Application of the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) to Geothermal Energy Resources

Selected Case Studies

image of Application of the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) to Geothermal Energy Resources

This publication includes a set of 14 case studies on the application of the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) to geothermal energy from Australia, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the Philippines and Russian Federation. The case studies presented here illustrate the application of the geothermal energy specifications for the uniform use of UNFC in different contexts. These application examples from different countries provide a range of scenarios in the classification of geothermal resources in a manner consistent with the classification of other energy resources.

Rotliegend-3 geothermal project

The Rotliegend-3 geothermal exploration project was started up in 2010. The project is aiming to provide the heat base load to greenhouses to replace a significant heat input from gas fired heat and power systems. Based on the regional geothermal potential mapping [2] this area was chosen for further evaluation. The latter evaluation comprised a detailed subsurface evaluation of a selected subset of the Dutch public subsurface dataset. This data set comprised five offset wells, a 3D-seismic dataset and a 2D seismic dataset.
