About the Event

Learn how customised Solenis solutions can boost your geothermal bottom line

Scaling in geothermal wells and surrounding rock formation is a significant issue to the geothermal power industry, as it can drastically decrease or halt production.  Chemical solutions have been tried in the past with variable results and involve significant risk – corrosion, human and environmental – due to the harsh and aggressive chemistry employed.

Solenis, working closely with Contact Energy, has developed a totally new approach to clean scale and return compromised geothermal wells to full capacity.  The  method combines advanced concepts from reservoir engineering, geology and pumping dynamics in combination with much safer and less aggressive chemistry.  The results have proven to be highly successful over many applications, and the technique is now an established method of restoring both production and reinjection well performance.   Dan Wilson, Senior Drilling Engineer at Contact Energy, will give an update on the use of this technique at Contact Energy’s geothermal operations and the benefits they have captured by using this novel and unique approach.

This event is for Solenis clients and companies interested to learn about what the Solenis technologies can do to boost geothermal production and extend asset life.

The event is by-invitation, please contact Andrew Dines at if you are interested in attending.
