SMU conference aims to spur development of geothermal production in oil and gas fields
Date:2/19/2013

DALLAS (SMU) SMU's renowned Geothermal Lab will host its sixth Geothermal Energy Utilization Conference March 12-14 on the SMU campus in Dallas. Jon Wellinghoff, chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, will be the keynote speaker and Doug Hollett, program manager of the U.S. Department of Energy Geothermal Technologies Program, will speak at an evening reception.

The conference will advance the understanding of technology that allows the production of emission-free energy while extending the life of an oil or gas field developing a sedimentary basin into a total energy solution. The conference (and pre-conference workshop on March 12) bring together leaders from business, engineering, finance, law, and research to explore specific topics relevant to capturing energy that is often overlooked or discarded during oil and gas production.

The same technology that can power oil and gas surface equipment from waste heat (WHP) also is capable of converting waste fluids from oil and gas wells into electrical power. Both technologies have proven applications in oil and gas fields in Mississippi and Wyoming, and WHP installations are widespread in manufacturing. Generating electricity on-site in an oil and/or gas field reduces overall project expenses, eliminates CO2 emissions, decreases dependency on the local electrical grid and may qualify for state Renewable Energy Credits (RECs).

David Blackwell, SMU's Hamilton Professor of Physics and an internationally recognized expert in geothermal energy, said, "Collaborative research between UT Austin's Bureau of Economic Geology and SMU's Geothermal Laboratory has dramatically advanced the understanding of unconventional reservoir thermal capacity within Texas oil and gas fields. The quantities of heat that can be extracted from these reservoirs are more measurable than previously stated, and the estimated pricing of this renewable electricity using geothermal tech
