Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS)

Itasca has been a leader in consulting services for subsurface environments. Understanding the uncertain nature of subsurface problems, Itasca provides engineering solutions to reduce risk and increase the potential for success. The multi-disciplinary engineering team has knowledge and expertise in the analysis of geomechanical, hydrogeological, thermal, and coupled systems to better understand the reservoir stimulation for enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). Insights from microseismic monitoring, combined with the power of geomechanical modeling, provide a unique tool to help reduce risk and improve well design and site operation during reservoir stimulation and heat production in geothermal projects.

Geothermal services include:

  • Geotechnical and hydrological property assessment, data analysis, and uncertainty evaluation
  • Discrete fracture network (DFN) engineering
  • Design-assist services through interaction with other design and operation teams
  • Advanced geomechanical modeling to understand long-term reservoir behavior
  • Material assessment through inverse solution using numerical modeling tool;
  • Microseismic array design, data management, and processing
  • Forensic engineering
