Well Engineering Partners and its engineers are members of several national and international associations. By participating in these associations we are:
- sharing our experiences and knowledge,
- learning from others with the best practices,
- keeping up to date with latest developments,
- strengthening our networks in our industries, and
- promoting and stimulating particular industries (national and international).
We are member of the following associations:
EGEC – European Geothermal Energy Council
EGEC, the European Geothermal Energy Council, is a non-profit international organisation founded in 1998 to promote the European geothermal industry and enable its development both in Europe and worldwide, by shaping policy, improving business condition, and driving more research and development.
Geothermie Nederland is the association for the geothermal sector in the Netherlands. This organisation is established in 2021 by the merger of Platform Geothermie and DAGO (Dutch Association for Geothermal Operators). Geothermie Nederland associates all companies and organisations with an interest in the Dutch geothermal sector. The objective of Geothermie Nederland and its members is to contribute to the availability of sustainable and affordable heat for citizens and companies.
IADC – International Association of Drilling Contractors
The International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) is dedicated to enhancing the interests of the oil-and-gas and geothermal drilling and completion industry worldwide.
The only French competitiveness cluster dealing with the subsurface sectors. AVENIA represents, oversees, and federates 215 members (major groups, SMEs, research & training organizations, incentive, and federative bodies). AVENIA knows and understands all its members, and for this reason is able to propose pertinent collective actions, boost the development and growth of its member companies, support them in their strategies and initiate innovative and collaborative R&D projects.
SMRI – Solution Mining Research Institute
The Solution Mining Research Institute (SMRI) is a research and educational organization focused on solution mining. SMRI views solution mining as mining of underground, water-soluble minerals, usually using one or more drilled wells to dissolve the minerals with water (not by using acids used in metal ore leaching).
SPE – Society of Petroleum Engineers
The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is a not-for-profit professional organization whose stated mission is “to collect, disseminate, and exchange technical knowledge concerning the exploration, development and production of oil and gas resources and related technologies for the public benefit; and to provide opportunities for professionals to enhance their technical and professional competence”.
Notice: WEP is not a corporate member, the majority of WEP’s staff is member of the SPE.
Well Engineering Partners is a proud member of several consortia. We provide in these consortia specific well design and drilling engineering expertise to stimulate the energy and heat transition. Besides the consortia listed below, we also support other consortia via consortium members who consult us for our expertise.
Drag reduction in geothermal & district heating systems to lower investment and operational costs. The goal of this project is to assess the techno-economic viability of DRA’s (Drag Reducing Agents) for geothermal multi-source district heating networks. The project investigates the technical and economic contribution of DRA’s to district heating networks and geothermal wells.
Dutch Geothermal Cluster
DGC is an independent non-profit organisation that supports and promotes the Dutch geothermal expertise globally. The members are experts in their own specialisms and realised dozens of geothermal heat and power projects in the Netherlands and abroad.
LEAN – Warmtebron Utrecht
The objective of the research project Lean is to investigate the possibilities of sustainable heat in the Dutch province Utrecht. The research question is: are we able to provide 3,000 households with sustainable heat by just one geothermal project?
