STIMULATION AND TESTING OF THE MERKSPLAS-BEERSE I WELL

Objective

THE KARST IN NORTHERN BELGIUM COULD BE AN IMPORTANT AQUIFER FOR GEOTHERMAL USES, AS IT IS IN THE REGION OF MONS.
BRINGING THE WELL CONCERNED TO AN ACCEPTABLE PRODUCTION WILL BOOST GEOTHERMAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE REGION.

A GEOTHERMAL HOLE HAS BEEN DRILLED IN MERKSPLAS-BEERSE. THIS WELL DID NOT HAVE THE EXPECTED PRODUCTIVITY AND HAS CONSEQUENTLY BEEN STIMULATED
THE DIFFERENT TESTING DATA AND STIMULATION DATA HAVE TO BE BROUGHT TOGETHER AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP STUDIED. A FINAL TESTING AT MAXIMUM PRODUCTION CAPACITY HAS TO BE CARRIED OUT TO EVALUATE THE PREDICTING CALCULATIONS.
