Title:
METHOD FOR UTILIZING THE INNER ENERGY OF AN AQUIFER FLUID IN A GEOTHERMAL PLANT
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2016/172807
Kind Code:
A8
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for utilizing the inner energy of an aquifer fluid (A) comprising geothermal thermal water (T) mixed with gas (G) and optionally crude oil (E) in a closed cycle. The object of the invention is to obtain an environmentally-neutral, carbon-dioxide-free utilization of the aquifer fluid (A) and an environmentally-friendly supply of electric and thermal energy. To achieve this, an aquifer fluid (A) is removed from an aquifer (0) by means of a removal device (10), gas (G) is separated by degassing the aquifer fluid (A) in a gas-separation device (11), optionally crude oil (E) is separated if necessary, the heat energy of the thermal water (T) is utilized in at least one system for utilizing the thermal energy (12-14), the extracted gas (G) and the optionally separated crude oil is combusted in at least one combustion device (24, 24a) and the inner energy of the gas (G) is utilized by operating a generator (25), the CO2 being removed from the waste gas and recycled into the aquifer.
