Geothermal Co-Production Workshop

This event is run by a third-party partner


Following on from their successful 'Technology Transfer Workshop', CanGEA are back again with a new, exciting workshop designed to provide yet more information on the ever growing geothermal industry.

The Geothermal Co-Production Workshop will focus on the viable options for Geothermal/Petroleum energy co-generation. It will discuss how we can offer sustainable conversions of existing Oil & Gas infrastructure into Geothermal energy generation utilizing hot production water resources already at the surface from hydrocarbon extraction.

Some of the benefits of Co-Production are;

    •    Offset expensive and wasteful water disposal costs
    •    CO2 credits
    •    Opportunity to increase well and land value with added profits
    •    Reduce Taxpayer Orphan Well liability if used in production
    •    Continue Oil & Gas royalties from wells that continue to produce
    •    Create jobs and retain employees
    •    Clean usable power and heat to remote locations with transmission costs for off grid diesel.



The workshop will run between 9.00am - 4.30pm (MT), and will include topics as diverse as;

  • Geothermal optimization of heat and power 
  • Co-Production Facilities & Turbines
  • Heat Transfer Equipment
  • Reservoir Engineering for Geothermal Applications

To register for the workshop please visit the CanGEA website found here.



Following the workshop will be an informal networking event running from 4.30pm - 6.30pm MT.

This will give attendees a chance to discuss the themes raised in the workshop and share ideas amongst each other. To register for the Networking Session please visit here.
