Department of Informatics and Mathematical Modeling and Center for Energy Resources Engineering, Technical University of Denmark, has an opportunity to provide a 3 year-PhD project entitled:
Numerical modeling of geothermal reservoirs through geophysical, geostatistical and flow data
This project is financed by The Danish Council for Strategic Research and DTU Informatics. Preferred starting date is 1. February 2012. This project will develop new technology to improve planning of energy storage in geothermal reservoirs through high-quality experiments and modelling. The technology will be based on a multidisciplinary approach combining small scale geochemistry/rock physics with large scale seismic inversion and history matching of production data. The focus will be on Danish geothermal reservoirs, because heat storage is likely to be the missing link in planning sustainable energy production in Denmark, where several sources of energy should interplay. Energy sources as waste incineration and wind are not controlled by immediate energy demands. By storing energy at low heat loss in hot aquifers we obtain an effective interplay between different sources of energy, so that the degree of coverage with sustainable energy can increase at an affordable cost.
