Modern ways of exploring geothermal resources in Indonesia and Netherlands to boost the energy transition

The Geothermal Capacity Building program GEOCAP, a bilateral program (6MEURO) between Netherlands and Indonesia, has been running since 2013 and is foreseen to continue until 2022. In this public-private partnership we thus have a decade of experience which we share in this session. The session addresses sustainable solutions for geothermal exploration including environment friendly methods, looks at the synergy between surface and subsurface exploration methods, and how to upscale local geologic information to regional prospectivity. In this risk analysis and mitigation, geology as well as economy and the environment are integral components of a multi-disciplinary workflow developed by GEOCAP. Methods for modern exploration of geothermal resources include those derived from remote sensing and earth observation, 3D subsurface/surface (thermo) GIS and modelling, geophysics, geochemistry and engineering. We explore synergies between exploration methods directed towards derisking operations and increasing drilling success rates. In this session through Q&A and open discussion we intend to identify scientific white spots, leading to a preliminary science and policy agenda for future bilateral collaboration on geothermal exploration and education. By emphasizing the focus on (solving) real-world problems we feel there is broad scope for the private sector participation in the session and in setting the agenda. Our target audience are geoscientists, policy makers and private enterprises. This session emphasizes the use of remote sensing public domain images (SAR and thermal) for geothermal exploration, especially in high enthalpy volcanic geothermal systems which generally have significant surface manifestations and are mostly controlled by geological structures, both primary and secondary structures. Some of the developments in remote sensing techniques and methods that have been carried out and the case study of remote sensing analysis in geothermal exploration will also be presented as learning and discussion materials.
