Needs and requirements for high temperature instrumentation in extreme geothermal environment
It is believed that substantial power enhancement can be obtained by utilizing
superheated steam from unconventional supercritical wells drilled in high temperature
geothermal regions.
The realization of such utilization can only be achieved by using and developing the
most recent and advanced technological know-how and experience in high temperature
geothermal exploration.
There is a growing need for more advanced highly tolerant instrumentation to aid in
the evaluation of unconventional geothermal wells. To meet the instrumental
requirements, groups of experienced instrumentation developers, university
researchers and users were brought together in an attempt to develop, produce and
test new high temperature instrumentation.
The tests would be preformed in actual deep supercritical or near supercritical wells
being drilled in an international project called the Iceland Deep Drilling Project
(IDDP). The application was named HITI and was submitted as a STREP to EC in December
2004. It was marginally rejected but may be revived under the EC 7th framework. A
brief description of the plans in the proposal will be discussed along with recent
