Stress profiling in Enhanced Geothermal Systems

The SPINE project is about developing a new tool and protocols to conduct stress profiling in crystalline rock for a better estimation of stimulation efficiency and induced seismicity related to the creation of subsurface heat exchangers.

The developed high temperature SIMFIP probe has the potential to provide unparalleled information of the stress  conditions along a borehole (stress profiling) by its sensitivity to full 3D-displacements during a hydrotest  in a packer interval. 



The project has received co-fund from the GEOTHERMICA project
