks, flow profile determination), hydrodynamic measurements, gas-water ratio determination and sampling in the already completed cased wells.
The aim of the research was to provide cheaper renewable heat energy to the nearby settlements and industrial facilities with thermal water.
Geothermal energy is a promising source of renewable energy that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on fossil fuels.
This energy can be used for various purposes, such as electricity generation, heating, cooling, agriculture and recreation. It has many advantages, such as high efficiency, low environmental impact, reliability and availability.
However, geothermal energy also faces some challenges, such as high initial costs, technical difficulties, geological risks and environmental issues.
Our company is committed to developing and implementing innovative solutions for geothermal energy utilization in Slovakia and beyond. We have extensive experience and expertise in geothermal exploration, drilling, testing and monitoring.
We believe that geothermal energy can play a significant role in the transition to a low-carbon economy and society.
