DSF Geotermi DK

This research project focuses on increasing our knowledge of the Danish subsurface geothermal res-ervoirs, the most critical part in the evaluation of exploitation possibilities. Important parameters are depth to reservoir, thickness and permeability, and temperature.

All relevant available geological and geophysical data will be analyzed and new data generated with the focus on defining and characterizing potential geothermal reservoirs in the Danish area.

Geological and geophysical models will be developed for the understanding of lateral and vertical variations in reservoir quality and temperature. Areas of special interest, based on a combination of favorable geological conditions and heating demands, will be selected and subject for detailed inves-tigations. This applies e.g. to the greater Copenhagen area and the Øresund region. Results will in-clude maps showing reservoir depth, thickness, temperatures and resources and will be available on a user friendly GIS platform intended to stimulate also local interest.

The Project is coordinated by GEUS.

The GFZ Thermal Petrophysics Lab provided measurements of thermal and other petrophysical rock properties on selected drill core samples.
