The Geothermal Research Platform Groß Schönebeck is a reference laboratory for the development of geothermal technologies in hydrothermal reservoir rock with low permeability. Two research wells form a geothermal doublet and give access to water-bearing horizons at depths between 3,9 and 4,4 km at temperatures of 150 °C.
With the mechanical testing system (MTS) hydrostatic pressures up to 140 MPa and temperatures up to 200 °C can be simulated.
LARS is large volume experimental apparatus for the investigation of anthropogenic induces and natural occurring reservoir processes under simulated in situ conditions in the lab.
By measuring the permeability of the rock as well as the electric conductivity and pH of the pore fluid one obtains an information about the dynamics of fluid-rock interactions.
FLECAS was designed as versatile and transportable core analysis system for the investigation of consolidated and unconsolidated rocks under reservoir temperature and pressure conditions.
For our research on hydrogen storage, we operate a dedicated, separate hydrogen laboratory.
Mit der schwenkbaren Autoklaveneinheit, die mit flexiblen Probenzellen bestückt ist, werden Hydrothermalexperimente bei Temperatur- und Druckbedingungen bis 400°C und 500 bar durchgeführt.
