  • In EGS concepts like the one at Soultz, knowledge of the fracture network is essential to understand reservoir behavior and plan further stimulations and long term hydraulic circulation. At Soultz, the targeted reservoir is located at a 5km depth within the granite basement of the Upper Rhine Graben near the western border of France. This granite underwent a complex tectonic history including the Hercynian and Alpine orogeneses, leading to the currently observed fracturing. This fracturing is… CONTINUE READING
