1 Geo-Information Programme Deep Subsurface Mapping Progress 2011 Activities 2012 and beyond Hans Doornenbal Program leader Deep Subsurface Mapping

2 1 Seminar 16 Feb 2011 Success!! Combination of presentations and workshops 27 April 2011 Seminar has been repeated Programme Southern Permian Basin Atlas (SPBA) Mapping of the Netherlands Offshore Area (NCP-2) ThermoGIS

3 2 Geological mapping in the Netherlands : Onshore series of 15 sheets : NCP-1 quickscan : NCP-2 mapping in 7 subareas

4 3 Application areas of the deep subsurface Oil and gas production, mining (oil, gas, salt, coal etc.) Geothermal energy Underground storage (gas, CO 2 etc.) Subsidence Climate, environment and safety Spatial planning / management

5 4 Main products DGM-DEEP - Digital Geological layer Model DEEP subsurface Stratigraphic borehole interpretations Seismic interpretation Fault database (~3800) Uncertainties Specific Reservoir properties (reservoir, seal and source rock e.g. T, p, v, poro, perm,.) Dissemination: Maps, reports and (web-based) digital products; data access through NLOG and DINO-Loket

6 5 New trends Policy support + knowledge for sustainable solutions use deep subsurface (geothermal energy, CO 2 - storage) Regional inventory new gas prospects (shallow gas, gas shales, tight gas, CBM, ) Climate & Safety (prediction, risks and human impact) Spatial planning (VRODO)

7 6 Mapping program Guarantee the continuity of current programs Shift to (other) application areas of actual needs/questions and data needs Onshore, ultra-deep and shallow Upgrading and actualisation of knowledge needed for geothermal energy, CCS and unconvential gas Emphasis on dynamics (processes, prospectivity and forecasting/planning) Thematic policy support Division/structure of projects on basis of disciplines Integral program adjusting with other teams (needs and priorities)!

8 7 Products & Activities (1 of 7) Onshore mapping for Geothermal energy / CO 2 On- en offshore mapping Tertiary (*) and ultradeep Dynamic modeling (evolution) of the subsurface Maintenance DGM-DEEP and Subsidence tool (*) Data and supporting tools (*) (*) cooperation deep and shallow subsurface

9 8 Products & Activities (2 of 7) Onshore modeling for Geothermal energy/co2 Specific reservoir layers (structure and properties) Mapping ultradeep subsurface (structure, properties and evolution) Uncertainties Dynamical evolution subsurface and fault properties Temperature model and geothermal properties Prioritization: N & S-Holland, stakeholders demand geology porosity Heat capacity Thermal conductivity Temperature

10 9 Products & Activities (3 of 7) On- en offshore modeling Tertiary Relevant reservoir layers and depositional units/traps (geometry and properties) Mapping of Tertiary units (structure, properties, and evolution in 3D sequence-stratigraphic framework) Storage radioactive waste in clay Dynamical evolution subsurface (temperature model, fluid flow and pressure distribution) Fault properties and uncertainties Prioritization: in concordance with shallow mapping program Temperature

11 10 Products & Activities (4 of 7) On- and offshore modeling Ultra-deep Relevant reservoir layers and depositional units/traps (geometry and properties) Mapping of ultradeep units (structure, properties, and evolution in 3D sequence-stratigraphic framework) Geothermal energy Dinantian limestones Carboniferous platforms Rotliegend sandstones Potential areas shale gas Coal-Bed Methane Carboniferous coal Jurassic en Tertairy browncoal Shale gas Devonian -Bosscheveld Formation Carboniferous - Geverik Fm (Zuid & Oost NL) Jurassic -Sleen and Aalburg Fm, Posidonia Fm CBM Basin Centered Gas Jurassic - Scruff, Schieland and Niedersaksen group above Posidonia Shale Carboniferous: synclinal structures > 5000 m Basin Centered gas
