The impact of re-injection of geothermal fluids on fluid flow properties and mechanical stability in fractured/faulted limestone reservoirs. (3E022619)

One of the emerging techniques for sustainable energy production is the use of geothermal energy: heat is extracted from the deep subsurface, used for heating or the production of electricity, and then re-injected in the reservoir. The goal is set out to
