Technical Session: " GEOTHERMICS " Nov , 27 2018 – pm

The technical session about " GEOTERMIX / GEOTHERMIE " to present the latest technologies in drilling, logging and log intepretation, with case studies in France , has taken place in the room Van Straelen of the SGF, 77 Rue Claude Bernard , Paris 75005, on Tuesday , November 27 2018 from 2 to 6 pm.

This technical session took place in close link with the joint EAGE/IGA/DGMK workshop on deep geothermal energy held in Strasbourg on November 8th-9th. Our session re-used some of the EAGE papers and proposes a different view focused on the drilling, logging and formation evaluation aspects.

Some of the public pdf of the lecturers are posted here below
