MEET

Multidisciplinary and multi-context demonstration of EGS exploration and Exploitation Techniques and potentials

The MEET project addresses the need to capitalise on the exploitation of the widest range of fluid temperature in enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) plants and abandoned oil wells. The project's objective is to boost the market penetration of geothermal power in Europe.

In order to do so, MEET demonstrates the viability and sustainability of EGS with electric and thermal power generation in all kinds of geological settings with four main types of rocks: granitic (igneous intrusive), volcanic, sedimentary and metamorphic with various degrees of tectonic overprint by faulting and folding.

The project focuses on the optimisation of reservoir productivity and stimulation techniques, taking advantage of the existing infrastructures, the understanding of the various geological contexts, necessary to transfer the current known EGS technology to other typical basement rock situations in Europe.
