This focused international conference and pre-conference workshop 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 for utilizing the waste heat to power (WHP) of oil and gas surface equipment is capable of converting geothermal energy from well fluids into electrical power. Generating electricity on-site in the field reduces overall project expenses, eliminates CO2 emissions, decreases dependency on the local grid, and may even qualify for state Renewable Energy Credits (RECs). Projects producing electricity using oil field wells are successfully completed in Mississippi and Wyoming. Extensive geothermal research is ongoing in the Williston Basin of North Dakota. WHP installations are widespread in manufacturing sectors. Combining surface and reservoir sources of thermal energy maximizes the opportunity for return on investment.
While the concept might sound easy, extracting heat from either below ground or surface sources, it draws on many diverse skill sets. This conference provides the necessary knowledge, procedures, and key networks for optimizing on-site electrical production for field use or to sell to the grid. State-of-art technology will be showcased. Become part of the clean energy solution by producing emission-free renewable energy while extending the life of an oil or gas field.
This year we have a two presenters to highlight: Jon Wellinghoff, Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, as the keynote luncheon speaker and Doug Hollett, Program Manager of the DOE Geothermal Technologies Program, as our evening reception presenter. A full list of presenters is online.
