DEEP DIRECTIVITY 1 – GEOTHERMAL SYSTEMS
DDS_1 is a Thermodynamic Machine planned and realized in the underground in the minimal details to provide in the end stage exactly the thermal/electrical efficiency calculated in the planning phase with less than 5% uncertainty in the components functionality.
All technological components and applications are available in the oil industry and no detail il left to undefined uncertainty.
This project proposal is the result of years of projects observations and realizations and has been conceived choosing one of the many options based on the probability of success considering the theory (thermal efficiency optimization), the technical operational feasibility of the oil exploration industry and the cost/efficiency factor.
The most important feature is the possibility to implement projects that can be realized in almost any geological environment.
This kind of geothermal projects has been called: “Deep Directivity Systems”.
These can be subdivided into serial and parallel systems.
The present option is a “serial” model. “Parallel” models present in the actual situation major technical risks.
Parallel models as described in our patent proposals can be developed in the future on the base of the experience acquired after the realization of a serial project.
Every scenario for potential failures and has been examined and the relative solution to correct the defect has been implemented. Therefore lack of efficiency can be overcome with supplemental parallel wing to the main flow lines.
CT drilling can be used to intersect target zones.
If this is not possible we can consider “soft” stimul-operations.
These allow high permeability fluid flow through fractures from CT-1 to CT-2 and CT-3 to CT-4.
Flow through fractures allows higher thermal efficiency but will decrease hydraulic
efficiency requiring higher power consumption for the injection pumps at the surface.
To increase thermal efficiency and consequently possibly decrease the overall well
length (CSG, CT/slim drilling sections), realization of “Lung Areas” (LA) can be considered
This will be possible after testing the formation while drilling.
Also the thermal efficiency of LA can be tested on the drilling process.
Nominal diameters are those of the oil drilling industry DP 8″ 1/2, CT 3″ 1/2 etc .
Changes in the drilling plan can be decided after test and rerun thermodynamic simulation .
