With a target depth of over 2000m vertical, the first well (GT-02 Injection Well) shall target the Dinantian Reservoir.
Driven by Johnson & Johnson’s pledge to reduce carbon emissions by 20 % by 2020 and 80 % by 2050, Janssen is looking to become the first industrial developer of a geothermal project in Belgium.
ERDWERK has been involved in the project since its inception and shall have a full time supervision presence on the drilling site for the duration of drilling and testing.
The doublet is planned to be drilled to a depth of approximately 2500 m TVD to exploit geothermal water with a temperature of approximately 90 °C. The well site shall be located on the campus between existing buildings.
ERDWERK GmbH has supported Janssen through the development of the project and well design and drilling program and tender process. ERDWERK will act as specialist geothermal consultant for project going forward into the drilling phase.
