CO2 is the natural lift of most of the geothermal wells in Turkey. However often this lift weakens due to decreasing CO2 contents in the geothermal water. Artificial lift offers possibilities that has to be taken into account for the production of geothermal water.
This Workshop takes a closer look on this topic from different perspectives.
