Repurposing Oil and Gas Wells Offshore – Gulf of Mexico

  • Tens of thousands of end of life oil and gas wells are waiting to be abandoned;
  • Environmentally sustainable value is possible from some of these wells, allowing abandonment to be postponed;
  • Good well data of many wells with Bottom Hole Temperatures >212degF (100degC) and a significant number >302degF (150degC) – potentially suitable for low enthalpy power generation using economically developable sedimentary reservoirs;
  • Good existing infrastructure with wells, platforms, and pipelines able to host Geothermal energy production and power export systems including potential Green Hydrogen mixed into existing gas export pipelines.
