Well Construction & Completion

This session will focus on advanced materials and technologies providing well integrity, during well construction, repairs and well monitoring throughout the well life cycle. These may include but are not limited to new cementitious technologies for EGS and ultra-high temperature applications in super-hot geothermal wells; heat pump or hot rock technologies where materials are subjected to constant thermal shock conditions; materials for HT electronic components; high-temperature corrosion-resistant metal, coatings, and elastomeric materials; field application of these and other relevant technologies and methods providing well integrity under geothermal environments. The session will welcome all geothermal material research, research and development work focused on new well integrity solutions, and field tests related to geothermal well durability.
