Project Description

Ammerlaan Geothermie B.V. has drilled two wells forming a geothermal doublet for district and greenhouse heating. Both wells have long tangent sections @ 60 degrees. Both wells are drilled successfully to TD . Installation of liner over reservoir was difficult. Both wells required a cased hole sidetrack to successfully install the liner over the reservoir.
