The International Partnership for Geothermal Technology (IPGT) is a forum for government and industry leaders to coordinate their efforts and to share information on results and best practices in geothermal development to avoid blind alleys, limit unnecessary duplication, and efficiently accelerate the advancement of geothermal technologies.
The IPGT High Temperature Tools Working Group has prepared a draft white paper to outline relevant issues surrounding high temperature tools for advanced geothermal systems. The paper will help the IPGT determine critical R&D needs.
This paper is available for external review until March 4, 2011 and is available for review here.
Representatives from Australia, Iceland and the United States signed the Charter Agreement for the International Partnership for Geothermal Technology on August 28, 2008 in Keflavik, Iceland. Switzerland signed the IPGT Charter on October 6, 2010 in Reykjavik, Iceland. In order to address critical technology needs, seven working groups were established around high-priority topic areas. These areas include: lower cost drilling, zonal isolation and packers, high temperature tools, stimulation procedures, reservoir modeling, exploration technologies, and induced seismicity.
