Presentation 1:
Mineralogical Studies on Wall-rock Alteration Zoning in the Hishikari Gold Deposit: Reconstruction of Thermal Structure in the Paleogeothermal System
五ノ井 祐二(Yuji Gonoi)(九州大学)

Presentation 2:
Underground structure inferred from gravity and gravity gradiometry survey in the geothermal area
西島 潤(Jun Nishijima)(九州大学)
地熱開発における重力・重力偏差法探査は、基盤岩や貫入岩体の形状把握や地熱流体の流路や貯留層となる断層構造を検出することを目的として行われている。近年重力計やGNSS受信機などの測定機器の精度向上に伴ってマイクロガルオーダー(10-8 m/s2)の重力異常差による微小な地下構造の検出が可能になってきている。本発表では重力・重力偏差法探査の概要と地熱地域における適用例を紹介する。

Presentation 3:
Simulating well testing on the analogy between pressure and thermal diffusion:
Development of an educational material based on analogue experiments controlling skin, wellbore storage, and boundary effects
松本 光央(Mitsuo Matsumoto)(九州大学)

Presentation 4:
Sustainable Development of Geothermal Energy
Saeid JALILINASRABADY (Kyushu University)
Geothermal power plant has different stages for its lifetime, from exploration to operation and maintenance. Early stages of geothermal development, including exploration and exploitation, are time-consuming with very high-risk factors. Production drilling will be conducted considering geological, geochemical, and geophysical surveys. Once production starts, the profit will be equal to the cost of exploration, exploitation, and production over the plant’s lifetime. Therefore, sustainability is very important for geothermal power plant development. Sustainability is affected by the nature of geothermal energy and its social acceptance, including environmental impacts.
As a consequence of geothermal energy development, we face several environmental impacts that need to be considered. Those environmental impacts include both physical and social. Several parameters need to be considered in the physical aspect, namely air emission, noise emission, water contamination, solid waste, and physical disturbance. Despite the possibility of those physical impacts by geothermal power generation, the impact significance is still much lower than those in fossil-fueled power generation (i.e., oil, gas, and coal). The developed (and developing) technologies nowadays overcome those impacts from geothermal energy development.
Furthermore, suppose we consider each energy source’s environmental cost of power generation. In that case, geothermal falls among the cheap energy sources regarding environmental and maintenance costs and still can be considered the best energy source for future generations. Geothermal is more sustainable than wind and photovoltaic for other impact factors such as CO2 emission, efficiency, and land usage. This talk will overview geothermal development from subsurface to surface and discuss essential mitigation and monitoring methods to achieve sustainable geothermal development.
