It is great to see that this week in Iceland over 1000 people are expected to be able to connect in-person at the World Geothermal Congress 2020+1. For all the right reasons, geothermal is gaining traction as the vital baseload resource for a low-carbon energy mix. Seequent is proud of the innovation in subsurface modelling and visualisation it provides to the geothermal industry supporting over 60% of the installed electricity generation globally. Seequent has built trusted relationships within the geothermal industry ensuring the voice of the global industry is heard in the development of our technology.
However, Geothermal is evolving. Novel technologies and alternative applications (heating and cooling, agriculture/aquaculture, industrial processing, mineral extraction etc.) are receiving widespread adoption. We also see the emergence of oil and gas technologies adapted to our industry, potentially opening new geothermal applications in places previously believed impossible. As such, Seequent’s solutions are evolving too.
We are excited to announce that in our December release of Leapfrog Geothermal, it will support the creation of both ECLIPSE™ and CMG™ flow simulation grids directly from our industry-leading implicit modelling engine.
This builds on the recent integration of SEG-Y data into Leapfrog, supporting seismic data alongside other industry formats as the energy transition evolves. Our team at the WGC will have this latest interoperability on hand and would love to talk to everyone at the event. Seequent is also extremely proud to be the venue sponsor for the Women in Geothermal (WING) networking event during the WGC. Continuing our role as WING’s Global Visibility Partner.
