Have you been affected by the low oil price?
Are you looking to grow your business by serving new markets? CanGEA helps organizations recognize the overlap between their current lines of business, and helps them adapt their services and technologies to access new markets within the geothermal power and heat industry by:
This workshop is being professionally facilitated by Marc Godin from PTAC.
Globally, developments for an estimated 18.6 gigawatts of geothermal power are currently underway in 70 countries. That’s a $100-billion investment, say data from Canadian Geothermal Energy Association. - CanGEA featured in The PEG

Technology has a large role to play in harnessing geothermal energy. While the industry has been established for more than a century, it remains a subsurface exploitation business – characterized by large gaps in information and significant associated risk at the early project stages, which various technologies attempt to address. Technology has been called on to respond to and push both the operating and economic boundaries forward.
The industry needs the equipment and services that originate from the oil and gas industry to make geothermal projects more competitive and to increase the known resource base, whether in Canada, or internationally. The workshop aims to provide briefings to oil and gas equipment & service providers and industry professionals about how the geothermal market can be an end user of your technology processes and expertise. The techniques used for exploration, evaluation, and production of petroleum resources are applicable for geothermal energy.
CanGEA has identified that Canadian based service companies have all the skills necessary to deliver geothermal projects globally and that there is a driving need for these services in order to reduce the exploration and reservoir risk in geothermal projects. Skills that have already been adapted for SAGD, CSS and other thermal processes. Of special note is the large contribution that drilling and completions play in a geothermal project. Approximately 25% of the overall cost is in these areas. A further 50% of the cost is for power turbines, piping and facilities.
In essence, the workshop aims to inform the oil and gas industry:
