Grozni geothermal project

Verkís conducted a feasibility study for the utilization of geothermal hot water from old oil wells in the Starogroznenskaya oil field for production of electricity and hot water for district heating. The Starogroznenskaya oil field upper cretaceous reservoir is a depleted oil reservoir 8 km from the city center of Grozny in the Chechen Republic in the Russian federation. Most of the oil wells were drilled during the years 1964-1974 and the oil was mostly depleted by 1988 when water injection into several wells was ceased.
