A FREE webinar offered as part of the Solenis InSights webinar series.
Date: June 10, 2021
Time: 5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
Duration: 1 Hour
The blocking of geothermal reinjection wells by silica-based deposits reduces well permeability and, ultimately, the generation capacity of the geothermal power plant. Conventional well stimulation techniques require a well to be taken out of service for cleaning. In addition to downtime negatively affecting plant profitability, the chemicals used for cleaning are costly and corrosive and pose significant health and safety risks for plant personnel. Additionally, taking a well out of service can result in well stressing.
During this webinar, a novel silica removal technique developed by Solenis will be discussed. Unlike conventional well stimulation techniques, this new approach does not require a well to be taken out of service for cleaning. Significant and sustained restoration of well permeability has been observed in numerous commercial applications using the new technique, offering geothermal power producers an alternative solution with enhanced benefits.
